Redhook Brewery

Summer in Seattle has arrived and venues around the Puget Sound are complementing the weather. Grab some chairs, blankets, snacks, family and friends to hit the nearest starlit theater near you.

Most venues are family-friendly, but the Redhook Brewery's Summer Cinema and Fremont's Outdoor Cinema host a few 21 and older showings for their R-rated flicks. Some events are free while others require donations or admission payments. All shows start at dusk.

Take a look at ten featured venues around the Puget Sound:

It's a strong year for independent films – and for indie movies from the Pacific Northwest.  Four feature films that were shot in the Seattle area have been selected to screen at the Sundance Film Festival in January. 

"The Details" is a dark comedy  shot in Kirkland with a cast including star actors Laura Linney, Elizabeth Banks and Tobey McGuire.  It's in the line-up for the high-profile "Premieres" series.
