On Airport Way nearby, the line of century-old brick buildings that used to make the old Rainier Brewery now has a gap in it. Where the old brewery’s Stock House stood, bricks and wood are piled high after the century-old building was demolished in January.
Wright, an artist who organizes the neighborhood’s annual film festival, in which mostly Georgetown residents are lent Super 8 cameras to make short movies, captured the demolition as her entry this year.
Sines had the same idea when she decided to film Ed, who didn’t want his last name used. The idea is to document Georgetown now, as new developments threaten to turn the slightly run-down and industrial blue-collar neighborhood even more upscale than it has in recent years.
