Crowds gathered on the lawn of the Library’s Jefferson Building on July 13 to view “The Princess Bride,” undeterred by weather that was a little warm and humid, even for a Washington, D.C., summer evening.
The outdoor screening kicked off a six-film series, “LOC Summer Movies on the Lawn,” showcasing modern classics that have been added to the Library’s National Film Registry.
“There’s something special about sitting under the stars watching a good movie with family and friends, so we’re excited to invite everyone to the lawn of America’s Library this summer to enjoy some great modern classics,” said Librarian of Congress Carla Hayden.
Films will be presented on Thursday evenings at 8 p.m. from July 13 through August 17. If you plan to be in Washington, D.C, during this time, think about joining us!
