‘Singles’ next for West Seattle Outdoor Movies, after big opener

The Seattle grunge-rock love (sort of) story “Singles,” from 1992, is up next at West Seattle Outdoor Movies, Saturday night (July 25th) on the wall in the courtyard at Hotwire Online Coffeehouse (WSB sponsor) in The Junction. That’s where a sizable crowd watched “Zoolander” open this year’s WSOM series last night – many were staked out more than an hour in advance:

Each movie night’s sponsors bring something unique – last night’s slate included Quadrato with pizza and The Beer Junction with root-beer floats:

Longtime WSB sponsor Westside Dermatology was a sponsor last night too. Rainier Roller Girls were both the pre-show entertainment and the raffle beneficiary (bring a few bucks for raffle tickets if you can – the movie itself is free):

And every week, concessions will be sold by (and benefiting) the Southwest Seattle Historical Society, which brings along its “guess how many Lincoln Logs” jar:

Next week, we’re co-sponsoring “Singles” with Elliott Bay Brewing; live music is the preshow entertainment, courtesy of “Stay Tuned, The Band“; raffle beneficiary is Northwest Center. The movie’s at dusk; gates open at 6:30. Preview the rest of the season’s slate (with sponsors and entertainment) here.

    Singles is a must see for any good Seattleite, and especially for West Seattle. The (lack of) travel continuity is hysterical. Fun story too.

    Don’t forget to look for the crash scene filmed at the intersection of California and Charlestown! Kyra and Campbell are arguing while she driving and…… !!!

      4th, did not know that!

    Singles was filmed in Seattle in 1990. If you were a young person living here before/during the Grunge Boom, the movie is a fun glimpse into a former era.

    Awesome soundtrack too. One of the best Zeppelin covers ever, courtesy of Lovemonger.

    This movie was terrible and was when “the grunge scene” jumped the shark. BTW, when I was a teenager, I was at a friend’s house about a block away when that crash happened. We ran down the street cause it sounded really bad only to find out that it was a movie scene.

    Good grief, Singles was an excruciatingly precious movie. For some reason Seattle has been the dumping ground for cheesy films. I’d suggest “House of Games,” a Mamet film, for the future.

    Btw, for those who want to revisit downtown Seattle of the late 80’s (particularly around 2nd/Union), there is some fine footage in “House of Games,” including the original 211 billiards, a space now occupied by Benaroya Hall.

    House of Games was excellent, with a cameo appearance by the West Seattle Bridge.

    Great performance with a young Joe Mantegna and a small part with William Macy. Ran into Mantegna filming a segment of Criminal Minds a few months ago in Lake Balboa, mentioned House of Games. He got a kick out of that.

Sorry, comment time is over.
