"Make No Little Plans" Film Showing on the Mall Tomorrow

Cool film screening on the National Mall tomorrow tonight, June 9. The PBS documentary by Archimedia Workshop, Make No Little Plans: Daniel Burnham & the American City is making its DC debut out in the open air. The planner Burnham is mostly known for submitting an ambitious plan directing the growth of Chicago; and locally for designing the beaux-arts styled Union Station.

Tomorrow's showing is an event of sorts with guests and speakers from all over the place including the White House, National Endowment for the Humanities, National Capital Planning Commission, and even the Philippine Ambassador to the United States.

The film will begin at 9:00pm after an introduction and speakers at 8:30. This is near where Screen on the Green operates, 4th Street NW at Madison.
