The Forum says a Fond Farewell to a 15-Year-Old Awning
Originally installed in 2003 as a “temporary” solution for Northwest Film Forum’s façade, the awning that hangs outside has seen hundreds of amazing filmmakers and audiences come and go. On Tuesday morning, May 22nd, 2018, having reliably performed its sheltering duty to denizens of 12th Avenue for a decade and a half, the awning will finally ride off into the sunset. In June, a new awning design by local firm Olson Kundig will take its place.
If you’d like to post a memory about the old awning — meeting someone for the first time, finding out that a favorite director was coming to town, sharing your love for an obscure aspect of moviemaking — visit the Forum’s Facebook post announcing the marquee’s last hours. #RememberingTheMarquee
