Best Rural Movie Theatre 2010- Seattle Weekly

Vashon Island dances to its own beat. Unlike the Bainbridge, Bremerton, or even Kingston ferries, if you walk onto the one departing Fauntleroy for the southwesterly isle, you're sort of stranded. Even if you bring a bike, the hill you're confronted with at the onset of the three-mile ride to Vashon's tiny commercial strip is so daunting that you'll be thumbing it in no time. But once you make it there, it's worth it, in large part because of the Vashon Theatre. Sure, they show movies—really interesting documentaries, charming indies, The Twilight Saga: Eclipse at midnight. There's something for everyone, a sentiment amplified by the fact that the theater also hosts live music and theatrical productions—even an Oscar-night party, replete with a red carpet and snazzily dressed revelers. It's not just a great place to take in a flick; it's a community anchor, and a sure sign that the silver-screen experience can be preserved for as long as people are willing to breathe ingenuity and life into it. —Mike Seely
