Summer Outdoor Movies’ Nemesis: Rain

Summer brings out outdoor movie-going season, and Washington has its fair share of great venues. But there’s always a risk, as was demonstrated Wednesday night when “Bridesmaids” at NoMa Summer Screen was rained out.

Food trucks bailed, viewers sought shelter under the railroad overpass bridge on K Street in between First and Second streets Northeast. Lucky for all involved, there are several opportunities in the weeks ahead for outdoor movies, which Roll Call After Dark will be addressing more in-depth in posts to come.

In the meantime, NoMa Summer Screen has rescheduled “Bridesmaids” for Aug. 21. Food trucks scheduled for that night include Fojol Bros., Popped Republic, Takorean and Curbside Cupcakes.
