screen on the [rainy] green

caroline, me, kayla

screen on the green has been going on in dc for some years now. every monday (only 4 mondays this year) there is a movie played on a big screen on the national mall. on monday, i met up with lovely friends caroline and kayla to watch the '70s flick, the goodbye girl.
caroline and i arrived a little early, were chatting and all of a sudden it started to pour. we took shelter under our umbrellas and some large trees. luckily by the time kayla arrived, before the movie began--- the rain had stopped.

and the movie was better than we expected. we were a little confused about the plot--- and then someone announced that somehow the movie was out of sequence. the scenes were out of order. so we just left and got a frozen treat instead (although i am still curious how the movie ends).

thanks ladies. it was a great adventure!

I am so jealous! When I lived in San Diego, we used to have movies in the park. They only played the classics. It was so magical!

The movie is a classic from the 70's, seems like it may have had marsha mason and richard dreyfus in it. It was remade a few years ago, an updated version, with Patricia Heaton as the lead. The remake did not quite have the classic feel of the original but Patricia Heaton was better than
marsha mason, however, richard dreyfus would always be the male lead
first choice. The moral of the story was not particularly moral and that was distasteful but it was good entertainment. anything you do on a lawn in the summer on a warm evening with good friends is fun. great blog, nice pictures of the ladies...

We saw Toy Story 3 last night. Fortunately it was indoors. The movie was so creative and fun, but it was sad.
And I agree with Shayna. [Just a little bias]

we have something similar here in Indy called "Summer Nights" at the art museum. It's so fun...but can be tricky with the weather.
