From the organizers:

“Adams Morgan Movie Nights continues tonight [roughly 8:30pm or 1/2 hour after sunset], June 10th, at Marie Reed’s soccer field at 18th and California, NW, with All the President’s Men. It’s been 40 years since a few intrepid Post reporters (played by Dustin Hoffman and Robert Redford) helped expose the Watergate scandal that ousted a President, but the abuse of power theme of the film is as relevant as ever. It doesn’t get any more “Washington” than this political thriller that took home four Oscars and ranks in AFI’s top 100 films of all time list.

Rain date is next Tuesday the 17th and we’ll post cancellation info, should it be necessary, on AdamsMorganMovieNights.com by 4:30 pm.”

    are dogs allowed?

    • cleary

      I think the answer is no – there are “no dogs” signs up on the entrance to the soccer field (largely, I believe, because it’s turf and not real grass) so I don’t think the movie night makes an exception.

        Nope, it is because it is a school. Those signs predate the turf field. Dogs are not allowed on school property – the law is vague as to if that applies only during school hours, but MPD and School Administrators act as if it is 100% no dogs ever.

    Anyone know if there’s a rain plan? Looks like scattered thundershowers tonight.

        Oh geez, thanks. Totally failed the reading comprehension portion of this morning. Appreciate the gentleness with which you pointed out my fail.

          Some mornings are slower than others for everyone, IME.

    Anybody know their stance on discreet adult beverages? Last summer when I went to the Noma one half the crowd was sipping wine :)

  • Adams Morgan Partnership BID

    Dogs are not allowed because it is a turf field and also some dogs are friendlier than others. Plus we don’t want barking dogs distracting folks through the movie. Adult beverages are also not allowed. Thanks!
