At long last, we can plan our Mondays for the rest of the summer—the lineup for Washington's beloved free film series, Screen on the Green, has been released.
The roster kicks off with the Richard Dreyfuss classic Close Encounters of the Third Kind on July 20. Subsequent screenings are as follows:
• July 27: Dog Day Afternoon, starring Al Pacino
• August 3: On the Waterfront, starring Marlon Brando and Karl Malden
• August 10: Rebel Without a Cause, starring Natalie Wood and James Dean
The films, which are screened on the Mall between Fourth and Seventh streets, start at sunset around 8:30. Remember to bring a blanket or low chair. Oh, and bring bug spray—lots of bug spray.
