2 reminders for tonight: Outdoor Movies; house on the move

(UPDATE – 7:11 pm, just substituted this new photo for previous “file” pic – courtyard’s starting to fill up!)

ORIGINAL 6:15 PM REPORT: Two Saturday night reminders: First, if you haven’t gathered up your chairs and blankets yet – just a couple of hours till the first West Seattle Outdoor Movies presentation of the year, “Mamma Mia” – preceded by two shorts and even a dance party. Full details in our Friday preview. We’ve been asked “what time does everything start” – that’s always tricky since it’s a matter of “when’s dusk” and backtiming from there, and also the “first come, first served” nature of seating space. We’d advise erring on the early side. Meantime, for our fellow night-owls – tonight’s the night for an unusual overnight journey that will wind up here:

Lots of activity this morning at the Admiral site (2758 46th SW) where a house will be moved in the wee hours from its current spot at 4516 42nd SW in The Junction. We’ve reported on this a couple times before – our second story has the most details and photos, including some of the interior touches that led a local couple to buy it so they could have it moved and renovated. There’s “no parking” signage along some of the route that will be used between midnight at 6, so if you’re parked in the area along the route (mapped here by our partners at the Seattle Times), make sure you’ve moved your vehicle in time! We’ll be covering this as-it-happens overnight, so if you’re up, check in for updates.

    I’ve always wondered about that v. large lot with a small house on it. Now there will be two “age-appropriate” houses on that lot and 2 years from now, no one will know that the one in front is newer (unlike a nearby abode). Huzzah!

    The first movie night was a hit! This was my first time and me and my friends had a great time – loved the free cotton candy, popcorn and Ice cream – and the dance party was great too. Can’t wait till next weekend!!

Sorry, comment time is over.
