Friday Night at the Movies: ‘Slam,’ a Portrait of D.C., at Hill Center

“Slam,” a movie that portrays Washington D.C., in a manner not often seen on screen, is Friday night’s featured flick at Hill Center at the Old Naval Hospital.

The 1998 film about a small-fry criminal who finds a way out, at least intellectually, with poetry, “Slam” shows parts of the district that aren’t likely to show up much in, say, Mark Leibovich’s “This Town.”

The Hill Center/Friends of Southeast Library series “Hill Flicks/Hollywood on the Potomac” is hosted by Hill Rag film critic Mike Canning. The reels start spinning at 7 p.m. at 921 Pennsylvania Ave. SE. Admission is free, but please register at
