West Seattle Outdoor Movies 2011: Here’s the lineup!

Thanks to everyone who took the time to suggest ideas for this summer’s West Seattle Outdoor Movies lineup. The advisory committee met today with movie mastermind Lora from Hotwire Online Coffeehouse (WSB sponsor), next to the courtyard that converts to a theater for these six Saturday nights each summer – and here’s the plan, which includes some classics:

Ferris Bueller’s Day Off [trailer above], July 16
Pee Wee’s Big Adventure, July 23
Airplane, July 30
Despicable Me, August 6
Jurassic Park (1), August 13
Toy Story 3, August 20

Plus: The call’s out for

Call out for musicians, entertainers, comedy or anyone who loves to perform in front of a crowd:

The West Seattle Outdoor Movies series starts July 16th, 2011 and runs for 6 Saturdays during the summer. We are looking for folks who can perform for an hour prior to the movies beginning at dusk. This is a nonprofit community event but we do have a stipend for each act. To be considered, please e-mail the West Seattle Outdoor Movies committee at westseattlemovies@gmail.com, or click on the link on the movie website www.wsmovies.org with a short bio, website link, MP3, or whatever you think would showcase your talent. Acts will be picked the week of May 16th and deadline is May 15th.

Keep in mind, this would be entertainment that’s harmonious with a friendly crowd gathering before the movie to stake out seats and chat – no, oh, say, death metal. See you at the movies!

    And foreign film art house fans. Put The Green Butchers on your required summer viewing list and discover what fine family entertainment truly is!

    Everything about Ferris Beuller’s Day Off makes me happy! Except realizing that it’s already 25 years old. Yiiiikes! I distinctly remember seeing that film at the Oak Tree with middle school mates…

    The discussion as to how many Rob Zombie movies could be shown this summer just never got off the ground.

    A friend of mine recently ran into Matthew Broderick on the street in NYC and related how seeing “Ferris” with gray hair made him (my friend) suddenly feel old….
