Screen on the Green doesn’t start back up until July 12, but in the meantime you can catch a great movie this Wednesday on the Mall.  The National Capital Planning Commission is sponsoring a screening of  “Make No Little Plans: Daniel Burnham and the American City” on the Mall on Wednesday at 8:30.   This documentary about the father of urban planning is sure to draw out history buffs, planners, and anyone else who loved ‘Devil in the White City‘.  And it’s the perfect place to watch a documentary about the man who helped design the National Mall as we know it.  So grab a blanket and pack a picnic and I’ll see you out there Wednesday night!

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)!
