Part of the Library’s sixth annual “Summer Movies on the Lawn,” this series showcases iconic films from the Library’s National Film Registry and will be presented on Thursday evenings at sundown on the southeast lawn of the Library’s Thomas Jefferson Building, located on the corner of 2nd Street SE and Independence Avenue. To celebrate the upcoming National Book Festival, all of the movies presented are adapted from books or comics.
