Maury Island Incident (Movie Poster)

By Scott Schaefer

A week from tonight – Monday, April 1, starting at 7 p.m. – you can experience a ‘Close Encounter of the Burien Kind’ at a crazy ‘UFO Crash Event’ April Fool’s stunt that will be definitely worth attending!

     The event – meant to promote the upcoming filming of “The Maury Island Incident” – will take place in Olde Burien at the intersection of SW 152nd and 10th Ave SW (map below), and will feature a staged 3-D UFO crash, a Flash Mob dance, and an after-party at the Tin Room where $500 in prizes will be awarded for Best Man in Black, Woman in Black and Best Alien costumes!

Produced by Renatta Emerson Events, the evening will also include Drink & Food Specials at the Tin Room, along with a fun Photo Booth. . . .

. . . “The Maury Island Incident” will be a short film based on the true story of a man’s UFO sighting claim near Maury Island on June 21, 1947. This often-overlooked incident happened just two days before Ken Arnold’s Mount Rainier sighting, which spawned the phrase “flying saucers,” and 16 days before the infamous Roswell crash. It also included what is considered by many experts to be the first “Men in Black” encounter. Filming is set to begin in June.

Of the film, Writer/Producer Steve Edmiston says “This is a tragic story of what happens when you choose to tell the world something they won’t believe.” . . .
