West Seattle Junction's "Outdoor Movies on the Wall" enjoyed yet another fantastic season of open air cinema this summer. A screening of Close Encounters of the Third Kind
drew quite a crowd earlier this month, with hundreds of children and full-grown adults sporting foil alien hats... only at West Seattle. Movie-goers always enjoy fun and slightly off-kilter pre-show entertainment before the outdoor films begin each Saturday, and this screening was no different. Though clouds loomed dangerously overhead, a large crowd gathered to see the classic sci-fi film. Foil alien hats also make for good rain protection; fortunately the weather held out and they were not needed for that particular purpose. Everyone enjoyed creating their own unique hat and participating in the contest (winning hat-maker is pictured).
Other outdoor movies enjoyed this season included Pirates of the Caribbean
, and King Kong
(the old one).
