Washington, DC (October 10, 2023) — A nighttime, open air showing of Alfred Hitchcock’s ‘The Birds’ and a 3-week run of the classic zombie story ‘Night of the Living Dead’ are among the fall events promoted by the Golden Triangle Business Improvement District this month.
The two events are in addition to regular concerts and art displays that can be found within the Golden Triangle boundaries in DC’s downtown, according to BID President and CEO Leona Agouridis.
“There are a lot of fun activities to experience downtown all year,” said Agouridis. “What better way to celebrate fall and get in the Halloween spirit than enjoying spooky evening entertainment?”
A free event, GLDN+ Cinema is showing ‘The Birds’ outdoors on October 19th at sunset (around 6:30 pm) at 2100 M Street, NW. Free popcorn and drinks will be provided; just bring your own chair.
And ‘Night of the Living Dead,’ which is adapted from the famous George Romero film, premieres on October 27 and is being staged by the Rorschach Theatre, which is often considered one of the most innovative theaters in DC. Tickets are available for purchase from Rorschach.
The zombie cult classic is being staged at 1020 Connecticut Ave, NW, in the lower-level of the former Big & Tall Store inside the building owned by Lerner Enterprises. The Rorschach’s show is another example of the BID finding ways to creatively use empty office or commercial space for entertainment and enrichment.
In case you’ve forgotten, ‘The Birds’ tells the story of a small town that’s overrun by angry birds, who swoop from the sky and wreak havoc on the town’s people.
