~ JULY 8TH - DESTRY RIDES AGAIN ~ JULY 15TH - ROPE
~ JULY 22ND - HARVEY ~ JULY 29TH - ANATOMY OF A MURDER
~ AUGUST 5TH - THE FLIGHT OF THE PHOENIX
The glitz and magic of the Golden Age of Hollywood comes alive when this historic locale present FREE motion picture retrospectives profiling the careers of legendary actors, directors, and producers who shaped American cinema. Screenings take place in the Helen Hayes Gallery of the National Theatre on select Monday evenings at 6:30p throughout the year. Tickets are distributed on a first-come, first-serve basis, 30 minutes prior to screening; one ticket per person in line. Films can sell out, so arrive early to assure your place in line, and avoid disappointment.
On Christmas Day, the National Theatre is presenting its first Broadway subscription season in more than a decade. Porgy and Bess is hitting the road, bringing George and Ira’s legendary masterwork to the stage for only the second time in more than 35 years. Winner of the 2012 Tony for Best Revival of a Musical, uniquely American compositions as Summertime, It Ain’t Necessarily So, and I Got Plenty of Nothing should guarantee a great holiday production. Time Magazine has exclaimed, This is a don’t-miss theatre event!
The National Theatre is located at 1321 Pennsylvania Ave., NW in Washington D.C.
