‘Legends of the Road’ screening/benefit @ Admiral Theater
Jun 27 @ 5:30 pm – 7:30 pm

‘Legends of the Road’ showcases Chief Sealth High School students and Bob Kendrick of Negro Leagues Baseball Museum on June 27

Restoration of the art-deco underwater murals of West Seattle’s Historic Admiral Theater will get a boost this summer with a one-night screening of a documentary that showcases a project by local students to salute the black baseball barnstorming phenomenon of the early 20th century.

“Legends of the Road,” a feature-length, student-produced film, will be screened at 6:45 p.m. Tuesday, June 27, 2017, at the Historic Admiral Theater, 2343 California Ave. SW, sponsored by the Southwest Seattle Historical Society.

The film, which won the highest audience rating at the 2017 Kansas City Film Festival, will be introduced by Bob Kendrick, president of the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum in Kansas City, and former teacher Gary Thomsen of West Seattle, who led the “Legends” project at Chief Sealth High School.

After the film, Kendrick, Thomsen and several of Thomsen’s former students will be available to answer questions.

Admission will be by $20 donation, which will go to the Historic Admiral Theater mural restoration led by the Southwest Seattle Historical Society. A VIP opportunity, to see the film and visit one-on-one with the featured speakers beforehand, will begin at 5:30 p.m. at the theater. This opportunity is available by reservation at a $100 donation
.
Both levels of tickets can be purchased at Far Away Entertainment, and at the door.

‘Bowling with Bowlies For Babies’ Fundraiser for Westside Baby @ Roxbury Lanes
Jun 27 @ 7:00 pm

Registration info here:
JUNE 27, 2017 – BOWLING WITH BOWLIES FOR BABIES
Fundraiser for Westside Baby, providing basics for children in need

The David Bowlie League invites you to bowl with the Bowlies this summer at Roxbury Lanes and help us raise some money to support community events and organizations.

Registration includes two hours of unlimited bowling (non-league style), shoe rental, beer/wine and snacks (while supplies last), and entry into door prize drawing. We’ll have other prizes for random scores, and more! Best of all, we’ll have a ton of fun while raising some funds for our great community!

Pre-registration deadlines are one week out from each event. Night of registrations are limited to whatever space is still available at the lanes.

(The events are ages, we love kids, and we’ll totally hold your baby, but be forewarned that the Bowlies also like to drink and swear. Sometimes loudly. It’s up to you to decide if that’s going to be appropriate for your kids.)
