Free and easy events
This week's free events include a new exhibit at the Anacostia Community Museum, the finale of the Fort Reno concert series and an outdoor screening of the original "Batman."
A 'Mary Poppins' cabaret
You don't have to shell out big bucks to see the stars of "Mary Poppins" at the Kennedy Center. The Millennium Stage hosts a song-and-dance performance with Jacob ben Widmar and pianist William Johnson.
'Word, Shout, Song: Lorenzo Dow Turner Connecting Communities Through Language'
A new exhibit features recordings, artifacts and rare photographs collected in the 1930s of the unassimilated Gullah community living in corners of George Georgia and South Carolina.
The Argonaut bar has returned, Phoenix-like, from an early-summer kitchen fire. With its return comes its rowdy weekly trivia night, famous for the range and unpredictability of its topics.
Office of Future Plans at Fort Reno
You know summer is nearing its end when the long-running Fort Reno rock series presents its final show. The last one will be a good one, with this new band featuring J. Robbins, former singer-guitarist for local post-punk titans Jawbox.
Metro D.C. Dances
Local dance troupes Capitol Movement Inc., Junior Company, Contradiction Dance, New School of Dance & Arts and Next Reflex Dance Collective perform at this eighth annual free event.
Alexandria Irish Festival
Pipe bands, bagpipers, singers and Irish dance troupes perform throughout the day at this festival, which also includes traditional Irish food and plenty of Guinness.
'Batman' at National Harbor
"The Dark Knight" may be more dazzling, but the first film in this franchise, directed by Tim Burton and starring Michael Keaton and Jack Nicholson in one of his most memorable roles, still holds up two decades later.
