Outdoor Movies At Magnuson Park Start Tomorrow Through August

Outdoor movies at Magnuson Park (7400 Sand Point Way) start tomorrow and run weekly on Thursday evenings through August.

The cost per person is $5 and the event starts at 7pm with trivia, games including a "cornhole challenge," photobooth, and prizes. Then the movie starts around 8:30pm. Popcorn, soda and other food items will be available for purchase.

The information says:

We’ll turn Seattle’s Magnuson Park into a giant outdoor movie theater.  Grab your family, friends, blankets, dogs and lawn chairs and join us for trivia contests, games, prizes and big screen movies under the stars!

The Outdoor Movies at Magnuson Park take place in a big grass field with lots of room for blankets chairs and comfortable viewing. The setting is perfect for an outdoor movie and has the luxury of space that many of other Seattle outdoor movie events don’t have.

2011 is the first season of the PEMCO Insurance Outdoor Movies at Magnuson Park.  Movies are projected onto a 40′ inflatable movie screen (bigger than most indoor theaters) that turns Magnuson Park into a spectacular outdoor cinema.   The Outdoor Movies at Magnuson Park continue a long tradition of outdoor cinema events in the Pacific Northwest including locations in Seattle, Sammamish, Bellevue, Kirkland and surrounding areas.

To get there, take the NE 65th Street entrance to the park, then take the second left and drive past the outdoor movie set-up to the parking lot on the right.
