It Happened On The Way to the World Fair
7.00PM film start - It Happened On The Way to the World Fair (US, 1992, 121mins) Join us at SIFF Egyptian Theater in Capitol Hill In this special presentation of Elvis’ film foray to Seattle, the hip-shaking hound dog plays a crop dusting crooner named Mike Edwards. Mike finds himself a pilot without a plane after his gambling-crazed crony Danny loses it in a bet. In order to get enough money to get back their plane and get back on their feet, the two hitch a ride with a local apple farmer to the big city, where the World’s Fair is in full swing and an uncharacteristically sunny Seattle is blossoming into a veritable Metrocolor metropolis. As you would expect, Elvis leaves a handful of hearts spinning in his wake, but the film’s unusual leading lady is seven-year old Sue-Lin, the aforementioned apple farmer’s granddaughter. In a head-scratching judgment call by her grandpa, Sue-Lin’s care at the fair is entrusted entirely to Elvis, providing a convenient sidekick, scapegoat, and sentimental anchor for the film. Shenanigans and swingin’ songs are the stock-in-trade of this MGM musical, and Seattleites will thrill to the sight of a spotless Seattle Center and majestic monorail when the King shakes up the Queen City in It Happened at the World’s Fair!

What we're about

Movies bring people together. Beer brings people together. Why aren't the two connected more often? This group is for people who love watching movies and talking about movies (specifically the one they've just seen). So how this works is we all see a movie together and follow up the screening at a local establishment with a pint (or some other libation if you so choose). Films will range from indy gems, festival favorites, campy classics and good ol' summer blockbusters. So come enjoy the movies with some fellow film enthusiasts and maybe meet some new friends!
