Free movies this summer!

(This post was promoted from The Commons. Thanks, Melissa, for contributing to the BHB in The Commons!)

The free movie season on Beacon Hill kicks off tomorrow night with movies for the whole family.

The Toy Story series starts with Toy Story 1 outdoors at Jefferson Park starting tomorrow, Friday June 19, around dusk (8:30ish) in the bowl between the Community Center and the tennis courts.

The first anniversary celebration of Beacon Hill Meaningful Movies is also tomorrow, June 19. A free movie (Sweet Dreams), free popcorn, and excellent discussion are promised. Doors open at 6:15, and the movie starts at 7 p.m.

Please note on your calendar another film next month: Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs at Beacon Hill Branch of The Seattle Public Library on July 31. It starts at 5:30, and it’s free and open to the public. (Note: It will be shown in the Community Meeting Room as part of a food-themed movie series at our branch this summer.)

Summers on Beacon Hill: TOO MUCH FUN!

The Commons is open!

Welcome to the Commons section of the BHB. This is a place where you can submit stories to the blog — reviews, news, features, interviews, news tips — and the community can read and discuss them. Some stories may be promoted to the front page of the blog.

Stories here have to be approved to go onto the Commons — that’s because of spammers, unfortunately. Differing opinions are fine. And all posts must be related to Beacon Hill. Don’t libel, flame, insult, or otherwise be unneighborly here in the Commons.

Try it out and see! Have you had a story idea in your head? Post it! If you have questions or need to submit photos, please email me at

This is still in testing mode, so if something doesn’t work, let me know.

Thanks and enjoy!
