From a press release:

The Golden Triangle Business Improvement District (BID) will offer a series of outdoor movies this summer in partnership with The Heurich House Museum. The “Golden Cinema Series” will be shown in the courtyard of the Heurich House Museum on Fridays, June 7- July 12. All films are free and open to the public. Gates to the Heurich House Museum courtyard will open at 8 p.m. and the movies will start at sunset.

Films selected for the “Golden Cinema Series” were produced during the ‘Golden Age of Hollywood,’ including three films from the 1940’s and two films from the 1950’s. The five features are: Casablanca on June 7, Rear Window on June 14, Some Like It Hot on June 28, Yankee Doodle Dandy to be shown on July 5 in honor of the Independence Day weekend, and, The Philadelphia Story on July 12. Iconic personalities from Hollywood, including Ingrid Bergman, Humphrey Bogart, Marilyn Monroe, Katherine Hepburn and Cary Grant, star in the movies.

Guests are encouraged to bring a blanket, and to make a night of the “Golden Cinema Series” in the garden of one of D.C.’s finest Victorian-era homes.

The Heurich House Museum is located at 1307 New Hampshire Avenue NW in Washington, D.C., south of Dupont Circle and a block from the south entrance of the Dupont Circle Metro station. The gates to the courtyard are located on Sunderland Place NW.

  • This sounds awesome. The museum is really great.

    Am I the only one that associates “Golden Triangle” with the drug-producing region that straddles Burma, Laos, and Thailand? I find that label extremely ironic.

    • ^^ Second that. I wish this forum had a Like button, specifically for that observation.

    • You’re not the only one. I too have thought that is an exceedingly odd name.

      Maybe it’s because our Golden Triangle peddles influence instead of narcotics.

    • I laugh out loud everytime i see the word

  • A couple of years ago, someone (maybe a PoP reader?!) made a public google calendar with all of the outdoor movies. It was super useful – anyone know if there’s anything out there this year?

    Glad to see another outdoor movie venue added, especially one not ringed by super busy roads or train lines!

  • I swear that every summer, outdoor movie line-up features the same films. I realize that they choose classics to draw a diverse audience, but I’m pretty sure every one of these has been shown on the Mall, and recently.
