Family Movie Night Season Coming to Florida Avenue Park
The District’s Department of Parks and Recreation (DPR) brings "Fun Family Films Under The Stars,” to south Bloomingdale at Florida Avenue Park at 1st and Florida Avenue across from the great Big Bear Café. This movie festival offers residents of all ages and families of all sizes the opportunity to enjoy viewing free, family-oriented films in DPR’s outdoor settings. As in previous years, viewers are invited to bring their own snacks, chairs and blankets.
Movies will be shown from 8:45 pm to 11 pm.
At select locations throughout the summer, community members who arrive early enough for each screening will have the opportunity to place a vote between two movies that may be shown that evening. For example, one night, those attending the Columbia Heights Recreation Center screening were asked to choose between the 2005 comedy “Are We There Yet?” starring Nia Long and Ice Cube or the 2006 drama “Akeelah and the Bee” with Angela Bassett, Laurence Fishburne and Keke Palmer. The movie which receives the most votes will be shown.
So come on out this Sunday evening at 8:45 pm to Florida Avenue Park !
And come out next Thursday, the 24th when Family Movie Night comes to the Harry Thomas Rec Center on Lincoln Road NE.
