Filming at the Monorail
Seattle Center Monorail was built for the 1962 Seattle World’s Fair to provide a crucial link between the fairgrounds and downtown amenities, with the capacity to carry 250 passengers per train. Following the fair it became part of the City’s transit system, and those original trains still carry approximately two million passengers every year!
The monorail has been featured in a variety of films, television shows, music videos and other forms of broadcast including It Happened at the World’s Fair, Frasier, Love Happens, Assassins, The Man in the High Castle, and Grassroots.
