From Screen on the Green:

“It’s summertime in DC and we’re ready to kick back, relax, and enjoy the long days. What’s on our summer bucket list? Screen on the Green 2015! Thanks to HBO and Comcast NBCUniversal, SOTG is back and we love this year’s films! What do you think?

The Details

  • July 20 – North by Northwest (1959) – Join Carey Grant and Eva Marie Saint on an adventure from the United Nations in New York to Mt. Rushmore in this Alfred Hitchcock classic. Spies, suspense, and romance? Count us in!
  • July 27 – The Poseidon Adventure (1972) – This epic disaster film follows stars Gene Hackman, Leslie Nielsen, and Shelly Winters as they fight for their lives when a luxury liner capsizes while crossing the Atlantic.
  • August 3 – Desk Set (1957) – Spencer Tracy and Katharine Hepburn star in this comedy about office politics and the dawn of the computer era. Computers might be pretty effective when it comes to workplace efficiency, but not for romance!
  • August 10 – Back to the Future (1985) – What happens when a mad scientist sends a teen back to 1955? He lands in the middle of his parents’ courtship, of course! Come see Michael J. Fox and Christopher Lloyd go back to the future at SOTG.”

Ed. Note: movies are shown at sundown around 8pm between 4th and 7th Streets on the National Mall”.

Unless plans have changed drastically we’ll have to assume there was an error in “nature of operation” listed on the liquor license placard:

“Assisted living, nursing and apartment facility with a café room serving cocktails, beer and wine to dining residents. Entertainment will include occasional parties that may have some live music. Total Occupancy Load of 325. 240 total seats. Summer Garden with 40 seats.”

Suns Cinema reached their kickstarter goal back in March. Hopefully movies aren’t too far behind. Or maybe the coolest assisted living facility in the District…

From a press release:

“On Friday, June 5, 2015, Union Market – the vibrant district in Northeast DC – will bring back its wildly popular drive-in movie series. Best known for honoring themed movies, the June 2015 series will “flashback” every Friday, rolling out films that salute the ‘80s and ‘90s decades. The June line-up will feature blockbuster hits Jurassic Park, Pretty Woman, Space Jam and Beverly Hills Cop. Union Market’s June Drive-In Series is supported by Shinola, the makers of handcrafted, American-built watches, bicycles, leather goods and journals.

The classic American pastime will take place in Union Market’s spacious parking lot, projected on the two-story front wall. The fare is $10 per car, or free in the picnic area for walk-ups & bikers on a first come, first serve basis. Car passes can be purchased here, with a portion of ticket sales benefitting the Wheatley Education Campus, located in DC’s nearby Trinidad neighborhood. Patrons can either tune in through a car radio or listen over the market’s loud speakers.

The DC Rollergirls will return to this year’s series, on-hand delivering speedy snacks and drinks on wheels. All 40 Union Market vendors will remain open for service, and cinephiles craving a salty-sweet mashup will enjoy complimentary Shinola Cola and popcorn throughout the evening.

Jack tells us it’s called One Penny:

“A young boy homeless by tragic misfortune, is taken in by a poor yet loving man. Dylan, now a street-smart maverick, and confronted by the realities of his past, yearns for a better future. With the odds stacked against him, Dylan fights to bring hope to his community, and find his place in the world.”

“Something happening @madamsorgan with trucks, roadies, and a giant spotlight. @PoPville”

The Washington Post reported it’s for an Oliver Film movie about Edward Snowden starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Shailene Woodley. (Thanks to @mindymoretti for passing on.)
