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.
The art of evolving old films into brand-new, living and breathing shows has been crafted through 12 years of extemporization experience under Jet City Improv's hilarious belt. Twisted Flicks' talented ensemble will share the rewarding laughs that come from spearing antiquated movies through the belly. You'll take part in a communal audience experience on a larger scale than the dorm-room bunny toss of college years past.
Before diving into the school's practice pool, divers learn the basics of breathing through a regulator, clearing water from a mask, and adjusting the pressure buildup during descents. After that, swimmers will become underwater explorers. Learn to dive under the watchful supervision of an experienced, PADI-certified instructor. Craig Gillespie is a pro diver with webbed feet for toes and gills for eyes. He has logged more than 30 years of dives, during which time tens of thousands of would-be flounders were taught the ways of scuba diving.
