Nominate a movie for Neighborhood Movie Night

The Whittier Heights Community Council is getting ready for the second annual Neighborhood Movie Night and organizers want help selecting a movie.

Last year’s inaugural movie night featured Wall E.

The movie night will either be held Saturday, August 7th or Friday, August 13th at Kirke Park, depending on permits, Brad Wakeman with the WHCC says. Kirke Park is the new name for the park on 9th Ave NW between NW 70th St and NW 73rd St. To nominate a movie, email brad at brad@lakere.com or leave a suggestion in comments below.

I would enjoy Buster Keaton or Chilly Willy as fun intros.
A double feature with Blade Runner and Metropolis (with the Queen Soundtrack)
The original Tron would be fun.

Maybe a series of shorts. That way people can come and go, not have to worry about being there ontime or leaving early. I know outdoor movies are popular with people…but they are with bugs too!

I agree with angela “Up!” since the house in the movie was based off of Edith Macefield’s.
Other suggestion: “Sandlot”.

They played “Up!” at the outdoor movie that was shown during the BURP event in the park in May. So perhaps something else?

1. A Fish Called Wanda
2. Dirty Dancing

Ooo I second dirty dancing!

We just moved to the neighborhood and hope that the movie will be on August 7th so that we can go!

Well- twice in a lifetime was made in Ballard ( Gene Hackman’s trailer was parked at the top of our street)- Mike’s Chili Parlor also played a starring role.
Have to admit I have never seen it. Watching a shoot is boring!

But my vote is Princess Bride or Ever After.

+1 Fantastic Mr. Fox. or some other newer release.
I watched FMF on my last flight, but didn’t listen as I had other things to do and didn’t want to cough up 3 bucks for headphones – but always wanted to see it for reals.
