Hollywood on The Hill – Tour September 2021

Posted on June 25th, 2021

Mike Canning presents Hollywood on the Hill, May 2021

Mike Canning, a member of the Washington Area Film Critics Association, has reviewed movies for the Hill Rag newspaper in DC for over 25 years, writing often on the depiction of Washington in American feature films. This led to a commission by the Friends of Southeast Library for a book focusing on DC movies, “Hollywood on the Potomac.” Mike will lead a group of  cinephiles along East Capitol Street, where he will point out prominent location sites and offer both historical lore and cinematic anecdotes.

An easy stroll, approximately a half-mile, lasting about  an hour plus time for Q&A. Be prepared to walk in any weather. We will follow the CDC guidelines, and District of Columbia regulations, in effect at the time of the tours regarding outdoor mask requirements.

Autographed copies of “Hollywood on the Potomac” will be available for sale, $10 (cash/check). Recap of Mike’s presentation at a Preservation Café.


Tickets no longer available.  Check the November schedule for tours that may be of interest.
