Ragtag Cinema has altered its Saturday schedule because of the MU Homecoming Parade and downtown road closures.

The screening of  Seattle Children’s Film Festival Shorts, “What a Wonderful World,” has moved from Saturday afternoon to 12:30 p.m. and 2 p.m. Wednesday. The movie will also be shown again at 1 p.m. Sunday.  Tickets can be purchased for $5 per person.

The MU Homecoming Parade will be pushed back to noon Saturday because ESPN GameDay will be held at the MU Quad that morning, according to The District blog.

The parade will last until about 2 p.m.

Parking will be restricted on 6th Street, from Broadway to Elm Street, and on 9th Street, from University Avenue to Broadway. Broadway, however, will be open for parking. Parking will be available after vehicle and pedestrian traffic from the parade subsides.

Swank Boutique will reopen Wednesday at a new location, 913 E. Broadway, just three doors down the street from its original spot on the street.

“The space has a lot more character,” said store owner Erin Keltner.

She said the move also allows for better customer service.

“The space allowed us to customize the way our store is laid out,” Keltner said. “After five years, we’re tuned into what our customers want.”

The new location also has more space than its current location at 921 E. Broadway. The store will have three dressing rooms and a men’s section, both of which were unavailable at the old location.

Swank Boutique sells original styles and brands of clothing and accessories, Keltner said.
