Outdoor movies are a fun way to spend a summer night. There's just something special about watching stars on the screen while under the stars in the sky. Unless it's raining, of course.

Seattle's popular "Movies at the Mural" outdoor series have announced their 2022 line-up, sponsored by Prime Video, and it seems to have benefited from their recent acquisition of MGM and it's film library.

The films are shown outdoors at Seattle Center's Mural Amphitheater, and before the main feature, a short film produced by students at Cornish College for the Arts is screened. So grab a patch of grass, because there's a lot of cool stuff going on here!

MGM Pictures' the Princess Bride
20th Century FOX's the Princess Bride

July 30 - The Princess Bride, rated PG

This is a beloved classic for many people, so get there early and enjoy the movie with like-minded fans, on a screen that isn't your TV.

Marvel Studios
Marvel Studios' Shang Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings

Aug 6 - Shang-Chi and the Legend of the 10 Rings, rated PG-13

Of the recent Marvel Movies, and with a main character I knew nothing about, Shang-Chi ranks high on my list of superhero movies.

MGM Pictures' Priscilla, Queen of the Desert.
MGM Pictures' Priscilla, Queen of the Desert.

Aug 13 - The Adventures of Priscilla Queen of the Desert, rated R.

Priscilla is a cult-classic that helped pave the way for other LGBTQ+ stories to be shared on-screen, to mainstream audiences.

Tri-Star Pictures' Labyrinth
Tri-Star Pictures' Labyrinth

Aug 20 - Labyrinth, rated PG

Jim Henson, George Lucas, David Bowie, and a young Jennifer Connelly. What else do you need to know? It's fantasy favorite.

Warner Bros. Pictures' Im the Heights
Warner Bros. Pictures' In the Heights

Aug 27 - In the Heights, rated PG-13

From the imagination, and songbook, of Lin-Manuel Miranda, comes a story of love and aspirations, from the perspective of a modern group of Dominican Republic immigrants and their children. It beat Stephen Spielberg's remake of West Side Story into theaters, and on HBO Max, and I think it's the better film, overall. The bright colors and energetic choreography are well-suited for a summer-movie-series finale.
