Pack a picnic and blanket for movies by moonlight.
WHEN SUMMER ROLLS around and the days get warmer, we all look for ways to take our usual activities outside to enjoy the weather. Every year public parks and other venues around Seattle bring back one of our favorite seasonal traditions: outdoor screenings of movies under the stars. Some of our standbys include Seattle Center's Movies at the Mural (seattlecenter.com), where you can catch free flicks such as "Little Shop of Horrors" (8/11) and "Wonder Woman" (8/25) on a big screen beneath the Space Needle; Westlake Park's Summer Movies (seattle.gov) series, which brings "Star Wars: The Last Jedi" (8/3), "Hook" (8/17) and "Black Panther" (8/24) to the heart of downtown; and on the Eastside, Movies at Marymoor, where "Thor: Ragnarok" (8/8) and "Ferdinand" (8/15), to name but a few, come to the Redmond park's screen. Frolik Rooftop Movies Catch old faves like "Super Troopers" (8/10) and "Dodgeball" (8/24) at the Motif Seattle hotel's swank 21+ rooftop bar. destinationhotels.com/frolik-seattle Peddler Brewing This family- (and dog-) friendly Ballard brewery screens "Pitch Perfect" (8/2) "Bridesmaids" (8/30) and others in the beer garden. peddlerbrewing.com Movies at the Marina Watch "Overboard" (8/3) or "Moana" (8/17) with Puget Sound in the background at Shilshole Bay. portseattle.org For more great places to play in the city visit wheretraveler.com
