An annual summer tradition kicks off this Saturday, July 29th – Seattle Center’s Movies at the Mural. The free movies are displayed on a 40 foot screen at the Mural Amphitheatre, so get your blankets and low-backed chairs and grab a spot on the lawn for family-friendly movies under the Space Needle. Movies start at 9pm.
Here’s this year’s line-up – plus, a short film created by Cornish College of the Arts students will precede each movie:

This Movies at the Mural popular staple comes complete with all the fencing, chasing, escapes, silly accents and rodents of unusual size you’d expect.
