After being resurrected at the last minute last year, a Screen on the Green for 2010 was anything but a given. The District has no shortage of free outdoor movie series these days, but the event on the National Mall is the undoubtedly the most popular, with a culture all its own.
With the Capitol as a backdrop, this summer's event will show classic films on four consecutive Mondays, reports the Washington Post:
July 12: "Goldfinger"
July 19: "The Goodbye Girl"
July 26: "12 Angry Men"
Aug. 2: "Bonnie and Clyde"
So dig out those low camping chairs, find a place to buy an outrageous helium balloon... and of course, brush up on your moves for the beloved HBO Dance.
