FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: June 7, 2016
Crystal City (Arlington, VA) – Despite earlier confirmations with the movie licensing company, rights to publicly show the Star Wars movies for the Crystal Screen outdoor movie festival were lost due to an unexpected move from the DARK SIDE! So, we’re celebrating by drowning our sorrows in the comfort of sweets and sips. Please join us instead as we indulge this September with fun movies about wine and chocolate.
The Crystal Screen Sips & Sweets movie festival joins our Sip Your Way Through September (aka SIP-tember) line-up which includes the annual Sip and Salsa on Sunday, September 11th, Pups and Pilsners on Sunday, September 18th, and Wine in the Water Park every Friday throughout September.
Movies will be shown every Tuesday evening about 30 minutes after sunset on the lawn at 1901 S. Bell Street. Bring a picnic or take-out from area restaurants and enjoy sips from the pop-up wine bar (cash) with hand-selected offerings from the Crystal City Wine Shop and tasty sweet samples from Crystal City’s Schakolad.
