Movies Under the Stars with Screen on the Green

Summertime, and the outdoor movie watching is easy. Screen on the Green and the Comcast Outdoor Film Festival have released the schedules for their popular events. Never been? Screen on the Green features classic films on the National Mall between 4th and 7th Streets, while the Comcast Film Festival show more modern flicks on the lawn at Strathmore in Bethesda during the month of August. Plan ahead for a night with a bottle of wine and one of your favorite films (for free!); I've posted the schedules below. Screen on the Green films start showing at dusk (8:30 or 9, but moviegoers start staking out spots far earlier) and Comcast movies start at 8:30, with gates opening at 6:30.
