The third annual NoMa Summer Screen–a free, weekly, outdoor film series–begins tonight and runs through July 28th. This year’s theme is “The Future is Now.” Bring your lawn chairs, blankets coolers and/or grab some fare at the scene–local BBQ by Smokin’ Somethin’, popcorn and Italian ice. There will also be music by Fatback.
Subtitles provided (which is a thoughtful nod to a large segment of our extended neighborhood, Gallaudet University).
Directions from Eckington/Edgewood/Brookland: Take the Metropolitan Branch Trail south to L Street stairs, turn left and walk 1 block (or south to M Street ramp, turn right and bike to 2nd Street, turn right and bike to L Street).
