From Friends of Screen on the Green:

“Join us for the second feature film of this year’s Screen on the Green summer festival, The Poseidon Adventure, tonight on the National Mall.

A classic disaster movie with a memorable cast led by Gene Hackman, this film follows the fateful journey of the Poseidon, an ocean liner larger than the Queen Elizabeth and Queen Mary combined, on its New Year’s Eve voyage. When a tidal wave slams into the vessel and it capsizes, the survivors journey through the upside-down ship in an attempt to survive. You won’t want to miss this action adventure story!

The movie will begin at sunset on a huge 20’x40′ screen on the National Mall between 4th and 7th Streets NW – RAIN OR SHINE! We suggest you arrive early to claim your spot and bring snacks to share with friends.

Join us next Monday at sundown for Spencer Tracy and Katherine Hepburn in Desk Set. He’s an efficiency expert and she’s a marketing genius whose job is threatened by his super computer. Talk about a complicated office romance!”

If you have any animal/pet photos you’d like to share please send an email to princeofpetworth(at)gmail(dot)com with ‘Animal Fix’ in the title and say the name of your pet and your neighborhood. Your photos will go into the queue (usually 6-8 weeks wait) and will be posted in the order I receive them. If you’ve already entered your pet and would like to do so again – that’s no problem – just space the entries out a bit. Please try to send horizontal photos 640×480 (medium size on your iphone) if possible. If you’re not using an iphone any size is fine.

garden

“Dear PoPville,

Just wanted to pass along a pretty disappointing photo. The Carter G. Woodson Park was recently completed in Shaw at a cost of over $1 million. It is a beautiful space and a great addition to the neighborhood. However, after every storm, a sizable portion of the park floods due to poor drainage. Many of the new plants are already showing damage. It is a shame that the landscapers didn’t anticipate this problem. Hopefully, it can be fixed soon and the park can live on for many years as it was intended.”

Ed. Note: When I first saw one of these giant puddles in Petworth years ago, I was confused too but was told it was perfectly normal that it was just a rain garden intended to collect water like this. Isn’t this same thing?

A little bit more info for those who were looking after not seeing anything on the MPD twitter feed.

From MPD:

“The gunshots you heard most likely came from the 2300 block of 11th Street, NW. We had a shooting in that block, during which two adult males received non-life-th3eatening gunshot wounds. There were no arrests, and the case is still under investigation.”
