James Bond Film Festival Continues in NoMa:
“Goldfinger” Thursday, May 22
Washington, D.C., May 21, 2008….The summer-long James Bond Film Festival, hosted by the NoMa (North of Massachusetts Avenue) Business Improvement District (BID) in Washington, D.C.., continues this week with a free showing of “Goldfinger” on Thursday, May 22 starting at dusk.
The film will be shown outdoors at the intersection of Florida and New York Avenues, N.E. The site is located directly across Florida Avenue from the New York Avenue Metro station on the Red Line and the Department of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) headquarters. Attendees are encouraged to bring a blanket and walk, bike, or take Metro.
On the Fly, DC’s latest craze in street vending, will have its bright green electric vehicle onsite serving great food from some of the city’s favorite local restaurants like Julia’s Empanadas, Rocklands BBQ, and more.
The James Bond Film Festival will be held each Thursday night through August 28, rain or shine, with each film showing preceded by an Odd-job and other Bond character look-alike contest. The film series will take place on the future site of MRP Realty’s Washington Gateway project, a one million square foot mixed-use project that will begin construction later this year. A movie schedule and map are available at www.nomabid.org.
