Fire of Love at the Vashon Theatre! 
August 5-11
Great Reviews for this love story/ Documentary.
Rated PG,    1 hour 33 min
Fire of Love tells the story of two French lovers, Katia and Maurice Krafft, who died in a volcanic explosion doing the very thing that brought them together: unraveling the mysteries of our planet, while simultaneously capturing the most explosive volcano imagery ever recorded. Along the way, they changed our understanding of the natural world, and saved tens of thousands of lives. Previously unseen hours of pristine 16-millimeter film and thousands of photographs reveal the birth of modern volcanology through an unlikely lens — the love of its two pioneers.



Classic movie: Forgetting Sarah Marshall at the Drive-in

Saturday, Aug 6, at 9:45pm!  Time change!  The Saturday Drive-in will begin at 9:45pm to accommodate an Open Space Event that will not end in time.  Sorry for the inconvenience.  Gates at 9:15pm

Struggling musician Peter Bretter (Jason Segel) is better-known as the boyfriend of TV star Sarah Marshall (Kristen Bell).

Update on our fundraising

Everyone, you did it all and even more!  Thank you all for jumping in on our crazy scheme to save the theatre by boldly going forward into new endeavors!  We have been so humbled and overwhelmed by your generosity, during a difficult time for everyone.  A couple of months ago, we couldn’t imagine that you would have hit the goal of $140,000, let alone go blazing past it!    If all goes well, we will all be enjoying the new space by early August.   Better times are on the way, because of you!  Party at the Plaza Space and unveiling of the “Walk of Fame” as soon as we can get all the work done.     Cheers to 75 years! Love, Eileen & Wolcott Family

The historic Vashon Theatre, built in 1947, is always evolving to better fit the times & needs of our islanders.  We are excited to share some new updates that we are working on!   We are so grateful for your continued support!

If you would still like to donate to the theatre, please visit our Go Fund Me Vashon Theatre “Walk of Fame” Fundraiser. Thanks to our friend, Todd Pearson, for organizing this Go Fund Me page and so much more!

More about our plans for an OUTDOOR PLAZA!
-Open-air venue in our large parking lot, a multi-faceted place that will attract people for a variety of reasons.
– Large LED video display. Day or night, movies of all kinds can be shown on this screen rather than the high-cost, first run films that will continue to be shown in the Theatre.
– Sound levels outside will be kept to a minimum, as amplified sound will only be audible to those using Bluetooth devices.
– Seating and tables will occupy a space roughly sixty feet square, half of which will be covered by a fabric roof, which will be supported by a steel structure. –
– Food and beverages will be available from the Theatre, as well as from local purveyors.
– Island artists, vendors and other providers will occupy several stand-alone kiosks around the space’s perimeter.
