The South Park Outdoor Cinema is another project of the City of Seattle’s Bridge Closure Response - an effort led by Seattle Department of Neighborhoods to help the South Park community through the impacts of the bridge closure. The Cinema is envisioned, along with other events, to build community, mark South Park as a destination, and bring more people into the business corridor. Look for more exciting events coming in August!
