Outdoor movie tonight: All the President's Men in Adams Morgan

So it's outside Columbia Heights, but it's close: All the President's Men, about Woodward and Bernstein and Watergate, is showing tonight in Adams Morgan at the Marie Reed field.

It's a great flick and there will also be snacks for sale from Pleasant Pops and goodie bags. Sounds like a fun time.

Here's more from their press release:
Our second film in the series, All the President's Men, starring a young Robert Redford and Dustin Hoffman, screens tonight. 40 years ago our country was obsessed with the Watergate scandal that forced Nixon to resign, but we thought the abuse of power theme of the film is still as important as ever with the Snowden saga in the news recently. 
Where: The plush new Marie Reed School Soccer field @ 18th and California Streets, NW
When: 30 mins after sunset, tonight, weather permitting. Check AdamsMorganMovieNights.com for cancellation info. Rain date is next Tuesday. 
What: The quintessential DC story of Washington Post reporters bringing down a President. This political thriller won 4 Oscars and has made AFI"s list top of 100 films. 
Why: Mandatory political education dressed up as entertainment. Plus Pleasant Pops will be there and some awesome screen printed goodie bags put together by Meeps and Violet Boutique will be handed out to early birds.
