Movies based around airplanes will start showing the first Monday of June 2014 on the plaza at 1850 S. Bell Street. These titles include movies like “Airplane,” “Snakes on a Plane” and “Top Gun.” Crystal City BID President and CEO Angela Fox said in a press release that the theme is meant to highlight Crystal City’s proximity and symbiotic relationship with Reagan National Airport.
“We don’t know of any other neighborhood in the world that has a major airport that you can actually walk to,” Fox said. “So, we are highlighting this uniquely accessible aspect of Crystal City with a summer of flight-based movies.”
This year’s theme is Blockbusters, with two more screenings left: “Inception” on Monday, Aug. 19 and “Jurassic Park” Aug. 26. Previous year’s themes have been “Rom Com,” showing romantic comedies, “By the Numbers” and “Star Trek.” Other outdoor movie events around Arlington include the Rosslyn Outdoor Film Festival, which has a “Back to School” theme this year, and Penrose Square’s regular movie screenings.
