Seattle Outdoor Cinema

101 Westlake Avenue North
Seattle, WA 98109

For the last twenty three years, around dusk on warm Saturday summer evenings, adventurous people of all ages came  bedecked with lawn chairs, rubber boats, sofas, costumes and fun attire to join in this zany Fremont pastime. 

23 years later, the Fremont Outdoor Cinema remains Seattle's most celebrated community-spirited big screen celebration of pop classics, cult favorites, independent film, video shorts and high camp old fashioned summer fun.

Co-founded by Jon Hegeman from the Fremont Market and Charlotte Buchanan from the old Glam-O-rama, the movies are a cross between old-time matinees, cinema paradiso and the vanishing All-American drive-in. Today, it is still family-owned and operated by their son and local event producer, Ryan Reiter.

Here too, the audience is often the best part of the show. It's the original interactive theater where people are actually encouraged to join in the atmosphere of irreverent humor and laid back good times.
