As has been previously reported, the 1987 cult classic movie starring John Lithgow and Don Ameche, was filmed in Wallingford. Mike Ruby forwarded this invite for a potluck and viewing this evening:
Red Vine Theater presents
HARRY AND THE HENDERSONS
Filmed in Seattle and featuring the homes at 4214 Burke and 4210 Burke!
Bigfoot comes to Wallingford ! – to 4214 Burke Ave North to be exact – in this 1987 fantasy-comedy with John Lithgow, Don Ameche, Lanie Kazan and others when the Henderson family vehicle accidentally hits Sasquatch on the way home from a family camping trip. George Henderson brings the body home strapped to the roof of the car, only later to discover that Bigfoot, that is “Harry”, is not dead at all. Harry walks into the urban environment and one bigfoot ahead of the malintentions of a top-notch game hunter who wants to bag him. Not critically acclaimed, this film has since developed a cult-following of fans and won an Academy-Award for Best Make-Up.
Come identify our nearby Wallingford streets and homes, and watch for Harry! A map (from online) of Wallingford and Seattle locations will be available at viewing.
Bring something to share for the table, pillows, and throws for cozy comfort. RSVPs are always appreciated.
