Nominate a movie for Neighborhood Movie Night

Posted by Geeky Swedes on July 31st, 2010

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.

    They should play the first Tron!

  • 5 wampum // Jul 31, 2010 at 3:38 pm

    Debbie Does Dallas for the kiddies. They need to learn.

  • 6 Angela // Jul 31, 2010 at 5:37 pm

    Up!

  • 7 Alta // Jul 31, 2010 at 6:56 pm

    Invictus

  • 8 mrs murphey // Jul 31, 2010 at 7:08 pm

    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.

  • 9 Curtis // Jul 31, 2010 at 7:41 pm

    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!

  • 10 Bark More, Wag Less // Jul 31, 2010 at 8:23 pm

    A Clockwork Orange….hmmm, Ann Margaret in chocolate.

  • 11 April // Jul 31, 2010 at 9:15 pm

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

  • 12 msballard30 // Jul 31, 2010 at 9:47 pm

    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

  • 13 Charles Cooper // Jul 31, 2010 at 9:49 pm

    Adults: ‘Angel-A’
    Everybody: ‘Up!’ or ‘Monsters, Inc.’

  • 14 Adina // Jul 31, 2010 at 10:55 pm

    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.

  • 16 gts206 // Jul 31, 2010 at 11:31 pm

    +1000 Emeraldkity

    Princess Bride = best.movie.ever

  • 17 Ballardite // Aug 1, 2010 at 7:50 am

    Mary Poppins or Princess Bride are great ideas!

  • 18 Foghorn Leghorn // Aug 1, 2010 at 8:26 am

    Something with Tom Hanks. ‘The Burbs’ or ‘The Money Pit’ seem Ballardy :)

  • 19 MovieIdea... // Aug 1, 2010 at 3:46 pm

    Fantastic Mr. Fox = good for all ages…

  • 20 mrs murphey // Aug 1, 2010 at 7:08 pm

    +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.

  • 21 RP // Aug 1, 2010 at 7:38 pm

    Expiration date

  • 22 Nora Bell // Aug 1, 2010 at 7:43 pm

    ++ 1 for The Princess Bride! How could I have forgotten it?

  • 23 April // Aug 1, 2010 at 7:49 pm

    RP…Oh, I forgot about Expiration date ! That is such a great movie and filmed in Ballard and Fremont among other NW places. My family LOVES that movie and can’t help but chuckle every time we see a Smith Brothers Dairy Truck !

  • 24 Jennifer // Aug 1, 2010 at 9:23 pm

    +1 for Princess Bride!

  • 25 Ellen // Aug 2, 2010 at 7:19 am

    My vote: Up! or Princess Bride

  • 26 mrs murphey // Aug 2, 2010 at 7:53 am

    Not Up! I always cry at the beginning.

  • 27 rob3rt // Aug 2, 2010 at 5:30 pm

    “The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari”

  • 28 ElizabethElaine // Aug 2, 2010 at 9:16 pm

    I agree with RP and April: Expiration Date!

  • 29 SPG // Aug 4, 2010 at 9:15 am

    Anyone who recommends Dirty Dancing, Pretty Woman, or Ghost will be shipped off to a film re-education work camp.

  • 30 dibbleite // Aug 13, 2010 at 3:52 pm

    I vote for Ghost Busters, The Blues Brothers, or Princess Bride. NOT Mary Poppins unless you just show the chimney sweep dance sequence!
