The NoMa Summer Screen

The folks at are conducting a survey to select this year's movie lineup for NoMa Summer Screen. Last year, outdoor movies were shown each Wednesday at 2nd & L Streets, NE. For those of us who remember drive-in theaters in the DMV, this could prove to be a nostalgic experience. Anyone else remember the Hillside Drive-In on Marlboro Pike? For more on how to submit your choices for this year's movies, CLICK HERE. Also, check out these old-school drive-in commercials below:

DMV Development... Donohoe's H Street NE Project

Last month, we wrote a post about the H Street Storage Facility being told that their status is expected to change in April. An update from them earlier this week revealed that storage customers will be made aware of the plans in a few weeks, so if you know anyone who wants to avoid the mass exit (only two elevators), heads up! Anyways, we took this shot outside of their window today. It shows the progress being made on the Donohoe project directly across the street. According to the Donohoe website, they are working for former Olympic medalist and DMV native's JAIR LYNCH Development Partners.
