Screen on the Green has been a popular event in years passed.

The Screen on the Green summer movie series has announced the four movies it will show this summer on the National Mall.

The free outdoor movie festival kicks off its series with "The Karate Kid'' on July 21.

Other movies playing this summer include "Lover Come Back'' on July 28, "Key Largo'' on August 4 and "A Soldier's Story'' on Aug. 11.

The movie screenings are shown at sunset on a giant 20’ by 40’ screen between 7th and 12th Streets on the National Mall.

This is the 16th year of the series. According to organizers, each screening attracts approximately 15,000 Washingtonians and tourists and is one of the largest community events in the District. It's made possible by Friends of Screen on the Green, along with HBO and Comcast.
