The NoMa Summer Screen outdoor movies will be shown in a large lot on L St. NE, between 2nd and 3rd streets on Wednesday nights, beginning June 10.
The films are primarily documentaries on topic ranging from Motown ("Standing in the Shadows of Motown") to hip-hop DJs ("Scratch") and individual bands like Wilco ("I Am Trying To Break Your Heart") and the Brian Jonestown Massacre ("DIG!"). However, there are fictional biographies sprinkled in, including "Ray," "Lady Sings the Blues" and "No Direction Home."
DJs from the popular funk and soul DJ night Fatback will spin before and after the films, and barbecue will be served. The movies are only one block from the New York Avenue Metro station.
