Flash Mob
This Saturday, the world celebrates what would have been the 51st birthday of pop icon Michael Jackson. Following in the footsteps of Stockholm and Paris, hundreds of Seattlites will randomly appear in various places in the city center to perform popular Michael Jackson choreography in his honor. Flash mobs pop up in the middle of crowded cities, perform, and then disappear into the crowd. Warm-up and choreography will begin at Cal Anderson at 10:00am, then a dress rehearsal at 11:45am, followed by 1:00pm, 2:00pm and 3:00pm performances at secret locations in the city. The times/locations of each mob will change. Participation requires presence at the Saturday practice – the actual locations and times will be provided then. Visit the group’s facebook for more details!

Northwest Film Forum will host a special celebration of and fitting tribute to the great entertainer and popular music icon Michael Jackson who passed away on June 25th at the age of 50. His greatest music videos from the late-’70s and ’80s will be shown in the cinema (and cranked up loud). NWFF will also show excerpts of a 1968 performance of the Jackson 5, his performance in the 1978 musical “The Wiz,” the unavailable 1983 documentary “The Making Of Michael Jackson’s Thriller” and the 1983 TV performance that introduced the “moonwalk.” Refreshments will be available in the cinema, and all ages are welcome. Join us raising a glass to the one and only King of Pop, seeing Michael’s moves in action, and shaking a behind to the music that moved the world. (Seating is limited. Tickets can be purchased in advance at http://www.nwfilmforum.org and we suggest arriving early.)
