Free and easy events
This week's free events include the return of Screen on the Green, the Capitals Fan Fest and Baltimore's Artscape.
'Goldfinger' at Screen on the Green
Bring a blanket and picnic to the Mall for the start of one of the city's favorite summer events. The original 007, Sean Connery, stars in "Goldfinger," one of the most popular James Bond flicks.
Stories From the Sea: At the Bottom of Shakespeare's Ocean
Take a deep dive into Shakespeare's plays when author Steve Mentz discusses the role of the sea in the Bard's works. As a bonus, get an after-hours look at the Folger exhibition "Lost at Sea: The Ocean in the English Imagination, 1550-1750."
Meet the artist
Chat with the woman behind "Transparency," Zenith Gallery's new exhibition of colorful glass sculptures, when Jackie L. Braitman visits The Gallery at 1111 Pennsylvania Avenue.
An outdoor screening of "Mamma Mia" begins at 9 p.m., but show up at 6 p.m. for ABBA karaoke to get ready. Chances are you can do a better job than Pierce Brosnan.
Most Fringe Festival performances cost $15, but Liz Lerman Dance Exchange is giving Fringe fans a little something for nothing. On Friday and Saturday, pay a visit to the massive garage on Florida Avenue in Adams Morgan for a site-specific dance about -- you guessed it -- parking.
Capitals Fan Fest
The Washington Capitals development camp ends with a full scrimmage and summer fan fest, which features the team's equipment sale, inflatable games and autograph sessions.
"America's largest free arts festival" concludes three days of music, film, theater, fashion and comedy. D.C. rap star Wale is the day's headliner.
