Summers in the District are made for watching movies under the stars.  That is exactly the reason why so many venues are catching on and hosting their own summer outdoor movie series.  Here are a couple to catch before the heat wave ends:

Films start at 8:00pm and films begin at 8:30pm.

Where:  Occidental Grill & Seafood, 1475 Pennsylvania Ave. NW, Washington DC, 20004

Price:  $45.00 per person (not inclusive of tax, gratuity, or alcoholic beverages)

2.  The Washington City Paper’s Summer Movie Series finishes up this week, August 13, 2015 with The NeverEnding Story.  The Washington City Paper teamed up with RCN, The Heurich House and Schofferhofer Grapefruit to present its annual Summer Movie Series in the The Heurich House courtyard (1307 New Hampshire Ave, NW).  The doors open at 6 pm and movies start at dusk.  It is FREE and all ages welcome.
