For those wondering if and when you'd be able to watch Gleason, the documentary that follows the former Coug and Saint as he develops ALS, the official website for the movie has released a boat load of screening sites. The movie opens on July 29th and over three weekends, the movie will screen in Washington seven times.

On the opening day, Seattle-area folks interested in the film can see it at Guild 45th in Seattle or at Lincoln Square in Bellevue. The following Friday includes four theaters, Alderwood Mall in Lynnwood, Meridian in Seattle, Southcenter in Tukwila and the movie's first appearance in Spokane at River Park Square.

On August 12th, Spokane will get the final showing listed for Washington at Village Centre. For Vancouver/Portland area Cougs, get your tickets early: this is also the day the showings of Gleason will be available at Fox Tower.

The number of showings at each theater will likely vary so if you want to see it (and you should if you read our review from it's premiere at the Seattle International Film Festival), plan ahead and get your tickets early. The film is getting a lot of critical acclaim so even some casual movie goers might be interested in seeing it.

Here is the trailer for Gleason:
