Friday, June 24

At the New Deal Cafe


Candyman and the Baltimore Show: From boogie woogie blues to jazz to swing to R&B to rock & roll, The Show is moved by the time-honored sound of American music. At The Show, it’s all noteworthy with music that makes you feel good! (8 to 11pm)

At the Old Greenbelt Theatre


“Elvis” opens! Click for times. The film explores the life and music of Elvis Presley (Austin Butler), seen through the prism of his complicated relationship with his enigmatic manager, Colonel Tom Parker (Tom Hanks). The story delves into the complex dynamic between Presley and Parker spanning over 20 years, from Presley’s rise to fame to his unprecedented stardom, against the backdrop of the evolving cultural landscape and loss of innocence in America. Central to that journey is one of the most significant and influential people in Elvis’s life, Priscilla Presley (Olivia DeJonge).

“Brian and Charles” opens. Click for times. BRIAN AND CHARLES follows Brian, a lonely inventor in rural Wales, who spends his days building quirky, unconventional contraptions that seldom work. Undeterred by his lack of success, Brian attempts his biggest project yet. Three days, a washing machine, and various spare parts later, he’s invented Charles, an artificially intelligent robot who learns English from a dictionary and has an obsession with cabbages. What follows is a humorous and entirely heartwarming story about friendship, family, finding love, and letting go.

At Greenbelt Lake

Walk around the Lake with Greenbelt Biota. This will be a leisurely walk around Greenbelt Lake. On a large flat dirt trail. A good portion of the trail is in the shade. We will meet in the parking lot on Field House Rd., i.e. between the lake and St Hugh of Grenoble church. Here is the Google Map location: https://goo.gl/maps/VFtxcPjvppsgbS239 The lake has a lot of interesting plants to observe, probably because its location is believed to have been a breaded stream – before being dug (by hand) by CCC workers during the construction of Greenbelt in 1937. We plan for 3 hours but in this case it may be less. Anyone can leave the group whenever they wish.

At Edmonston Road at Sunnywide

Crepuscular Coyote Crap from Greenbelt Biota. Walk along gravel road into BARC to look for coyote scats. Meet at the gravel parking lot just north of the Sunnyside/Edmonston Rd. intersection, on the east side of Edmonston Rd. We plan to take half an hour to walk a mile out along a dirt road between the fields, then half an hour to walk back. No guarantee that we’ll see coyote scats, but they’ve been found along this road before. Possible bonus:We hope to follow the walk by an informal MMM gathering (Midsummer Mothing Muster), at a nearby Greenbelt location. The kind of event where a white cloth is tied between 2 trees and one shines a light on it to attract and observe moths. It will be a new moon so good timing.
