Tonight, in a few short hours, will be the final Screen on the Green for the summer. Tonight’s film is Bonnie and Clyde. Media Services has this classic on DVD and we also have a Blu-ray version. See Screen on the Green details below:

What It’s About:
Meet Clyde Barrow and Bonnie Parker. They rob banks. Explosive (if romanticized) crime drama, set during the Depression, follows the Barrow gang’s crime sprees from Kansas to Texas. Faye Dunaway and Warren Beatty were blessed with their juiciest roles yet, but Oscars went to the cinematography and to supporting actress Estelle Parsons. A career launcher for Parsons, it also showcased another newcomer, Gene Wilder. Director Arthur Penn made his markwith one of the most influential movies of the 1960’s and that legendary climax became the stuff of cinematic lore. (Warnder Bros., 1967) 111 Min.

Where:
The screen is located off of Constitution Avenue, between 4th & 7th Streets.

When:
Tonight at sunset (around 8pm). The movie will play unless there are extreme weather conditions. For weather updates call: 877.262.5866

Nearest Subway Stop:
The Smithsonian stop (blue/orange line)

What to Bring:
Blankets, snacks, beverages, umbrellas, bug spray, warm clothes. You can pack snacks and non-alcoholic drinks for a picnic vibe.

What Not to Bring:
weapons, drugs, alcohol, and tall chairs are among the forbidden items.
