Key Largo (Screen on the Green)

Key Largo (1948) No Rating. Maxwell Anderson wrote the play that inspired this claustrophobic suspense tale of a WWII vet forced into a confrontation with a ruthless gangster and his gang.  It all plays out at a seedy Florida hotel during hurricane season.

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).

    Hi everyone! I'll be getting there around 5/5:30 to secure us a spot in the front section (7th and Constitution). I'll be on a turquoise blue and white blanket. Give me a call at[masked] if you need help finding us. I won't have a cooler with me so please bring your own drinks and snacks.

      Hey Sharif, we'll most likely be in the front section by the screen. It's easiest to get off at the Archives metro and walk along 7th St towards Constitution Ave. I'll post a comment on here once I've secured a spot.

    I needed to get my bike fixed. I thought I would be done in time because I was going to ride my bike to the mall but alas that was not the case. Until next time my Left-coasters.
