The U Street Movie Series concludes for the summer on Tuesday night, September 14, with a double feature:  Duke Ellington’s Washington and Soul Power. The rain date is September 21.

The films are shown at the field at Harrison Recreation Center, 1330 V Street NW. Gates open at 7 pm and showtime is at sundown. DJ Yellow Fever and guests will be spinning from 7 to 8:30 pm. Free popcorn will be provided by Ventnor Sports to the first 100 attendees beginning at 8 pm.

The theme of this year’s movie series paid homage to the musical and culturally diverse roots of the U Street Neighborhood, with a series of documentaries and films telling moving stories of accomplished musicians. More than 800 people attended the previous showings of Michael Jackson’s This is It, the Buena Vista Social Club, and The Soloist in June, July and August.

The movie series is sponsored by the U Street Neighborhood Association, Meridian Hill Neighborhood Association, ANC 1B and MidCity Business Association. Donations and sponsorships towards the event benefit Friends of Harrison Recreation Center, a nonprofit formed in 2009 that works directly with DC Department of Parks and Recreation.
