West Seattle scene: Lafayette celebration at Admiral Theater

November 11, 2011 at 1:18 am | In Admiral Theater, West Seattle news, West Seattle schools | 5 Comments

The historic Admiral Theater is only about a block away from Lafayette Elementary – convenient for the crowd that packed Thursday night’s movie-watching party celebrating last month’s Walk-A-Thon. As noted here, the annual tradition was a success again this fall, and the money it raises is more important every year, since Lafayette is West Seattle’s most-populous elementary school – more than 540 students last time we checked the enrollment numbers.


  1. just curious: what movie do they get to watch?

  3. It was RIO this year. They voted on it – it was between that, Cars II, and another one, I think.

  4. Hey Lafayette parents–If your child came home without a coat Thursday, check out the bench near the Lander St gate. I picked up 6 soggy jackets on the playground today!

  5. Cars 2, Rio and Rango were the choices, I believe.

    Gina, I also grabbed an armload of soaking wet jackets (and two backpacks!) from the playground a few weeks ago, after the rain had picked back up. It’s kinda crazy how many items are already in the Lost & Found. They’ll be donated over Thanksgiving break if not claimed in the next week and a half, so check your kids’ closets and see if you’re missing anything! (Wonder where they get donated… maybe some of the kids @ Nickelsville could use them?)
