We Heart Mickey Rourke

We're already rooting for Mickey Rourke to win the Oscar for The Wrestler (review here) on Sunday, Feb. 22. Before that, however, you can make a date with the man in his pre-boxing, pre-middle age, pre-plastic surgery (or whatever it is) prime. Yes, ladies, we are talking about the 1986 hit Nine 1/2 Weeks, in which Rourke and Kim Basinger get all steamy by the light of the fridge (and in any number of other places).

As our Suzie Rugh will probably relate on our companion blog Voracious, you can make a Valentine's Day reservation at The Big Picture Redmond to see the movie (9 p.m., Sat. Feb. 14). $25 includes drink and dessert, and you can probably order more items off the house menu. But, please, keep your ice cubes on your own bodies only.

Doors open at 8 p.m. Reservations required; 21 and over. Big Picture Redmond, 7411 166th Ave. N.E., 425-556-0566.
