Thanks to Martha for passing on from the Library of Congress:

“The Library of Congress will host its fourth annual “LOC Summer Movies on the Lawn” outdoor film festival this summer, starting on July 8. The series of five movies, which showcases iconic films from the Library’s National Film Registry, will be presented on Thursday evenings at sundown between July 8 and Aug. 5 on the north lawn of the Library’s Thomas Jefferson Building, across the street from the U.S. Capitol. Attendees will be permitted to gather on the lawn beginning at 6:30 pm.

No tickets are required for these outdoor film screenings, but capacity will be limited. Vaccinated attendees are not required to wear masks, but the Library recommends that attendees wear masks when they are unable to maintain social distance. Each group of attendees will be assigned a seating location that is at least 6 feet apart from other attendee groups.

The scheduled films include:

July 8: “The Princess Bride” (2016 National Film Registry)
July 15: “Shrek” (2020 National Film Registry)
July 22: “Toy Story” (2005 National Film Registry)
July 29: “The Sound of Music” *Audience Singalong* (2001 National Film Registry)
Aug. 5: “Jurassic Park” (2018 National Film Registry)

Located between the Supreme Court and the Jefferson Building at 10 First St., SE (running the length of East Capitol Street between First and Second streets, SE), the north lawn of the Jefferson Building provides a magnificent space for people to watch films in the shadows of the U.S. Capitol Building.
