Drive In To Watch 'A Most Beautiful Thing' Sept. 10 & 11
Join UW Rowing, the Windermere Foundation, and the George Pocock Rowing Foundation as they host the drive-in screening of the documentary film "A Most Beautiful Thing," this Thursday and Friday at Magnuson Park in Seattle.
The film tells the story of the first African-American high school rowing team in the country, made up of young men from Chicago. Narrated by Academy Award and Grammy-winning artist Common, the film was produced by former NBA stars Grant Hill and Dwyane Wade, among others, and directed by filmmaker and former Olympic rower Mary Mazzio.
This Thursday and Friday, Sept. 10 and 11, the film will be screened to a drive-in audience at Magnuson Park, with proceeds benefiting "A Most Beautiful Thing Inclusion Fund," to promote accessibility and inclusion at rowing programs across the United States.
Tickets are $30 per car and gates open at 7:30 p.m. each night. Showtime is 8:15 p.m.
Snacks will be sold by members of UW Rowing Teams. They will bring a wagon from car to car and will be accepting cash only. Please wear a face mask and follow social distancing guidelines (standing at least six feet apart) when outside of your car to purchase snacks or use the portable restrooms.
