Duwamish Revealed: Free Movie Night @ The Estuary/T-108 Park
Jul 24 @ 8:00 pm – 9:30 pm

Duwamish Revealed, a summer long series of outdoor art installations, performances, community activities presents two nights of documentary movies about the Duwamish Tribe on Jesse Card’s portable outdoor cinema. John Boylan, host of the discussion series “Conversations,” will begin the evening with a monologue based on contemporary and historical stories from along the riverbanks.

John Boylan | Duwamish Movie Night
at The Estuary/T-108 Park, 4651 Diagonal Avenue S., Seattle

Friday July 24, 8 pm: Princess Angeline, dir. Sandra Osawa, 2008, 53 minutes

Saturday July 25, 8 pm: Chief Seattle, dir. BJ Bullert, 2000, 80 minutes

Both nights will feature special appearances by the filmmakers.

On July 24th Princess Angeline will be shown. Princess Angeline, daughter of Chief Seattle, lived alone at the bottom of Pike Street and refused to leave her homeland despite the city’s ban on Native people living within the city limits. The film explores the story of the Duwamish and their still-unrecognized tribal status through the life of Princess Angeline.

On July 25th Chief Seattle will be shown. Chief Seattle brings to life the legendary Puget Sound leader who welcomed the Americans to settle on the land that now bears his name. It recounts the known facts of Seattle’s life and times, and casts a fresh light on the controversy over the famous speech attributed to him. Originally broadcast on KCTS Television, the film features interviews with Duwamish Tribe leader Cecile Hansen, historians Alexandra Harmon and David Buerge, and author Jonathan Raban.

Since his childhood, Benjamin Franklin Gates has known that he is a decendant of a long line of people whose job it has been to guard a treasure hidden by the Founding Fathers. They hid clues to its whereabouts in the country’s currency and on the back of the Declaration of Independence. Now, Ben has learned of a plot to steal the Declaration, and has only one option: he had to steal it himself. Even if he pulls off this monumental task, keeping the treasure safe is still going to be incredibly hard, especially since the FBI now knows of his plans.

The Senior Center of West Seattle is hosting a free screening of the movie “The Age of Love,” a documentary that follows the adventures of 30 seniors who sign up for a first-of-its-kind Speed Dating event exclusively for 70 to 90 year olds.

From anxious anticipation through dates that follow, it’s a comic and poignant tale of intrepid seniors who lay their hearts on the line and discover how dreams and desires change—or don’t change—from first love to the far reaches of life.

People of all ages are invited to join us on Thursday, February 9 at 2pm for this free screening. Call 206 932 4044 x1 to register. This screening is sponsored by Senior Care Coalition.

You can visit the film’s website here: http://theageoflovemovie.com/

Some praise for the film…

“THE AGE OF LOVE shows us that love is ageless. It’s a great film for older audiences as well as for college students studying relationships and for professionals working with older populations. Too often films ignore the full humanity of older men and women and forget that they can be husbands, wives and lovers. The Age of Love is a wonderful corrective to all those films that deny seniors the full range of who they are and who they can be.” Dr. Pepper Schwartz, AARP LOVE AND RELATIONSHIP AMBASSADOR

“Steven Loring does a fantastic job in taking you deep into a world that – for many of us – may never have even crossed our minds… No matter what your age, THE AGE OF LOVE is one film your will want to experience, as it shares a real story full of emotion and that will assure you, with each passing year, the longing for love and the touch of someone near never goes away.” Kathy Kaiser, WE ARE MOVIE GEEKS

“The film works so well because of the sense that Loring is determined to treat his subjects with the dignity they deserve. Contrary to what society constantly seems to tell us, growing older doesn’t mean that we cease to have the same desires as anyone else, and it’s heartening to see THE AGE OF LOVE take those desires seriously.” Adam Lubitow, THE ROCHESTER CITY NEWSPAPER

‘The Ship Sails Again’: Admiral Theater celebration
Mar 22 @ 5:00 pm – 11:00 pm

Just two years shy of 100 years old, the Historic Admiral Theater will celebrate its recent $1.7 million renovation with a unique evening saluting four key periods in the history of the art-deco, nautical-themed moviehouse.

The event on the evening of Wednesday, March 22, is called “The Ship Sails Again: Four Screens, Four Eras.” Launching the event will be an indoor ribbon-cutting (using film instead of ribbon!). Also, the long-dormant outdoor ticket booth will come alive with public office-holders and volunteers distributing keepsake postcards commemorating the evening.

