(May 24) SCREEN ON THE STREET It's a sure sign that summer is on its way when the District has films to be seen on outdoor screens. The U Street Movie Series kicks off a season of Washington-themed gems Tuesday night with Frank Capra’s classic "Mr. Smith Goes To Washington" on V Street between 13th and 14th Streets. In collaboration with AFI's Silverdocs festival, each film is preceded by a documentary short.

(May 24-June 5) COLD LIGHT IN THE FRIDGE Southeast Washington's Fridge gallery has the kind of art that really glows through early June. Three artists mimic bioluminescence and explore the limits of human perception with fluorescent paints, ultra-violet light and fiber optics in "Cold Light: Bioluminescent Evolution".

(May 24) STAND UP AND BE HEARD Washington-area middle and high school students take to the stage of Ford's Theatre Tuesday night to close out a year of study in the art of oratory. "Stand up and be Heard" includes historic speeches and originals inspired by Abraham Lincoln, Frederick Douglass and other great American orators.
