WEST SEATTLE OUTDOOR MOVIES: Help choose the 2018 lineup! Sponsors sought, too

(WSB photo, August 2017)

Another one of the fun events getting ever-closer is the West Seattle Outdoor Movies series, presented by the West Seattle YMCA (WSB sponsor) with the West Seattle Junction Association in the “festival street” outside the Y. Every year, WSB readers help determine the lineup; this year, the YMCA and WSJA have pre-vetted a list of 9 movies from which they hope to present 6 favorites, so you’re invited to speak up for one you really want to see, or which six you would pick, or even rank all nine in your order of preference:

• Coco
• Jumanji
• Black Panther
• Wonder Woman
• Star Wars: Last Jedi
• Paddington 2
• A Wrinkle In Time
• Peter Rabbit
• Secret Life of Pets

The series runs six consecutive Saturday nights, starting July 21st. Please post your vote/ranking/etc.in the comment section below!

P.S. Whether or not you want to offer an opinion on the movies, here’s another way to be part of WSOM – sponsorship! We’re already in again this year as media sponsor. But lots of support is needed – renting popular movies for public screenings gets more expensive every year! There are a variety of sponsorship levels (see them here) – as WSJA’s Lora Swift puts it, ways to “power up.” Whichever level you choose, you can sign up and pay here.

P.P.S. Almost forgot to include the link to last year’s lineup!

    “Coco” for sure.” Its themes of music and family are compelling, as is the focus on Mexican culture. It’s the most colorful film I’ve ever seen, and each of the four times I saw it, I cried at the end, just like happens with “It’s a Wonderful Life.” It’s a film kids love (the protagonist is a 12-year-old boy), yet it is even more appealing to adults. And it won best animated film at the Oscars two months ago. It’s one of my all-time top-10 films, the ultimate cinematic experience.

    Any chance of a bigger screen this year? Prob just me, but it’s a little small unless you are lucky/prepared enough to be down front.

    Skip Secret Life Of Pets all together – it’s terrible.

    I like the Goonies suggestion, but, have you seen that recently!?  It’s WAY more ‘adult’ than I ever remember it being.  Still backing it, but parents be warned, it’s not the movie you remember from your youth :)

    BP, WW, Coco, SWLJ – all good I think.  What’s that one animated one that I never saw – oh Song of the Sea – but that’s from 2014 prob everone’s seen it
