We’re going to let you in on a little secret… summers in the Puget Sound are pretty close to perfect. Sure, we deal with our fair share of rain the other 9 months out of the year, but our summers give us plenty of time to enjoy the gorgeous outdoors. And there is no better way to enjoy the warm Seattle summer nights than catching a movie beneath the stars. Below are some of our favorite locations, showing movies all summer long:
Now through August 23rd
The Center for Wooden Boats will feature maritime-themed films throughout the summer, all with a view of Lake Union! Bring a picnic or buy a bag of popcorn- and enjoy the show.
