Gulf Branch Nature Center was once the home of silent screen star, Pola Negri. Come to Gulf Branch at 2 p.m. and take a short walk to explore some of the local area, which features a Civil War fort. Meet on the stone patio outside the Nature Center. After exploring the outside, we'll attend a Pola Negri program (fee of $5 to Nature Center), followed by dinner at nearby Elevation Burger.
Pola Negri program description:
Pola Negri was a famous silent screen siren who took Hollywood -and its leading men - by storm. Legend has it that she once lived at Gulf Branch when it was still a private home. Find out more, and then watch Hotel Imperial, featuring Pola as a hotel chambermaid who helps thwart a dangerous spy during WWI. Popcorn and soda will be served. Information:[masked]-3403. Meet at GBNC. $5 fee.
Notes: 1) You must register beforehand for the Pola Negri program. Either create an account and do so online or, perhaps if you are a one-timer with Arlington, give them a call at [masked]. The program # is[masked]-E. Fee is $5. 2) If you can offer a ride from the metro, please indicate so in your rsvp. 3) It is ok if you only come for the movie. It begins at 3 p.m.
