Bond is Back!

007 Returns to Crystal Screen

Crystal City (Arlington, VA) – Monday nights will be filled with action next summer as the Crystal City Business Improvement District (BID) brings back a Crystal Screen favorite – James Bond. Bond is Back will feature 14 weeks of the best 007 films chosen through audience favorites every Monday from June through August.

“Crystal City broke the outdoor movie festival mold by launching the very first Bond-themed series back in 2008 and we are excited for the triumphant return of everyone’s favorite super-spy,” said Angela Fox, President/CEO of the Crystal City BID. “There are so many great Bond films that we wanted to give the fans a chance to see their favorite ones all summer.”

Keeping with the tradition of audience engagement, the Crystal City BID is asking for help in selecting the #BondisBack line-up. Beginning today, people can vote online for the top fourteen films to be on the 2015 schedule. The winning movies will be announced at the final Crystal Screen: In Flight on Monday, August 25 featuring Snakes on a Plane.

Crystal Screen annually attracts thousands of visitors throughout the metropolitan area. The festival is shown in one of Crystal City’s many welcoming green spaces, owned, managed, and donated for the festival by Vornado/Charles E. Smith. Convenient to Metro and Crystal City’s many restaurants, Crystal Screen offers the perfect opportunity for a leisurely and affordable romantic night out with dinner and a movie – whether a take-out picnic on the grass or a traditional sit-down dinner. - See more at