On the bill for this special evening will be four programs, each representing a turning point in the theater’s history and featuring films that have played the Admiral or its predecessor, the Portola Theater (which was in the building that is the current theater’s lobby):

n ERA ONE, the Portola Theater’s opening in 1919: A slate of classic silent films: Charlie Chaplin’s war parody “Shoulder Arms” (1918), plus three shorts, Harold Lloyd’s “The Marathon” (1919) and Buster Keaton’s “One Week” (1920) and “Cops” (1922). “Shoulder Arms” played the Portola Theater in August 1927. Showtimes: 6:50 and 8:40 p.m.

n ERA TWO, the Admiral Theater’s opening on Jan. 22, 1942: The Humphrey Bogart detective story “The Maltese Falcon” (1941), which played the Admiral Theater six weeks after it opened in 1942. Showtimes: 6:30 and 8:50 p.m.

n ERA THREE, the Admiral’s twinning in spring 1973: The nostalgic comedy “American Graffiti” (1973), which played the Admiral Theater in August 1974. Showtimes: 6:40 and 9 p.m.

n ERA FOUR, the renovation of the Admiral to four screens in fall 2016: The new Disney fantasy “Beauty and the Beast” (2017), which is slated to open at the Admiral on the previous Friday, March 17. Showtimes: 6:20 and 9:10 p.m.

Tickets for each program will be regular prices: $11.50 for adults, $9.50 for children (under 13) and seniors (60+) and $10.50 military. Those purchasing a pair of tickets for an early-evening show and late-evening show will receive a complimentary bag of the Admiral’s famous popcorn.

Advance ticket purchases are encouraged because of the expected crowds that evening. Advance tickets can be purchased at the theater, 2343 California Ave. S.W., or online at farawayentertainment.com/location/admiral-theater/ (click “Buy Tickets Online” in upper right corner).

The ribbon/film-cutting ceremony will take place at about 5:30 p.m. on the stairs inside the theater lobby. Participating in the ceremony will be a pair of public officials and West Seattle residents:

n Seattle City Council member Lisa Herbold, of District 1 (West Seattle and South Park), marking the city’s role in the 1989 landmarking of the Historic Admiral Theater, resulting from a grassroots campaign led by the Southwest Seattle Historical Society.

n King County Council Chair Joe McDermott, of District 8 (West Seattle, Vashon Island and parts of downtown), who championed the 4Culture “Building for Culture” grant of $95,000 that assisted in the renovation of the Historic Admiral Theater in 2016.

Also participating in the ceremony will be representatives of Far Away Entertainment, which operates the Historic Admiral Theater, and the Southwest Seattle Historical Society.

Other participants will include West Seattle residents Maryanne Tagney and David Jones, winners of a Historic Admiral Theater package at the historical society’s 2016 Champagne Gala Brunch.

The outdoor ticket booth will be open for the distribution of keepsake postcards at 5 p.m. Working the booth in shifts will be Herbold, McDermott and volunteers from the Southwest Seattle Historical Society.

Before each screening that evening, the Southwest Seattle Historical Society will speak briefly about plans to restore the 1942 underwater murals that are now exposed on the interior walls of the outside walls of the theater. In the lobby, the historical society also will have an informational booth about the mural restoration.

Conversation & Film on Gender Discrimination @ Youngstown Cultural Arts Center
Jul 11 @ 6:00 pm

Conversation & Film on Gender Discrimination presented by Southwest Youth and Family Services in partnership with Kent Youth and Family Services. July 11, 2017 @ 6 pm at Youngstown Cultural Arts Center, 4408 Delridge Way SW.

Join SWYFS for a conversation and film on gender discrimination, July 11, 2017 @ 6 pm.

We have all seen discrimination in many forms in our lives and our communities, and discrimination based on gender occurs daily in countless situations and circumstances. While there have been significant steps forward on gender equity, there is still a desperate need for more work to be done. We would like to invite you to be a part of our discussion about gender discrimination as it exists in our community, watch a film highlighting an example from our own history and work together to create a better path through it for ourselves, our neighbors and our future generation. On Tuesday, July 11 (6pm at Youngstown Cultural Arts Center in West Seattle), students and staff from SWYFS will facilitate a discussion surrounding the film “Anita” and give you the opportunity to learn a bit more about programming at SWYFS, as well as an opportunity to support and get involved with our efforts.

This event is the first of two community conversations, in partnership with Kent Youth and Family Services. The second event will be held in Kent on August 9 and will discuss human trafficking. The registration link below will allow you to register for one or both events (free admission). A light dinner and drinks will be served. We ask you to come with an open mind and your thoughts on addressing these issues in our communities.

Thank you for your commitment to equity for all in our community. We look forward to this discussion with you.
Register for the Next Up Series on July 11 here.

‘Timothy Brock Returns to West Seattle with Music of the Silent Giants’ benefit for Admiral Theater mural restoration
Jul 25 @ 6:45 pm – 10:00 pm

Restoration of the art-deco underwater murals of West Seattle’s Historic Admiral Theater will get another boost this summer with a one-night presentation by a West Seattle native whose orchestral scores for classic movies of the pre-sound era have earned him the title of the “Silent Film Music Guru.”

