NoMa Events This Week: Movies, Murals & July 4

July 1, 2015

July 1: Watch Grease at NoMa Summer Screen Wednesday
Grab your dancing shoes – Grease hits the screen at NoMa Summer Screen Wednesday, July 1. The fun starts at 7 PM, and film starts at sunset. DJs, giveaways, as well as the usual food trucks, picnicking, and more start when the doors open. All movies are screened with subtitles.
Bluejacket Brewery will also be on site selling their fantastic summer brews!
This year’s danciest film series under the stars is hosted at NoMa Junction @ Storey Park, a future development site at 1005 First Street, NE, that has been transformed for 2015 into NoMa’s best temporary park yet. The new site is asphalt, so we highly recommend you bring low beach chairs or cushions. View the full schedule.
