Yo Adrian, I’m on Screen on the Green!

Do you remember 1976? Or better yet, do you remember the first time you saw Rocky? And I’m talking the original one, not any of the crap follow-ups.

Did it ever inspire you to run up the Philly Art Museum steps? Or localize it with a sprint up the Lincoln Memorial? Maybe, like me, you tried to chase a chicken while in training once. While I remember that day every time I have a drumstick, here’s your opportunity to have your own Rocky memory:

Monday, in the last Party Scene of Screen on the Green, they will be showing the original Rocky on the National Mall around sunset. Grab your blankets, picnic, and popcorn, Rocky Balboa is coming to town!

    ‘Cuz I was such a wuss and stayed away from the last few Mondays due to the heat and humidity, Rocky will get me out rain or shine. And it’s the last one for the summer! I don’t wanna be one of the “coconuts on the corner” so I’ll be there!

    First saw Rocky in my pajama’s at a drive-in movie… Sounds romantic right? Except that they were “footy pj’s”
    Ah, after so many years, together again under the stars with an Italian Stallion. Should be a lot of fun

    P.S. Great graphic, where’d you get it ; )
