Last chance for dog-friendly Screen on the Green

Tomorrow night, Aug. 6, is your last chance this summer to enjoy the dog-friendly Screen on the Green on the National Mall. And they’re ending this season with a timeless classic, Alfred Hitchcock’s “Psycho.”

Bring a blanket or low chairs (tall chairs are just rude to those who have to sit behind you), snacks and your human and pooch pals for this longstanding D.C. institution! Even though it’s a Monday night, the movie only runs 109 minutes so you’ll be on your way home well before 10:30 p.m.

Even better, Mother Nature is cutting us a break tomorrow, with the high temperature predicted to be just 88 degrees, so the evening should be tolerable.

Movies begin at dusk, which is a little after 8:30 this time of year. The screen is set up between 7th and 12th on the Mall.

A hint from a Screen on the Green veteran—It’s best to walk your pup before the movie and make sure he’s done all his business, or to claim a space near the walkway. Once it’s dark and the movie starts it’s not easy to wind your way out of the maze of blankets and bodies!
