Why Go: The New York Times calls this finale of the "Dark Knight" series, "the grave and satisfying finish to Mr. Nolan’s operatic bat-trilogy." Even if you're not impressed by all hype, do you really want to be the only guy in your office on Monday who didn't go see what's likely to be the biggest blockbuster in years?
Pricing: Primetime tickets to the non-3D version of the film generally start at about $12.50. Expect to pay more for the 3D version and more, of course, for snacks and popcorn.
When/Where: The movies starts at dusk at the Gateway Park near the Key Bridge in Rosslyn.
Why Go: If you'd rather save some money instead of shelling out at least $60 for tickets, snacks and drinks at a traditional movie theater, how does a free movie sound? This week, the outdoor film festival features "Dave," starring Kevin Kline and Sigourney Weaver.
Pricing: Free to attend.
When/Where: The Washington National Cathedral (3101 Wisconsin Ave., NW) has panels from the AIDS Memorial Quilt on display through Thursday, July 26. The interfaith memorial service to Honor Those Living with HIV/AIDS will be Saturday, July 21, at 7 p.m.
Why Go: DC is hosting the 19th annual International AIDS Conference July 22-27 and this year marks the quilt’s 25th anniversary. The St. George panel was blessed by Archbishop Desmond Tutu on June 22 in Cape Town, South Africa before makings its journey to Washington, D.C. Another notable, "The Last One," has been rarely displayed in public.
