Hey Y'all! Screen on the Green kicks of this evening and we're going to be there to see it happen. The movies are typically shown on screen on the National Mall between 7th and 12th Streets. The movies typically start at dusk, around 8:30-9:00 p.m., but people start to claim their spots on the lawn as early as 5 p.m. Having said that, I will try to arrive on the mall between 5-5:30pm to secure a decent spot, however, I will need some people there to help me hold the spot. Please leave a comment on the event page if you are able to arrive early to help secure a spot on the mall. Once I identify the exact location, I will post the nearest cross streets on the event page. I will most likely have the California State Flag marking our territory, so hopefully we’ll be easy to locate. If you need to reach me for any reason, text/call me at[masked]-8908.
A non-exhaustive list of things you might want to bring include: (1) food/drink (for yourself or to share), (2) bug spray, (3) a blanket, and (4) a smile.
Looking forward to seeing this movie with y’all!
The Karate Kid (1984) Rated PG. Bullied high-school student Daniel LaRusso (Ralph Macchio) recently transferred to southern California from New Jersey. Taken under the wing of an elderly handyman, Mr. Miyagi (Pat Morita), he is taught discipline (by painting fences and waxing cars?) and self-defense through Karate. In the feel-good finale, the Jersey boy gets to kick some bully butt.
Screen on the Green is a favorite Washington, DC summer tradition. Bring a blanket to the National Mall on a warm night and watch a classic film on a gigantic movie screen. Films are shown on Monday nights beginning at dusk, around 8:30-9:00 p.m. People start to claim their spots on the lawn as early as 5 p.m. Movies play except in extreme weather and there are no rain days.
Instructions: A designated person or myself will scope out a spot on the mall around 5:00 pm. A California State Flag will mark our territory so you should not have a hard time finding the group once details of our location is released.
There are plenty of restaurants nearby if you want to grab dinner before hand. You can also bring food and drinks (alcoholic and non-alcoholic) to the event. Other things you might want to bring include: blanket(s), bug spray, and sunscreen. Lawn chairs are not permitted (but things like stadium seat chairs are).
