  • Food/drink rules?

    • It’s a DCPS/DPR field. I think you can assume that you can bring food/drinks but no alcohol.

      • Yup, Anon’s right. You’re welcome to bring snacks, but please don’t bring alcohol or glass bottles. See you there!

  • That’s great, I just wish it didn’t start so late.

  • This is awesome!

  • Great movies!

  • This is a great idea, and great choices for movies. However, if the organizers are reading this thread and are willing to accept a suggestion: maybe screen the kids’ movies that last week, after school has let out for summer. The time is fine for All the President’s Men and Rushmore, but if you’re hoping to attract families to Up/Despicable Me 2/The Incredibles, starting at 8:30 on a school night is a tough sell.

  • I guess it needs to be kid friendly, but I’m not crazy about the selection of movies. What we need is a bunch of great old 70’s crime dramas.

    • Thanks for the suggestion. We too are fans of 1970s crime dramas. Did you see that we’re screening All the President’s Men on 6/10? It’s a crime drama that was released in 1976, right up your alley.
