Suggested a movie yet? Friday’s the deadline


If you haven’t already sent in a suggestion via our handy online form — “ballot boxes” like the one shown above are at 6 West Seattle locations awaiting your suggestions for what to show during Movies on the Wall this July and August in the courtyard next to Hotwire Coffee (WSB sponsor). As a co-sponsor of this summer’s series, we’ve been offering you the chance for about 2 weeks now to have a say in what’s shown this year — Hotwire’s Lora Lewis says Friday’s the deadline, so time’s running out. Lora says these are some of the frontrunners so far:

The Muppet Movie
Original Batman movie
Sleepless in Seattle
So I Married an Axe Murderer
Jurassic Park

As previously noted, Monty Python and the Holy Grail — repeatedly rained out late last summer (boo!) — will be the kickoff flick on July 19th. Again: Vote online here (or follow the Cinema tab atop this page), or by dropping a suggestion into the “ballot boxes” set up at these West Seattle locations: Hotwire Coffee (WSB sponsor), Click! Design that Fits (WSB sponsor), West 5, Capers, Curious Kidstuff, Square 1 Books.

    I voted for Buckaroo Banzai. It’s as quirky as West Seattle itself!

    I would like to encourage everyone (especially anyone reading this with a scooter) to vote for Quadrophenia

  • Wes May 14, 2008 (7:57 pm)

    Jane! Stop this crazy thing…called looove.

  • Todd in WEstwood/S.Delridge May 14, 2008 (8:17 pm)

    ohhh , “we are. we are. we are the Mods!” I second Quadrophenia. But I get to play the part of the Cafe Racer riding rocker! “BELLBOY!”

    and one for Wes. ” Looks like an orange on a toothpick!, Head! T.V.”

    Todd – it’s “Gort, Klaatu barada nikto.”

    Klatuu is capitalized as it’s “Mr. Carpenter’s” real name.

    Yes, I’m that bad of a geek since it is one of the greatest films ever made.

    Here’s three family films to consider –

    Bride of the Monster

    I Married a Monster

    Hows about The Brain That Wouldnt Die!
    or make it easier and do a MST3K ( Mystery Science Theater 3000 ) showing??

    I still say Faster Pussycat Kill Kill would be awesome
