One of the largest community events in the District, Screen on the Green is back and announcing its features for the Summer 2015 season! Thanks to HBO and Comcast NBCUniversal, the free outdoor event (#SOTG2015) will continue with screenings — on a giant screen on the National Mall — on Monday evenings at sunset through August 10th.
Here’s the line-up:
- 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.
