The Art Of Our City: Summer Blockbusters

Marcie Sillman
05/21/2012 at 8:00 p.m.

Memorial Day weekend marks the unofficial start of the summer season. And with summer come blockbusters: movies, art shows, musical theater and more.

This year, Seattle Center is home to a bevy of blockbusters: the last North American stop for the big King Tut show, the new Chihuly Garden and Glass exhibition, and at Seattle Opera, Puccini's last composition, "Turandot." What is it about the blockbuster that attracts us to them? Tonight, KUOW's Marcie Sillman explores some of this summer's offerings, and the psychology behind them.
