Wall-to-wall crowd for first Movies on the Wall show of the summer

That’s the best crowd shot we have but it still doesn’t do justice to just how jampacked the courtyard between Hotwire Coffee (WSB sponsor) and Dr. Wolff was, by the time tonight’s first Summer Outdoor Movies on the Wall show — “The Princess Bride” — got going around 9 pm. (People were still trying to jam in after the movie started!) We’ve seen some well-attended showings in the past few years but nothing like this one, with people even filling the eastern wing of the courtyard. For the pre-show festivities, Hotwire proprietor Lora Lewis hosted a “Dating Game” – here are your three bachelors (#1, at right, “won” – we’ll add video later):

One of tonight’s sponsors was Dream Dinners (WSB sponsor) – here’s proprietor Leslie Thomson (left) and assistant, who served up barbecue sliders:

West Seattle Christian Church provides the concessions, with proceeds going to nonprofits:

Next week: The original “King Kong” – with the preshow festivities intriguingly themed “Save Barbie.” Full movie list on the Movies on the Wall website.

    That was so fun but it was JUST WAY TOO LOUD!!! Even way in the back–didn’t need to be so loud. I saw that many people up close had to keep fingers in their ears. If the speakers could be placed around the crowd to ensure everyone gets volume, it could be at a safe and ENJOYABLE level for everyone. Thank you to everyone who made this wonderful event possible. I look forward to many more.

    We were working on a new speaker set-up which worked well for the test run but with that many people we know now we need to reposition them. We had more people sitting up front close to the speaker than we’ve had in the past too. Sorry about that, we’ll have it figured out by King Kong next Saturday.
