These shiny local geek businesses welcome us every month as we play Geek Bingo. It’s just like regular Bingo, but we use geeky terms instead of numbers, so if you can play Bingo, you can play Geek Bingo. It’s only a dollar a card, and everyone who plays has a chance to win a prize. Proceeds from Geek Bingo go to charity.

Central Cinema welcomes us for two shows on July 13. Our earlier show at 2 p.m. will be family friendly (the movie is rated PG-13), and our evening presentation at 7 p.m. will be our “Special Hell” edition. Central Cinema has the ability to post text messages directly on the movie screen, and we will allow audience members in the Special Hell showing to text comments to the screen. (Text messaging charges may apply.)
We will have some local entertainers to put on shows for both screenings. Firebird’s Children will put on dazzling display of lights and dancing for our matinee, and NERDprov will make our Special Hell screening attendees laugh at their geeky improvisational style. Both screenings will include raffles and a costume contest, so put on your layer-cake dress and show it off on stage.
Central Cinema has a full restaurant. Attendees may order off their menu, which includes appetizers, full meals, desserts, and drinks.
You will be able to pick up T-shirts, lanyards, pint glasses, and more. Seating is limited, so get your tickets early. Proceeds go to Equality Now, Northwest Harvest, and Seattle Browncoats Charities to help us support other organizations throughout the year.
