Miami Connection at the 7th Street Theatre – A benefit for Harbor Rescue @ 7th Street Theatre
Sep 5 @ 7:00 pm
Miami Connection at the 7th Street Theatre - A benefit for Harbor Rescue @ 7th Street Theatre | Hoquiam | Washington | United States

Come out to see cult classic and rarity Miami Connection (1987) at the historic 7th Street Theatre! All proceeds for this showing benefit the local animal rescue Harbor Rescue – “saving people, one dog at a time”!

We worked hard to get a super fun, cult-following film! Don’t miss out on a one-time event! We will also be featuring food and raffle items from local businesses such as Passport Cafe and Rediviva. This isn’t just a movie, it’s a fun community event and it’s all for a good cause – helping Harbor Rescue with abandonment and neglect cases and making life better for all citizens of Grays Harbor – four-legged and two-legged.

“The year is 1987. Motorcycle ninjas tighten their grip on Florida’s narcotics trade, viciously annihilating anyone who dares move in on their turf. Multi-national martial arts rock band Dragon Sound have had enough, and embark on a roundhouse wreck-wave of crime-crushing justice. When not chasing beach bunnies or performing their hit song “Against the Ninja,” Mark (taekwondo master/inspirational speaker Y.K. Kim) and the boys are kicking and chopping at the drug world’s smelliest underbelly. It’ll take every ounce of their blood and courage, but Dragon Sound can’t stop until they’ve completely destroyed the dealers, the drunk bikers, the kill-crazy ninjas, the middle-aged thugs, the “stupid cocaine”…and the entire MIAMI CONNECTION!”

The film is not rated. It features drug references, brief nudity, and martial arts violence.

Film: “This Changes Everything” @ 7th Street Theatre
Apr 26 @ 7:00 pm
Film: "This Changes Everything" @ 7th Street Theatre | Hoquiam | Washington | United States

Free admission, donations to cover screening costs and expenses kindly accepted.
Join us to watch this timely movie about the most important issue of our times: climate change.

The film “This Changes Everything” is an epic attempt to re-imagine the vast challenge of climate change. Inspired by Naomi Klein’s international non-fiction bestseller of the same name, the film presents seven powerful portraits of communities on the front lines. Throughout the film, Klein builds to her most controversial and exciting idea: that we can seize the existential crisis of climate change to transform our failed economic system into something radically better. This event is in support of a positive outcome from the work done at COP21, and bringing meaningful awareness to what we can all do now to build a carbon-free future for ourselves and our children.

Family Film: Iron Giant @ 7th Street Theatre
Mar 24 @ 7:30 pm

“The Iron Giant” is one of those rare animated features that offers plenty of fun and action to keep the kids entertained, wrapped around engaging characters and a story with a strong message.

Made in 1999, and based on a story by the British poet laureate Ted Hughes, the film takes place at the height of the Cold War and Sputnik-inspired anxieties and is loaded with period references to alarm over the Soviet threat and grade-B sci-fi and monster movies of the era.

The “iron giant” is a robot that drops from the sky and frightens a small town, setting off an overly zealous government agent. With the unlikely friendship of a lonely boy, the robot learns about humans and ultimately the duo helps the townspeople overcome their prejudices and fears.

Advance tickets are available at Harbor Drug and Crown Drug in Hoquiam, City Drug in Aberdeen and at the website, www.7thstreettheatre.com.

Welcome to Ocean Shores Sign Dedication & Kick-Off 50th Anniversary Celebration @ Ocean Shores City Enterance

Welcome to Ocean Shores Sign Dedication & Kick-Off 50th Anniversary Celebration @ Ocean Shores City Enterance

On November 3, 1970 by special election and signed off by former Washington Secretary of State Ludlow Kramer, the community of Ocean Shores became a certified city. As such, 2020 marks the 50th anniversary of Ocean Shores’ cityhood.

Anniversary events will begin with a kick-off celebration recognizing the Welcome to Ocean Shores sign, erected 20 years ago at the city gates, as a significant historical feature.

Hosting this event, the Museum of the North Beach and Ocean Shores Coastal Interpretive Center with missions to preserve and share area history have joined forces to erect an informational plaque explaining that artist Judy McVay created the sign. The Mayor and City Council are expected to attend.

Judy McVay along with her brothers pioneered chainsaw carving as an artform, founded the chainsaw carving expo at the Puyallup Fair in the 1980’s, were instrumental in creating local carving events, and Judy was the first Washington woman to win a chainsaw carving competition. In addition to creating the Welcome to Ocean Shores sign, her work can be seen all along the Washington Coast, the Pacific Coast Scenic Byway (Hwy 101) and many other locations.

In Ocean Shores, Judy’s work can be viewed at Moby Dick’s on Point Brown Ave. where her “Sand Castle” sign hangs as well as inside the Convention Center vestibule where collaborative pieces created by Judy and her son, Boaz Backus can be found. Boaz along with brother, Steve founded the “sawdust” portion of Ocean Shores’ famed Sand and Sawdust Festival.

“The Welcome to Ocean Shores sign is a highly photographed, significant part of the experience when entering the city and should be recognized as such,” said Coastal Interpretive Center Board President, Nancy Eldridge. “The Museum of the North Beach and our friends at the Coastal Interpretive Center are proud to recognize this historical artifact,” added Museum of the North Beach Executive Director, Kelly Calhoun.

Sign dedication will commence at noon, Saturday January 18, 2020 at the city gates. A historical marker will be placed near the sign and this event will officially kick-off the year long Ocean Shores 50th anniversary celebration. Everyone is encouraged and invited to attend!
