Sunset Electric and Gage Academy join in on the Capitol Hill Art Walk this Thursday along with the 30+ regulars on the monthly art walk. Highlights from this month include a show on death at Gage, flags at Rhino Room,  zoetrope animation at Northwest Film Forum, urban-fantasy-inspired art at Ltd. Gallery, camping-themed art at Gay City, and intricate organic illustrations at Ghost Gallery. More art walk info and map here.

On Saturday, the Northwest Film Forum’s 9th annual Seattle Bike-In will be even bikey-er as it screens Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s bike chase thriller Premium Rush! as well as eight bike film shorts. The Bike-In is free and starts at dusk.

Join hundreds of your closest friends on Friday for the Three Dollar Bill Cinema’s screening of Clueless at Cal Anderson Park. DJ music starts at 7pm, pre-show fun and games at 8:30, and the movie at 9. The full (remaining!) Hill summer movie schedule is here.

And for the opposite of being with hundreds of friends, try Claustrophobia, a poetry reading in the Volunteer Park water tower on Friday at 6pm.

Shakespeare plays well outdoors. Volunteer Park Amphiteater hosts Love’s Labour’s Lost on Thursday at 7pm, Othello on Friday at 7pm, and a closing triple feature on Sunday with All’s Well That Ends Well at 1pm, Othello at 3pm, and Love’s Labour’s Lost at 7pm. All performances are free.

  1. Okay, I just have to know… why do posts like these get a whole bunch of unstructured, badly-formatted stuff on the RSS entries? I always get about 15 screenfuls of tags and “author information” links to scroll through in my RSS reader. It’s not a huge deal but it’d be awesome if it weren’t the case in the first place.

    I think it might have something to do with how the calendar widget is embedded into these posts.
