It’s going to be a West Seattle Outdoor Movies season to remember! As reported here recently, the mega-popular series of free Saturday night movies is moving at the end of this summer, so you’ll watch the first five movies in the Hotwire Online Coffeehouse (California/Genesee; WSB sponsor) courtyard as always, and then the sixth in the new Triangle Festival Street by the West Seattle YMCA (WSB sponsor), where the movies all will be shown next year. Now … this year’s lineup! Thanks for your suggestions. Drumroll … it all starts a long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away:
July 16th: “Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens” (featuring pre-show Star Wars trivia)
July 23rd – “Monty Python and The Holy Grail”
July 30th – “School of Rock”
August 6th – “Skyfall” (featuring pre-show James Bond trivia)
August 13th – “The Lego Movie”
August 20th – “Princess Bride” (first movie in the Festival Street by the Y)
(The titles are linked to the movies’ trailers.) More soon about what to expect each night – but the basics are: It’s free, though you’re encouraged to bring money for concessions and raffles benefiting local nonprofits; the movies start at dusk, which means a different start time each week. The movies are made possible not just by presenters and volunteers’ hard work but also by the support of many local businesses who sign on as sponsors, including us at WSB. See you at the movies!
