Of the many film screenings happening around the DMV area this summer, none has a stronger pedigree and brand than the HBO- and Universal-sponsored Screen on the Green. Every Monday for the next four weeks, HBO will screen a classic film on the National Mall at sunset, around 8pm. This year’s festivities begin tonight with a crowdpleaser, E.T., The Extra-Terrestrial (HU DVD 5175). Future weeks include Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory and Tootsie.
The movie will be screened on the Mall between 7th and 12th Streets – roughly across from the Museum of Natural History. Picnicking is strongly encouraged!
