We are pleased to sponsor the Seattle Premiere of “The Surrounding Game” on July 31 at the Varsity Theatre, 4329 University Way NE, Seattle 98105. THE SURROUNDING GAME is a full length documentary that follows the lives of three young Americans vying to become the first-ever Western professional Go players. Visiting Japanese pro Maeda Ryo 6P, a longtime friend of U.S. Go players, will give a short introduction before the film. This will be a fundraiser for the Seattle Go Center. Ticket price is only $5 + service fee, but additional donations are welcomed…
Doors open at 7:00, with Maeda Sensei at 7:15, and the film at 7:30. Runtime is 97 minutes. Tickets can be purchased online at Eventbrite, or at the theater the night of the event. More information about the film can be found on the Surrounding Game Website.
Our program of free classes continues on Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday evenings during the months of June and July. The classes are free, and your first ten visits to the Go Center are free. If you are under 18 years old, then all your visits to the Go Center are free!
