7th Annual Outdoor Cinema Another Success

The Wedgwood Community Council (WCC) presented our 7th annual Outdoor Cinema on Saturday, July 11th. The family-friendly event was hosted by Principal John Miner of Thornton Creek School, located at their playfield on 77th and 43rd Ave.

The WCC, which represents approximately 3,000 homes, sponsors numerous events that bring the community together; the Outdoor Cinema is our most popular event and one which Wedgwoodians anticipate each summer. Close to 600 attendees enjoyed this year’s Outdoor Cinema which kicked off at 7:30 p.m. Attendees enjoyed hot dogs, ice cream, water and magazines courtesy of generous partner Metropolitan Market. Café Van Gogh’s italian sodas and Starbucks’ flavored iced teas quenched our thirst and baked treats from Hudson Public House and goodies from NEST were a big treat too. Man’s best friends were not forgotten as Northeast Veterinary Hospital shared doggie treats!

Fun activities including face painting and a visit from Fire Station 40 kept attendees entertained before watching “Duma”. It was a nice evening topped by a beautiful sunset and even a lightning storm in the distance throughout the night!

This year’s event included an admission of non-perishable food; attendees donated non-perishable food to support our community through Northwest Harvest. Additional donations can be brought to HomeStreet Bank.

Thanks to our dedicated platinum sponsors, HomeStreet Bank and Metropolitan Market; our silver sponsors Allstate Insurance and our bronze sponsors: Café Van Gogh, Hudson Public House, Seattle Tilth, Fiddler’s Inn, Starbucks, Brown Bros. Painting, The House, and Sandpoint Community United Methodist Church.
