The Dinner Detective eschews campy costumes and plots for an exciting evening of food-accompanied mystery and paranoia, where actors hide among the diners, playing innocent and making everyone a potential suspect. To solve the crime, guests freely interrogate one another, chivvying out clues about the murderer and determining who has a bloodthirsty look in their eyes. Between dramatic deaths and simulated police involvement, guests dig into three-course meals, washed down with bottomless iced tea, coffee, and drinks from the cash bar. The diner who comes closest to solving the mystery through their snooping goes home with a prize basket to show off to their friends or split with the murderer as per their shadowy conspiracy. Prop guns and gunshot sound effects may be used during the performance.

Built in 1925, converted into a movie house in 1968 and added to the expanding Landmark Theatre chain in 1979, the two-screen Harvard Exit Theatre sits at the north edge of Capitol Hill’s business district. Offering a lobby that feels more like a living room, complete with fireplace, piano and comfortable sofas and chairs, the Harvard Exit is almost as eye-catching as the cinema it shows. It screens a range of movie offerings, from popular independent and foreign-language films to more obscure festival fare. Keeping up with the times, the theater has upgraded its facilities to include both digital projection and sound, and often plays host to screenings for both the annual Seattle International Film Festival and the Lesbian and Gay Film Festival.

Celebrities take the stage at Julia's Restaurant. Sort of. As the show's name?Le Faux?suggests, they're actually celebrity impersonators, often in drag. It can be hard to distinguish the fake from the real, though, as the performers belt out hits from the likes of Celine Dion, Lady Gaga, and P!nk. All the while, they sport costumes so elaborate that they could almost count as the performers' costars?show outfits often feature pink bouffant wigs, bustiers, and fake eyelashes luxurious enough to hang Christmas ornaments in.
