Catching up on new movies can be hard. Tickets are expensive and all the good ones seem to hit theatres at the same time...making it hard to catch everything. That's why these outdoor film screenings are so welcome. They provide a great opportunity to catch up on movies that have slipped through the cracks and they're held during a time of year when being social outdoors may actually be preferable to staying in a warm bedroom with a Netflix queue. Most of these film series haven't started yet, so now seemed to be a good time to map out where these events will take place, what the theme will be (if there is one) and what time to show up.
Finally, we're fully aware that Screen on the Green isn't on the map. Don't shoot the messenger. Direct that ire toward HBO for having not yet released a schedule or even confirmed that it's happening this year. Still, everyone knows that this summer institution is located on the National Mall, right? If we've missed anything else, chances are that they've just not released a schedule (looking at you, U Street and Mt Pleasant), but feel free to bring us up to speed in the comments.