The event is called “Timothy Brock Returns to West Seattle with Music of the Silent Giants.”

It will take place at 6:45 p.m. Tuesday, July 25, 2017, at the Historic Admiral Theater, 2343 California Ave. SW, sponsored by our historical society.

This exciting evening – to last more than three hours, with an intermission – will start with Timothy Brock being interviewed by his childhood friend, West Seattle’s Dave Beck, a host at KING-FM and longtime former KUOW-FM host.

Brock will reminisce with Beck about their West Seattle upbringing and discuss the fascinating process of scoring silent classics. (Brock earned the label of “Silent-Film Music Guru” from Vogue magazine in May 2016.)

Interspersed will be stills and clips from silent films that Brock has scored. Following an intermission, Brock will introduce the screening of the Charlie Chaplin feature “Modern Times,” for which Brock has restored and re-recorded the original 1936 Chaplin score.

Tickets are $20, and proceeds will go to the Historic Admiral Theater mural restoration led by the Southwest Seattle Historical Society. A VIP opportunity, to attend the presentation and visit one-on-one with Brock and Beck beforehand, will begin at 5:30 p.m. at the theater. VIP tickets are $100.

Advance ticket purchases are encouraged, as the event may sell out.
TO PURCHASE ADVANCE TICKETS, CLICK HERE.

Timothy Brock, who has long lived in Bologna, Italy, is internationally renowned for his orchestral scores for the movies of Charlie Chaplin and Buster Keaton and many other silent film classics. Over 30 years, he has composed 27 original scores for silent films, and he has served as the film restorer for the Chaplin estate since 1998. Brock also conducts symphonies in live performances of his scores to accompany presentations of silent films all over the world.

This month Brock is making a rare return to his boyhood community, where, as a 10-year-old in the early 1970s, he watched organ-accompanied silent films at West Seattle’s beloved Granada Theater south of The Junction and drew the initial inspiration for his career, which he labels a “lifelong dream.” (The Granada was razed in 1977.)

Brock’s mother is Berlena Brock, former board member of our historical society.
TO PURCHASE ADVANCE TICKETS, CLICK HERE.

This unique presentation on July 25 will be the second event this summer to benefit the historical society’s fund to restore the auditorium murals of the Historic Admiral Theater. The first event, a screening of the local documentary “Legends of the Road,” drew 200 people to the theater and raised more than $5,000 for the fund.

The murals date to 1942, when the Portola Theater was converted and expanded to the Admiral Theater. They were covered by curtains when the theater was twinned in 1973 and uncovered as part of the theater’s recent renovation to four screens.

The Historic Admiral Theater became an official Seattle landmark in 1989, following a campaign led by the Southwest Seattle Historical Society.

‘Rooted in Peace’ @ Admiral Theater
Oct 2 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

On Monday, October 2, the Admiral Theater celebrates the International Day of Peace by screening ROOTED in PEACE – a globally transformative, socially-conscious, environmentally-based film. Award-winning filmmaker and environmental activist Greg Reitman shares his journey of self-analysis with audiences seeking inner peace in a world full of people dominated by war, affected by global warming or haunted by inner conflict.

The film follows him as he speaks to thought leaders around the world having conversations around sustainable development, discussing the challenges of our never-ending wars, and facing the realities of uncertainty placed on the world’s institutions by our current political climate. Reitman’s introspective and socially relevant documentary was most recently screened at the United Nations.

From the US to Costa Rica to India, Reitman traveled to visit such luminaries and activists as Deepak Chopra, music legends Donovan, Mike Love and Pete Seeger, film director David Lynch, Nobel Peace Laureate Mairead Maguire, Ted Turner, Archbishop Desmond Tutu and many others.

Their common ideas and examples make ROOTED in PEACE one of the most unexpectedly inspirational viewing experiences magnified by a stellar soundtrack opening with Pink Floyd’s ‘Time’ and closing with John Lennon’s ‘Love.’

Starring Pete Seeger, Deepak Chopra, Desmond Tutu
Tickets are $11.50. Groupon and passes will not be accepted.

West Seattle Meaningful Movies: ‘Dr. Strangelove’ @ Neighborhood House High Point
Jan 6 @ 6:30 pm – 9:00 pm

This year at the West Seattle Meaningful Movies, a number of neighborhood organizations are showing a movie of their choice. Here’s a chance to get to know West Seattle Neighbors for Peace and Justice!

