Seattle’s longest-running outdoor movie theater, the Fremont Outdoor Movies is moving in a new direction for its 21st season announcing a new 21+ movie series starting on August 3rd outdoors at Fremont Studios.
The popular outdoor movies series will be Seattle’s only true 21 + outdoor movie theater packed with three cult classic movie parties packed with pre-show entertainment with live music, food trucks, costume contests to over 800+ people supporting local non-profits in Western Washington.
Kicking off their new series, Austin’s own Alamo Drafthouse join the fun for a special screening of the popular sing-a-long version of R. Kelly’s Hip-Hopera known as “Trapped in the Closet” on August 3rd. It will be followed by Judd Apatow’s Anchorman starring Will Ferrell (Aug. 17th) and the season’s finale, The Dude Fest: The Big Lebowski Movie Party on August 24th.
Festival Director, Ryan Reiter says “We’re excited to bring a little slice of the Alamo Drafthouse magic to Seattle for an outrageously fun, interactive night out at the movies”.
Reiter has been working with Alamo’s Henri Mazza, creator of Alamo’s Action Pack and original programming to offer exciting interactive fun to their Fremont series this season for a sing-a-long that would be uniquely Fremont.
In recent years, indoor movie theaters like the Seattle’s own Cinebarre and Big Picture offer added appeal to older audiences looking for the ultimate movie experience, loaded with great food, drinks that can be for the weekend warrior or date night for adults.
Reiter touts Fremont’s long standing success as always being on the edge creatively, “We take bigger risks, not being ruled by sponsor approval, as far as outdoor movie programming, offering movie fans a place to celebrate pop culture no holds barred” says Reiter.
In the past five years, he helped return the fun back to Fremont, luring the Lebowski Fest back to Seattle (2008), as well as creating the popular Red, White & Dead Zombie Walk that received a Guinness World Record in 2009 & 2010 and continue every Fourth of July weekend.
“I think most folks love the concept of blowing the walls of the traditional movie theatre experience, it’s all about having fun at the movies again and the only theater you can scream, sing and dance at all summer long” says Jon Hegeman, co-founder of the Fremont Outdoor Movies.
Their 21st season kicks off on Saturday, July 13th with the Dumb & Dumber, followed by Superbad (July 20th), Forgetting Sarah Marshall (July 27th), Risky Business (Friday, Aug. 2nd), “Trapped in the Closet” Sing-a-long* (Aug. 3rd,) Avengers* (Aug. 10th), Anchorman* (Aug. 17th) and the season finale, The Big Lebowski *(August 24th).
