Summer in the Pacific Northwest is an ideal time to catch a movie under the stars.
Thanks to and , families enjoyed free open-air movies all summer long. But with summer coming to an end, so must the summer movie programs.
Renton's Moonlight Movie program wrapped up last weekend with the showing of "Hugo" at the Cascade Vista Athletic Club (CVAC) Field. The movies provide inexpensive family entertainment and are a great way for kids to reconnect with friends and teammates, wrote Renton resident Richard Bray in an email to Patch:
The CVAC allowed the movie to be shown on their field. They opened their baseball concession stand to sell refreshments and goodies at very reasonable prices. And their board president Robert Ryan and wife Christen Ryan (who were celebrating their 16th anniversary last night) were there to welcome attendees and help at the concession stand. Kyle Anderson, V.P. of the CVAC board, was also helping as well--as were kids from both the Ryan and Anderson families.
For Michael, it was the first time back to the CVAC field since June when his Bronco Athletics team were awarded trophies for coming in first place in their league (story appeared in Patch). He enjoyed seeing the movie and reuniting with teammates Carson Anderson and Bailey Ryan. These summer outdoor movies are fun, frugal and a great social time for all.
Your last chance to catch an outdoor movie is tonight, Friday, August 24 at 8 p.m. at 12702 Renton Ave S, Seattle, WA (Skyway).
