Films for Movie Lovers: "Back To The Future" & Ice Cream Social

Date and Time for this Past Event



Bring your friends, neighbors, and family to a new outdoor film series in Friendship Heights, “Movies for Film Lovers.” The events will take place on Thursday evenings in the fall, offering classic and favorite films for the family. 

The music, fun, and hanging out starts at 6 pm. Come for popcorn and the fun events mentioned below, and bring a chair or blanket – the surface is asphalt.

The Film Lineup:

Sept. 21: Back To The Future (1985)  RSVP

Come out for an ice cream social with all your friends, followed by the movie at 7:30 pm. Come early for a brief meditation in partnership with the World Culture Festival.

About the film: Marty McFly, a 17-year-old high school student, is accidentally sent 30 years into the past in a time-traveling DeLorean invented by his close friend, the maverick scientist Doc Brown.

Oct. 12: Casablanca (1942) RSVP
Calling all those adults in the neighborhood who love a classic film. Bring a friend or partner and come for an adult beverage at the mixer, followed by a toast to the movie at 7 pm. 

About the film: A cynical expatriate American cafe owner struggles to decide whether or not to help his former lover and her fugitive husband escape the Nazis in French Morocco.

Nov. 16: Wall-E (2008) RSVP
It gets darker earlier in November, so it's the perfect time to bring out the kids for s'mores and an early film on a Thursday night, especially when our favorite robot reminds us to take good care of the planet. We'll provide the marshmallows and napkins. Movie starts at 6:30 pm.

About the film: In the distant future, a small waste-collecting robot inadvertently embarks on a space journey that will ultimately decide the fate of mankind.

Location: Parking lot behind 5151 Wisconsin Avenue NW (the former Fox 5 building). Pedestrians or cyclists may enter at the gates on Garrison and Harrison Streets NW; no vehicles will be allowed on the site.
