Summer is blockbuster season—and who doesn’t love a good monster movie? In keeping with the theme of the current exhibition Dragons, Nagas, and Creatures of the Deep, The Textile Museum is screening The Host. This contemporary Korean film begins with a chemical dump in the Han River, which grows a hideous water monster that terrorizes Seoul. It is up to a humble snack-shop family to save their daughter and the city—but how will they do it? Chills, comic-relief, and sleek special effects make this a monster flick that can be enjoyed by all. Come before sunset to enjoy drinks, music, and the chance to “meet” the good-willed dragons on view in the galleries. Bring your own snacks, or purchase steamed buns by People’s Bao.
Visitors to this PM @ The TM will also be able to visit and interact with a panel of the AIDS Memorial Quilt, on view for just 1 week (July 21-27).
Promotional partners: The Pink Line Project and Washington Film Institute. This event is made possible in part by a grant from Advisory Neighborhood Commission 2D. Rain date: August 2.

"I looked at the new brochures for the Deanwood and Civil Rights Heritage Trails. I am always astonished and amazed at the work you do and the quality of it. Beautiful."