On Saturday, January 6,
West Seattle Neighbors for Peace and Justice present

“Dr. Strangelove,” directed by Stanley Kubrick (1964) and starring Peter Sellers and George C. Scott, is a comedy ridiculing the nuclear-war plans of the United States and the Soviet Union. An insane general launches a first strike against the Soviet Union, and a President and his advisors and generals try to call the launch back. In many ways this film is too close to being an actual documentary. It eerily resembles our nuclear predicament today. Despite widespread concern about Trump’s mental stability, he remains in control of the world’s most powerful nuclear arsenal.

93 minutes

Good news! The United Nations has passed a Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons. It is the first legally binding international agreement to completely eliminate nuclear weapons. (The United States has not yet signed on.) And on December 10, the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (ICAN) won the Nobel Peace Prize–in part for its work to help pass this treaty. West Seattle Neighbors for Peace and Justice are a part of the ICAN coalition.

After the movie Lilly Adams of Washington Physicians for Social Responsibility (also part of the ICAN coalition), will share ideas for how we can move toward a nuclear-weapons-free world.

Feb 3 @ 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm

Join Hate-Free Delridge and the West Seattle Meaningful Movies for a timely showing of an important film. The movie has Spanish subtitles, and the rest of the evening will be interpreted into Spanish.

Saturday, February 3, Hate-Free Delridge and West Seattle Meaningful Movies present

Harvest of Empire
The Untold Story of Latinos in America

Based on the groundbreaking book by award-winning journalist and Democracy Now co-host, Juan González, this film reveals the direct connection between the long history of U.S. intervention in Latin America, and immigration today.

Featuring real-life stories and rare archival footage, the movie examines the events and conditions that have led millions of Latino families to leave their homelands in an unprecedented wave of migration. From wars for territorial expansion to the covert operations that imposed oppressive military regimes, it unveils a story largely unknown to most U.S. citizens.

Some graphic violence. Not recommended for children.

90 minutes; Spanish subtitles

Directed by Peter Getzels and Eduardo López, 2012

Trailer: http://harvestofempiremovie.com (in both English and Spanish)

After the film, members of Hate-Free Delridge will share ideas and facilitate a discussion about how we can support local immigrants. The discussion will be interpreted into Spanish.

‘Roadhouse’ with David Schmader @ South Park Hall
Mar 10 @ 7:00 pm – 10:00 pm

On March 10th at South Park Hall, David Schmader is lending his comedic genius to ROAD HOUSE a 1989’s uproariously macho zen-judo bouncer drama starring Patrick Swayze as a legendary badass who “lives like a loner, fights like a professional, and loves like there’s no tomorrow,” as the film’s original tagline put it. A howling tornado of punching fists, bouncing boobs, and brutally stupid dialogue, ROAD HOUSE is a perfect match for David Schmader, the Seattle-based writer and performer who’s toured the country with his critically acclaimed “annotated screening” of Paul Verhoeven’s ridiculous stripper drama Showgirls, and provided the commentary track for the best-selling Showgirls DVD. On Saturday March 10, Schmader will host a screening of the mighty ROAD HOUSE—or as Schmader calls it, “SHOWGIRLS for boys”— Join us for a night of drunken screaming at a craptastic American classic.

West Seattle Meaningful Movies: ‘Death by Design’ @ Neighborhood House High Point
Jun 2 @ 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm

Saturday, June 2
Sustainable West Seattle, and the West Seattle Meaningful Movies, presents

Death by Design
The Dirty Secret of Our Digital Addiction

Many of us use our digital devices to promote the greater good. But there is a downside to the digital revolution. This movie brings to light the environmental, economic, and social-justice failures of our favorite products.

By 2020, four billion people will own personal computers, five billion will own mobile phones, and all industries will be computerized. Are we being duped by an industry that has a death-by-design plan? Are we reaching the point where we have to decide between consumerism and sustainability?

73 minutes
Directed by Sue Williams, 2016

Aug 24 @ 7:30 pm – 10:00 pm

Roxhill Park’s First Outdoor Family Movie Night August 24th.

Join us Friday, August 24th to enjoy a free outdoor screening of the classic film Wall-E!

Critics and audiences alike consider Wall-E as one of the most beautifully animated family films in cinema history. Set in the distant future, Wall-E, a small waste-collecting robot, inadvertently embarks on a space journey that will ultimately decide the fate of mankind. Film run time is 98 mins.

Bring blankets and low chairs to the central lawn in Roxhill Park starting at 7:30 pm.
Show starts at dusk just after 8:15 pm. Children must be with an adult to watch the film.

Popcorn, sweets and bottled water will be provided to the first 100 attendees.

The film screening and refreshments are being brought to you by the community led Roxhill Park Champions in partnership with the Seattle Parks Commons Program.

Want to see more events like this in 2019 or work to make Roxhill Park cleaner and safer now? Your community makes this happen! Learn more and how to get involved at: RoxhillPark.org
