Nordic Cool Festival at the Kennedy Center - songs, supper, art and cinema!

I've been wanting to give everyone an opportunity to see all the exhibits and festivities taking place at the Kennedy Center for the Nordic Cool Festival - including the incredible boat of shirts. (Really.)  Let's meet around 6:30 and we'll hear a little of the Millennium Stage performer - Wimme, a Sami joik singer from Finland.  Then around 7 pm we will buy $8 tickets to the film The Deep starting at 9 pm.  Based on a real incident and directed by Baltasar Kormákur--who scored such a great success with his first Hollywood film, Contraband, last year--The Deep chronicles an amazing ship wreck and survival story. It is Iceland's submission for the Foreign Film Oscar.

There are exhibits to see both downstairs and upstairs. At around 7:30 we can go get something to eat in the cafeteria - the salad bar there is very affordable and good.  It will be busy but we'll have the advantage of not having to rush off to an 8pm performance.  We'll leave some time again to see the exhibits before the film.  Seats are reserved so we won't have to worry about getting in the theater early.

Thanks to Brian Payne who suggested this early on.  I've been through the Nordic Cool exhibits once and it really is a blast - there are videos, art exhibits, interactive pieces and even a huge maze.  The film is only about 95 minutes so it should be ending around 10:30.  With our usual nice group, this should be a good time.  If you can't make it at 6:30, that's fine.  It's a very flexible evening.

    This event would have been my first one with this group. I came to the Kennedy Center but did not find the group. What would have been a good way to find you?

    We do not need to buy tickets in advance. As I wrote, at 7 pm we will head to the box office to purchase them. This way we can sit together (seats are reserved) and avoid any fees. My number is 703.338.7494. There is a free shuttle that runs from Foggy Bottom Metro to the Kennedy Center. Parking varies between garages, meters and some free street parking for those who don't mind searching. Looking forward to a great evening! Thanks for signing up. :-)
