Looking Back at Skyway Outdoor Cinema 2015

  Skyway Outdoor Cinema

Now that we’ve had well over a month to recover from this year’s Skyway Outdoor Cinema season, we’d like to look back on our top 10 moments from SOC 2015.

Without further ado, and in no particular order:

  1. Getting to wear some silly costumes well before Halloween

  2. Remembering how great Ghostbusters is

  3. Seeing how many people packed in at Guardians of the Galaxy

  4. Getting absolutely schooled at movie trivia

  5. Goofing around with Sparky the Fire Dog

  6. When Paisley the Clown twisted cool Seahawks balloon hats for everyone

    We think that’s a pretty good trade-off for missing part of the game. (Photo: Ben Fischer)
  7. When rain couldn’t stop us from having fun

    It may have been a little wet, but the clouds parted JUST in time for the movie. Does that mean we have special powers? Or maybe you guys just crossed your fingers really hard. (Photo: Alex Garland)
  8. Eating fresh tortas from Luchador Taco Co.

  9. Losing our minds over how delicious Full Tilt Ice Cream is

    Did you figure out what your fave flavor is yet? No, not Flavor Flav. Fave Flav. Did you try the orange cream one?? (Photo: Jordan Nicholson)
  10. All of that sweet free stuff

    What free stuff? How about: raffle tickets (and prizes), scoops of Full Tilt Ice Cream, taco meals from Luchador Taco Co., bags of popcorn, dozens of Woodland Park Zoo passes and one hundred Slurpees. (Photo: Mary Goebel)
