Screen Shot 2014-08-11 at 2.16.27 PMNorthwest Film Forum’s bike-in movie Saturday might be the bikiest yet. With a focus on messenger-inspired films, they will be screening 2012’s Premium Rush for free in the middle of the Capitol Hill park.

In addition to the feature, they will also screen a series of bike shorts. So obviously your Saturday plans have just been set. Show starts at 8. Enjoy.

Speaking of bike-in movies, we’re pleased to report that Jesse Card’s crowdfunding campaign to build a portable bike-in movie theater reached its funding goal. So be on the lookout for more Seattle bike-in movies in coming years.

Details on the Cal Anderson event from NWFF:

Named as one of the reasons Pike/Pine belongs in the “Top 12 Art Places in America,” the Seattle Bike-In has become a staple of the summer outdoor movie calendar. Our annual event in Cal Anderson Park on Capitol Hill celebrates sustainable transportation, urban community and summer nights! Grab your bike and your friends for a free outdoor film—summer nights never felt so right to be on two wheels.

This year’s program includes a lineup of bike film shorts, plus the Joseph Gordon-Levitt bike chase thriller Premium Rush!

Premium Rush
(David Koepp, United States, 2012, 91 min)

A dashing bike messenger rogue named Wilee must fly on two wheels through Manhattan to deliver a message to Chinatown, before a dirty cop catches him!

Joseph Gordon-Levitt fixees his way through choreographed bike chases in this hilarious B-movie fueled by pure adrenaline and Tex Avery-style zaniness! If you ever dared to dream the French Connection‘s climatic show down could be paired performed with environmentally friendly vehicles, your wish has come true.
