In 2018, your friends at the all-volunteer nonprofit West Hill Community Association had a banner year. From successfully partnering with teens to boost voter registration and turnout to leading community cleanups, neighborhood forums and highly anticipated events like our annual Skyway Outdoor Cinema festival and Halloween party, the year just flew by.

There’s no doubt Skyway Outdoor Cinema is a rainbow explosion of utter joy, diversity, friendship, & celebration. There aren’t quite enough words to accurately describe our incredible 16th season of this beloved annual festival, but we’ll do our very best to show you.
