Seahawks vs. Saints on 15-foot screen: Free family fun

See also

Most of Seattle is enjoying a huge case of Seahawks mania! Nobody wants to miss Saturday’s game but finding a place with a big screen that welcomes your kiddos can be difficult. Fortunately, Seattle’s downtown Central Library is offering the perfect solution: the playoff game on a 15-foot-wide projection screen. And this is one time the library will not only allow noise but will encourage it!

The Microsoft Auditorium will open at 1:00 p.m. and close at 4:30 or a half hour after the game ends. There are 275 seats in the theater with 100 more being brought in to accommodate any overflow visitors. There will be no alcohol permitted but the library will provide football-shaped cookies (a limited supply) as well as team items provided by the Seahawks such as buttons and 12th Man placards.

Parents will benefit from the closeness of the auditorium to the Library’s wonderful children’s area. Adults can spend time reading with their youngsters and still be able to keep track of the Seahawks. Older children can find a book, catch up on homework or spend time on the computer if they get restless and/or bored during the game.

This is the first time the Library has opened their doors for a football game but if (after) the Seahawks move on, they are considering to do it again for the next game and/or the Super Bowl. Go Hawks!
