Funny that I just mentioned ET in my previous post, because the movie is actually showing right here in town—tonight! Even better, your family can catch the classic from the comfort of a blanket or lawn chair under a sky full of stars on a gorgeous summer evening. “E.T.: The Extra Terrestrial” is this week’s feature for NoMa Summer Screen, a free, weekly outdoor film series that takes place on L Street NE between 2nd & 3rd Streets. (While the series began in May, this is the first mention here, since not all of the movies have been appropriate for kids.)
Along with the movie, there will be local BBQ by Smokin’ Somethin’, popcorn and Italian ice, and music by Fatback. Plan on a late night for the kids—the festivities start at 7pm, but the movie doesn’t begin until 9pm. Admission is free.
