Happy Friday! I don’t usually share FREE things to do in the South Sound, I leave that to Sounds Fun Mom! But I have to tell you about a FREE movie at The Grand Cinema in Tacoma’s Theater District because my friends at Annie Wright Schools, is sponsoring this great event! Annie Wright is sponsoring a free screening of Ikkatsu: The Roadless Coast at the The Grand next week on Wednesday, February 20 at 7:00 pm. Tickets are free and available on a first-come, first-served basis on the night of the film. A question-and-answer session with the producers will follow.
Ikkatsu documents the journey of three professional kayakers as they survey the debris on the Washington coastline from the Japanese tsunamis of 2011.
The documentary is part of the Ikkatsu Project, dedicated to exploration, education and advocacy in the service of the ocean. The kayakers, Ken Campbell, Jason Goldstein and Steve Weileman, traveled with a team of scientists to the Olympic Peninsula in the summer of 2012 to explore wild shoreline to bring back data. An estimated 1.5 million tons of debris washed into the Pacific as the waters receded from the tsunamis.
Tomorrow–>Saturday morning, February 16th at 10:00 am you can take the kids to a free showing of Puss In Boots at The Grand. And read more about The Grand’s fundraising campaign here. They are raising funds to keep their doors open and accept digital films.
