Close Encounters of the Third Kind @ 7th Street Theatre
Sep 21 @ 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm

 Spielberg’s friendly aliens deliver Close Encounters at 7th Street Theatre Sept. 21-22 

Gentle, friendly aliens, Devil’s Tower, Francois Truffaut and the mother of all motherships all arrive at Grays Harbor’s historic 7th Street Theatre with showings at 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday, September 21-22 of Steven Spielberg’s “Close Encounters of the Third Kind.” 

As researchers discover and decipher phenomena that suggest an alien visitation to Earth may be imminent, ordinary family guy Roy Neary (Richard Dreyfuss) and a few fellow Hoosiers have their own UFO experiences. Roy and a single mom (Melinda Dillon) whose son has been seemingly snatched by spacemen, are left with subconscious suggestions that drive them toward their own “close encounters” in director Spielberg’s 1977 sci-fi adventure, the first of his two films featuring friendly extraterrestrials, like E.T. 

Doors open at 7:00 p.m. for the 7:30 p.m. showings. The theatre is located at 313 7th Street in downtown Hoquiam. Tickets are $6 and will be available at the door. Advance tickets are available at Harbor Drug and Crown Drug in Hoquiam, City Drug in Aberdeen and at the website, www.7thstreettheatre.com. For more information call the theatre at 360-537-7400.

Free Community Meal @ Saron Lutheran Church and First Presbyterian
Sep 26 @ 5:00 pm – 7:00 pm

We decided we wanted to provide a meal for our Grays Harbor neighbors. This is not a religious worship, but rather a free resource for the community. At Saron Lutheran and First Presbyterian, we feel our mission is to support the community and give back to those who live here. These monthly meals are one of the ways we are trying to live out this call.”

“All are welcome to attend this meal,” Associate Pastor Jeani Shofner added. “We know it can be hard to get across town to the other places hot meals are offered. We are hoping this ministry can grow to become more frequent in the future.”
