Now here’s something to look forward to: every Thursday night beginning June 3rd, the Capitol Riverfront BID will screen movies at the future site of Canal Park.  They need your help now to pick the best movies that fit this summer’s “Ultimate Underdog” theme.  Rudy, Forrest Gump, Finding Nemo, Miracle– there are so many to choose from, so go vote for your favorites now.  And in just a few short months, you can grab a blanket, head to Navy Yard, and watch your favorite characters triumph over adversity.

Last year the theme was 80s movies, and just looking through their pictures is getting me excited about outdoor movie season!

Shannon grew up in the greater DC area/Maryland suburbs, went to Virginia for college and grad school (go Hoos!), and settled in DC in 2006. She’s an urban planner who loves transit (why yes, that is her dressed as a Metro pylon for Halloween), cities, and all things DC. Email her at Shannon (at)!

  1. Hmm, is the Survey Monkey link not working for you? It’s working ok for me– but if you’re having trouble, try going to the Capitol Riverfront page and follow their link in the bottom left corner (‘Read More’ under Summer Movies).
