Summer Movies on the Wall: The slate is set


Online and in “ballot boxes” placed at West Seattle businesses, hundreds of people offered suggestions for the Sidewalk Cinema Movies on the Wall series in The Junction coming up in July and August — now Lora Lewis, proprietor of Hotwire Coffee (WSB sponsor), which is next to the courtyard with the big screen you see above, confirms the slate is set — read on:

Reminder that this isn’t the result of just raw “votes” — other factors were involved including the availability of movies, suitability for all-ages audience, and input from sponsors. There aren’t exact times for when the movies start, because it’s generally “when it gets dark” – which as you know, gets earlier as the summer goes on.

SATURDAY, JULY 19: Monty Python and the Holy Grail (PG), sponsored by the West Seattle Junction Association

SATURDAY, JULY 26: The Goonies (PG), co-sponsored by Nicholson Kovalchick Architects and Click! Design That Fits (WSB sponsor)

SATURDAY, AUGUST 2: Who Framed Roger Rabbit (PG), sponsored by West Seattle Blog, co-sponsored by Click! Design That Fits (WSB sponsor)

SATURDAY, AUGUST 9: Finding Nemo (G), sponsored by the four dentists, co-sponsored by Dream Dinners (WSB sponsor), West Seattle Christian Preschool & Pagliacci Pizza

SATURDAY, AUGUST 16: Ghostbusters (PG), sponsored by Curious Kidstuff and co-sponsored by Square One Books (with ‘Pizza 4 All’ courtesy of Garlic Jim’s [WSB sponsor])

SATURDAY, AUGUST 23: My Dog Skip (PG), sponsored by Kim Tingley/Windermere and co-sponsored by Viking Bank

Cupcakes provided by Coffee to a Tea with Sugar for all movies
Concessions provided by West Seattle Christian Church (WSB sponsor)

We’ll add all this (with movie info links) to the Cinema page here on the site shortly, and will add the movie details to the Events page (where you’ll find dates for other summer fun) but wanted to post it here on the main page first. If you’re interested in other outdoor-movie sites around the area, the Sidewalk Cinema site has a tentative list of the ones they’re involved with — ours here in West Seattle is by far the most extensive. (Last year’s West Seattle list, by the way, was in this WSB post.)

    Yay! We’re particularly excited to sponsor “Roger Rabbit” — sentimental fave from long ago. Jessica Rabbit’s quote about Roger is often the secret to a truly lasting relationship (and ours is in year 24) … “He makes me laugh.” (Said with fondness, of course.)
