Outdoor Movies Return to Silver Spring

If you're still lamenting the loss of Silver Spring's outdoor movie series, fear not - it has returned, albeit in a much scaled-down form. Starting tomorrow, "Screen on the Lot" will be showing movies in the parking lot of the Pyramid Atlantic Art Center. In keeping with their stated mission of "nurturing artistic excellence through imaginative programming in the visual arts", Pyramid Atlantic will be screening such avant-garde films as Transformers, Iron Man and School of Rock.

While some may dislike the experience of watching films outdoors, it's better to have them available than not. Rockville Town Square still shows flicks outside, although their selections include I'd-rather-eat-a-bullet-rather-than-watch-this motion pictures such as He's Just Not That Into You. Perhaps next year Silver Spring can use the soon-to-be-abandoned Sligo Creek Golf Course for outdoor movies...

It'd be great if someone organized some MobMovs in Silver Spring this summer. There's got to be an adequate space back in the imaginary Ripley District or elsewhere around downtown. I can imagine the humorless MoCo cops would frown upon this idea, however.



I love drive-ins, but right now the closest (official) one is way out past Baltimore. Are there any hipsters out there that want to be on point for this mission? I'll supply the cupcakes.

Just to clarify - you sit on the ground/chair/blanket for the movies at Pyramid Atlantic. If we had MobMovs, which we don't, you'd be in your car.

Oooooh, so this one is more like a drive in than sitting on a blanket? I like that. It suits DTSS.

Being at the corner of Georgia and Ripley, I believe Pyramid Atlantic is already in the Ripley District.

Of course it is, but that's where the "Screen on the Lot" is. I'm referring to the so-called "Ripley District" with respect to a potential space for a MobMov.

There is a MobMov chapter in Bethesda. I just signed up for the newsletter. This sounds like an awesome idea. I don't know if it's the late afternoon caffeine talking, but I really dig it. I've been wanting to go to a drive-in for a really long time, but I'm not trekking up nearly to Pennsylvania. I used to go quite often growing up since we lived near one, and I really miss it.
