NoMa Summer Screen: Dance, Dance, Dance!
Get out your dancing shoes, because the NoMa Summer Screen lineup is official! NoMa Summer Screen returns in its 8th season with a smorgasbord of dance films, from oldies to Bollywood to cult favorites. In addition, this year’s film series under the stars will be hosted in a new location at the Storey Park lot, a future development site at First and L Streets, NE, that will be transformed for 2015 into NoMa’s best pre-park yet.

Join your friends for DJ music and dance classes, as well as the usual food trucks, picnicking, art and more. All movies are screened with subtitles.
