    Such a well-done movie! I'm always torn about whether Fannie should hold out for Edmund or accept the rakish Mr. Crawford (who looked particularly fetching in this version). The weather was perfect for an outdoor film viewing. The only thing that could have possibly made the evening better is bug spray, which we all forgot to bring.

      I got bit by (some type of) a bug on TUES night! Should NOT be walking about TOO much in humidity, I guess. Glad y'all had fun!

    Ladies, I hope you are having a fabulous time. I completely flubbed and thought this was the rescheduled time for the first movie. Nope!!! I was supposed to be there, and somehow had conflicting plans tonight. My sincere apologies for missing your amazing company (boooooo.). I look forward to seeing you all soon, hopefully! Forgive my scattery brain (:

    Does this mean the event is definitely cancelled for tonight/rescheduled for the 17th? Or should we stay tuned for final confirmation?

      Yes, Emily just checked (this afternoon) w/ Dumberton House. Then she texted me about it.

      Okay, thanks. See you on the 17th then, hopefully!

    I'll be driving to the venue from south Arlington. Anyone in Arlington/Alexandria want to drive there together?

      I'll be in Rosslyn/Courthouse if you want some company in the car!

      July 10, 2013

    • Marni

      I'd be happy to give you a ride. Meet in front of Rosslyn metro @ 6:40? (Assuming the show is on, of course!)

    Do we know when they'll make the call about rain tonight? Looks like there's a 50% chance of rain during the movie...

      I will call (before 3PM) and check w/ the museum ppl!

    I'll bring a big blanket that folks can share. Does anyone have a tarp or plastic sheet to put under it/other blankets in case the ground is damp from this week's rain? Probably a good idea.

      Thnx Marni- that's GREAT idea! I don't have a tarp thing, but can ask my roomie.

    I can't make it on the 10th or even on the rain day :-( Hope to make it to the August one.

    FYI, I just checked the website and it says "Mansfield Park" (the version with Frances O'Connor as Fannie) is playing on July 10th, not "Emma."
