Happy Ending for Screen on the Green

By Fritz Hahn

Good news for fans of Screen on the Green: The Post's Dan Zak is reporting that the outdoor film festival will take place after all, thanks to funds from Comcast and the Trust for the National Mall.

The first film shown will be "Close Encounters of the Third Kind" on July 20, with other movies -- titles TBA -- showing every Monday though August 10.

Glad to hear about Screen on the Green, but surprised that there wasn't a greater effort/reaction to keep the Shakespeare Free for All at Carter and the free NSO summer concerts at Carter Barron - these were surely some of DC's most popular events at one of the city's most special venues. (FYI, the Shakespeare Theater moved the Free for Alldowntown, indoors and to the fall, while the NSO appears to have abandoned its free concerts at Carter Barron in favor of paid performances at Wolf Trap).
Any ideas how to get those events back to Carter Barron?
