The Great Cinematic Outdoors

By Jen Chaney

'Tis the season for outdoor movies.

The annual Screen on the Green festival begins Monday with the weeper that inspired Carrie Bradshaw to leave Mr. Big in "Sex and the City's" second season: "The Way We Were." The free movies continue on the National Mall every Monday through Aug. 15; features include "The Treasure of the Sierra Madre," "Suspicion," "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?" and "The Big Sleep."

Of course, Screen on the Green isn't the only outdoor movie game in town. Movies Under the Moon -- a week-long film fest at George Mason University -- kicks off this Friday night with "The Sound of Music" and runs through July 23. Comcast sponsors a similar event in Alexandria's Ben Brenman Park from July 29 to 31, then follows that up in August with its annual outdoor film fest on the grounds of North Bethesda's Strathmore Hall, to be held Aug. 12-21. If you're a Bethesda resident and can't wait that long, you can catch a couple of outdoor flicks on Aug. 10 and 11 at Woodmont Triangle: "Casablanca" screens for free on the 10th, followed by "Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom" on the 11th. Really, what could be more romantic than spending an evening under the stars with Indiana Jones and Short Round?

Correction, Jen.

Carrie had already left Big and Big was already engaged to Natasha in the "The Way We Were" episode of Sex and the City.

The movie didn't inspire her to leave Big, it just reinforced her decision.

Get it straight!
