Another championship game: Big soccer, big screen, at Admiral Theater tomorrow (food drive, too)

Another championship game happening tomorrow (Saturday, May 25th) – as shown on The Admiral Theater‘s marquee, and previewed here a week and a half ago, tomorrow is the day you can join the West Seattle Soccer Club for an open house and live screening of the 2013 UEFA Champions League final match between German powerhouses Borussia Dortmund and FC Bayern Munich. Doors open at 10:30 am and close when they reach capacity – but everybody’s welcome, first-come, first-served. No admission charge, but please bring a “kid-friendly food item” to benefit the West Seattle Food Bank. One change from the original announcement, according to WSSC’s Tim McMonigle (who also shared the marquee photo) – the kids’ movie (for children not interested in the game) is now a free bonus showing of “Oz, the Great and Powerful,” one of the Admiral’s current films. It’ll start at about 11 am, and end around the same time as the match, which starts around 11:45, after 11 am preliminaries.

  4. Why did Admiral stop showing SIFFs? We miss seeing them in West Seattle.

  5. possibly no SIFF because there is NO PARKING for the theater. I went last night to see quartet, no parking anywhere that I could find. I doubt many want to drive from other parts of Seattle over here only to have to leave/miss the movies because NO PARKING.

    There have been at least 3 times in the past year where we gave up going there because we could not find a place to park. And the buses don’t service the Admiral district well enough for it to work for movie-goers.

    if the ownership wants to up attendance, this should be a top priority.

  6. SIFF reduced its locations before last season – one major reason, it has its own theater now, the Uptown in Queen Anne. Re: parking, that also was discussed in our recent report on the Admiral’s future. Was the parking garage next to Bartell full too? That’s a significant source of spaces for the businesses in that area. – TR
