Star Wars on Beacon Hill

While not technically billed as a “bike-in” movie, the Jefferson Community Center is screening Star Wars outdoors at Jefferson Park at dusk (around 8:30ish). Say—isn’t that at the center point of Beacon Hill’s planned neighborhood greenway? It sure is!

Somebody should plan a bike ride to the movie. Do you want to be that person? Just leave a comment below telling people where and when to meet and whether you’re going with a Rebel or Imperial theme…

Bike-In Movie at the Acropolis

Acropolis, a community house in Capitol Hill, is hosting an intimate gathering of bikes and friends on August 24, 2012 at 8:00 p.m. to watch the movie Clue outdoors in our lovely backyard before they build new condos in there this fall.

Bring your snacks, drinks, and bikes for a fun and intimate outdoor movie event. We will also be selling some delicious homemade kettle corn (at an affordable price of course)! We’d love to have you join us, and bring your friends.

To RSVP, get information about location, or ask any other questions, please email Catherine at catherineblakesmith@gmail.com. And click here to watch the movie trailer.
