Five Things for Today: October 7, 2020

Catch Degas at the Opéra at the National Gallery of Art through this weekend

Hours are 11am – 4pm daily. Reserve free passes here.


2. Rosslyn Cinema is back at Gateway park this fall with a line-up of outdoor movies to enjoy on Friday evenings in October.  This week’s film is You’ve Got Mail, October 16 is Remember the Titans, and  October 23 is Hocus Pocus.  Admission is FREE, but you must register the Wednesday before the movie you want to attend — that’s today if you want to see Meg and Tom quaintly message over AOL.  Food and drinks will not be for sale there, but you can BYO (no alcohol, though). Follow the link for more details and registration.
