Watching movies under the stars is a time-honored American tradition ever since the drive-in movie was first created decades ago. Before the weather starts to get too chilly, Lamont Park will be holding a special Movies in the Park in Washington DC on each of the next two Fridays in a row (September 21 & 28, 2012). And you get to help choose what will be shown!
This year's theme is 80's cult classics. Mt. Pleasant Main Street is letting its guests decide the movie for the evening. All you have to do is go to the MPMS Facebook page and vote. Tomorrow's selection ('The Princess Bride') has already been determined. But you can still vote for next week's screening.
Washington DC's Movies in the Park Selections:
Raiders of the Lost Arc
This is Spinal Tap
The Princess Bride
Ferris Buerler's Day Off
The Breakfast Club
Back to the Future
Each Friday, the selected featured presentation will begin just after sunset, typically around 7:30pm. If it rains, however, the screening will be moved to Sunday at 7:15pm. A short local documentary from Hear Mount Pleasant, 'Into the Lime Lite', will also be shown during the evening. Lamont Park is located at 3213 Mount Pleasant St. Admission is absolutely free. Just make sure to bring a chair and/or blanket to watch the movie in comfort. If you bring a chair, please be considerate of others and sit towards the back so as not to impede anyone else's viewing.
Bring the family to see 'The Princess Bride' this Friday in Lamont Park for Movies in the Park in Washington DC. If you don't have the opportunity to attend this weekend, they will be holding another screening next weekend. You can still vote for what will be shown then on the Mt. Pleasant Main Street Facebook page. Enjoy an 80's cult classic with the family for free!
