The U Street Movie Series is back on Tuesday night, August 10, with The Soloist. 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, which is now around 8 pm.

Rain date is August 17. More info is also available on the U Street Movies Facebook Page.

The theme of this year’s movie series pays 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. The last film, Michael Jackson’s This Is It, was seen by a crowd of over 450 in June.

The movie series is sponsored by the U Street Neighborhood Association, Meridian Hill Neighborhood Association, ANC 1B and MidCity Business Association.

The final movie of the season at Harrison Field will be Duke Ellington’s Washington and Soul Power on September 14 (rain date September 21).

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.
