The season returns with BAMkids Movie Matinee Series, the popular Sunday afternoon movie collection curated by BAMcinématek. The series begins on Oct. 9 with the classic film, “Popeye,” starring Robin Williams, followed by a selection of other beloved family films like, “The Cameraman,” the enchanting Miyazaki fairytale, “My Neighbor Totoro,” and the witty charm of “Chicken Run,” and “The Muppet Movie.”
Beginning Oct. 22, the BAMkids Music Series returns this year with four artists with a morning and afternoon concert for each performance.
This season’s line-up includes the Persian shadow puppetry performance of Zahhak: Legend of the Serpent King, the fusion of poetry and salsa music of Flaco Navaja, the return of world-renowned clarinet player and music educator Oran Etkin, and the hip-hop and soul dance party of Soul Inscribed.
Also, BAM will host its annual free community Halloween celebration “BAMboo!” in its 15th year featuring treats, games, and a costume contest.
The winter/spring programming kicks off in January with the 19th annual BAMkids Film Festival featuring a line-up of shorts and features presented along with Northwest Film Forum and TIFF Kids International Film Festival.
The season also includes Teknopolis — a new interactive, multi-space digital art showcase in the Fisher building from Feb. 25 to Mar 12. In addition, BAM’s poetry celebration returns with Poetry 2017: Word.Sound.Power, which explores the range of spoken word and hip hop.
