Suggested one yet? 1 more call for West Seattle Outdoor Movies

April 18, 2011 at 10:37 am | In West Seattle news, West Seattle Outdoor Movies | 14 Comments

Thanks to everybody who answered the first call for suggestions for this summer’s West Seattle Outdoor Movies (a six-Saturday series in the courtyard by Hotwire Online Coffeehouse [WSB sponsor]). Organizers are getting ready to sit down and look ahead, so they asked if we would put out one more call, in case you missed the first one. Since the movies are a free, all-ages event, they need to be somewhat family-friendly, but that does not mean they have to be kid-geared or even G-rated. Here’s the direct link to the comment area with the suggestions that came in earlier this month; here’s the movie list from last year – the biggest crowd was for the kickoff movie, “Mamma Mia!” You can make a suggestion via comments here or via the Outdoor Movies Facebook page – thanks for your help!

    HARRY AND THE HENDERSONS!!!!!
    Big
    Troop Beverly Hills

    How about a couple episodes of Gilligan’s Island (or something silly like that)? It would give you a few minutes in between to stretch, play some trivia games, costume contest, theme song sing-off, buy more snacks. Just an idea….
