popcornFinally!  Beginning July 7th through August 4th, on every Tuesday, Bellevue Downtown Park will host summer movie nights in Downtown Bellevue.  A new movie for each of the 5 weeks will cater to families and have a PG rating.

Admission to each show will be free.  The movies will start a dusk, around 8:30/9pm, and will be featured on a 25-foot screen.

For the last 2 years (see here and here) we’ve been making the strong suggestion that either the City of Bellevue or the Bellevue Downtown Association step up and host an outdoor  movie night series in Downtown Park.  It’s very exciting to see that the City has taken on that challenge and will be debuting the series this summer!  The movie series is co-sponsored by Intelius.

  1. Yay! I used to go when they did this a few years back! It’s great!

  2. Michael- do you know if Eclectic Theater will be back this summer for free Shakespeare? We went last summer and were only 2 of 4 audience members (it wasn’t very well publicized!).

  3. This is VERY COOL! Although my daughter is too young to stay up that late, we will definitely take advantage of this next summer!

  4. This is a great community idea. I look forward to bringing the kids!
