See movies under the stars and in the theater
Travel back in time to see young Tom Hanks, Meg Ryan, Tom Cruise and Harrison Ford strut their stuff in classic movie blockbusters at the Night Light Drive-in — a spot for cinema on the big screen, under the stars, on the Great Lawn of Open Space for Arts & Community. Upcoming movies include “Raiders of the Lost Ark” on Thursday, June 17 and Saturday, June 19; “Top Gun” on Thursday, June 21 and Saturday, June 26; and “Sleepless in Seattle” on Friday, June 25 and Sunday, June 27.

Welcome back musicians at ‘Welcome Home’
On June 26, Vashon Events and Open Space for Arts & Community will present two outdoor acoustic concerts featuring a slew of Vashon musicians, many of them back on stage for the first time in 15 months.
The concerts, taking place in the meadow of Open Space, will have plenty of room for music lovers to spread out and enjoy the music.
The first concert, taking place from 12 to 2 p.m., will include such island legends as John Browne, Kate Atwell, Gregg Curry, Steve Itterly and Lonesome Mike Nichols, and Chris Anderson and Steve Amsden. The second concert, from 4 to 6 p.m., will include Phil Roayl, Gus Reeves, Madeleine Wolczko, Tim Couldn’t Make It, and Danny Newcomb.

Newcomers to Vashon, theater veterans who are ready to re-engage, and longtime islanders looking for something new to do (either on stage or backstage) are all welcome. At the gathering, there will be door prizes, tickets to future shows, and lots of information on the theater group’s upcoming plans.
