Things to See: Moviemaking in Seattle

Seattle’s Museum of History and Industry, MOHAI, reopened late December in its new location at South Lake Union. It is now conveniently nestled next to the Center for Wooden Boats, close to Dukes and all the other restaurants near the Lake Union docks. The exhibit I want to see first is “Celluloid Seattle: A City at the Movies” Did you know that “Tugboat Annie” was set in Seattle? Everyone knows about Elvis at the World’s Fair in 1962, but have you see the Slender Thread with Ann Bancroft and Sidney Poitier from 1965? It shows sites from the Science Center, docks and even the Swedish Club in Ballard.

Here is a list of Movies filmed in or set in Seattle, according to imdb. But I noticed that the listmaker left off Twice in a Lifetime, with Gene Hackman, Ann-Margret and Ellen Burstyn so I wonder what other films didn’t make it either. If you think of any made in or set in Seattle that aren’t here, let me know. OK? I’ll pass them along to imdb.
