HBO And Comcast Present SCREEN ON THE GREENA®

Stocks in this article: CMCSA CMCSK

WASHINGTON, June 2, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- HBO and Comcast are proud to announce the return of a favorite Washington summertime tradition, Screen on the Green.  Marking its 16 th year, the festival will kick-off July 21st with the 1984 classic " THE KARATE KID ." The free outdoor event will continue with screenings each Monday evening at sunset through August 11th. Each movie will be shown on a giant 20' by 40' outdoor screen on The National Mall between 7th and 12th Streets. The screenings are free and open to the public.

2014 Schedule :

JULY 21-THE KARATE KID (Sony/ Columbia) What kid?  Ralph Macchio was going on 23 when he starred as a bullied high-school student, recently transferred to southern California from New Jersey.  Taken under the wing of an elderly handyman, Mr. Miyagi ( Pat Morita, Oscar nominated), he is taught discipline (by painting fences and waxing cars?) and self-defense through Karate.  In the feel-good finale, the Jersey boy gets to kick some bully butt.  A feeble 2010 remake starred Jackie Chan, but it was not renamed "The Kung-Fu Kid." (1984) 126 Min. PG Rated

JULY 28 -LOVER COME BACK (Universal) After the phenomenal success of "Pillow Talk," Doris Day and Rock Hudson (and best buddy Tony Randall) were teamed up for another frothy romantic-comedy.  Doris and Rock played competing Madison Avenue ad executives, willing to stoop as low as need be to score clients.  Oscar-nominated for story/screenplay, this battle of the sexes features loads of innuendo and plenty of tension as to the keeping of Doris's virtue intact.  In April, Miss Day celebrated the big 9-0. Congratulations.  (1961) 107 Min. Not Rated

AUG. 4 - KEY LARGO (Warner Bros.) Maxwell Anderson wrote the play that inspired this claustrophobic suspense tale of a WWII vet forced into a confrontation with a ruthless gangster and his gang.  It all plays out at a seedy Florida hotel during hurricane season.  John Huston directed Humphrey Bogart, Lauren Bacall (her last film with Bogey), Claire Trevor (an Oscar win) and Lionel Barrymore.  The film, however, belongs to tough-guy Edward G. Robinson, as volatile gangster Johnny Rocco, a villain for all seasons. (1948) 100 Min. Not Rated

AUG. 11-A SOLDIER'S STORY (Sony/ Columbia) This tense murder-mystery is set on a Louisiana military base in the 1940's.  An unpopular sergeant has turned up dead and a black army lawyer from up north leads the inquiry.  Based on a Pulitzer Prize-winning play, it was an Oscar nominee for Best Picture, Best Screenplay and for the performance of Adolph CaesarHoward Rollins Jr. and Denzel Washington star.  Shot in Arkansas, then governor Bill Clinton provided soldiers from the state's National Guard as extras.  (1984) 101 Min. PG Rated
