The 2014 series of free West Seattle Outdoor Movies – in the courtyard next to Hotwire Online Coffeehouse (WSB sponsor) – is 2+ months away, but planning has already begun, and that’s where you come in: Suggestion time starts now, in the comment section below! The movies need to be relatively family-friendly, since it’s an all-ages crowd, but that does NOT necessarily mean kid-targeted. And the movies shown in the past few years are off-limits for reruns – here are the last three season lineups:

*2013′s movie lineup was Goldfinger, Devil Wears Prada, Muppets, Avengers, Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure, This Is Spinal Tap

*2012′s movie lineup was Pretty in Pink, Young Frankenstein, Lion King, Iron Man, Yellow Submarine, Top Gun

*2011′s movie lineup was Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, Pee Wee’s Big Adventure, Airplane, Despicable Me, Jurassic Park (1), Toy Story 3

The six-movie season will start in late July – exact dates to come.

  67. I should note that the movie committee has met and made its tentative decisions (I’ve had a sneak peek and yes, the suggestions help!) but they won’t be public until it’s assured they have the rights to run those movies – sometimes they’re not available for outdoor showing, or they are but with a ridiculously expensive “license,” etc. Stand by for news as soon as it’s ready to go! – TR
