Everyone loves a good crossover episode — that's why we’re bringing in some guest stars to continue supplying fresh content at MoPOP. For our Matinee Takeover, we’re teaming up with other local nonprofits to put a range of perspectives from the Seattle community onto our theater screen.
From March through June, Three Dollar Bill Cinema is in the director’s chair, showcasing the very best of queer horror shorts. MoPOP’s Sound + Vision Theater will play a lineup chosen exclusively by our partner for two screenings each day we’re open.
Take a break from wandering through our exhibitions, see something you’ve never seen before, and learn about what’s going on with our friends in Seattle. Screenings are included in your general admission ticket at no extra cost, making MoPOP Matinee Takeovers an easy and fun addition to your museum experience." (Promo Copy)
