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 ($15) will be available through Eventbrite beginning August 1.
