Women in Film
September 6th sees the relocation of the Women in Film (WIF) “First Tuesday” gathering, which will move to the iconic Belltown Rendezvous Lounge. To kick off the new space, WIF helps to kick off the web launch of SmartGirls’ Way, an organization dedicated to encouraging, enabling and empowering women entrepreneurs. The First Tuesday will also include a talk by WIF staff about their upcoming 6-week Adobe After Effects workshop, launching September 12th. Finally, on September 24th, the Manhattan Short Film Festival settles into West Seattle’s Admiral Theater. Ten short films were chosen by professional producers, directors, and actors and the screening audience at the Admiral Theater will choose the ultimate winner.

The Admiral Theater in West Seattle invites you to help choose their free holiday movie! Last year, the theater showed perennial favorite A Christmas Story and this year would like to show something you can’t see on TV (i.e. It’s a Wonderful Life). Maybe it’s a charming foreign Christmas film or maybe it’s Naughty Santa. Email or fill out a slip and put it in the Christmas box at the theater and let them know what you’d like to see on the big screen. Admission is free, but food bank donations are suggested. The film will be announced the first week of December and the screening will be Saturday, December 19 at noon.

Madison Middle School student Bazel Rivera, will be in the Admiral Theater spotlight this Saturday night as a student of a different school – the Paul Green School of Rock Music. They’re presenting a salute to The Monkees – the TV rockers whose heyday was so long ago, some of the 8-to-18-year-olds heard about it from their grandparents. Bazel is 14 years old and has only been playing guitar for about a year; as part of the School of Rock Music program (which has its Seattle HQ in Lake City), he and his fellow young musicians have been touring, performing at other venues around the city as well as elsewhere (when we dropped by The Admiral to interview him last weekend, he and his family were about to head to Portland for a performance). He’s pumped about playing his hometown venue, and Admiral entertainment director Dinah Brein McClellan is excited too – she was a big Monkees fan as a little girl.
