This weekend is all about the music. Celebrate the arts with National Dance Day at the Kennedy Center and a Billy Joel concert. Venture outside the District for more performances.
Rosslyn Cinema Outdoor Movie Festival
If you’ve ever wanted to lie on a blanket underneath the stars while watching a classic film, now is your chance. The Rosslyn Cinema Outdoor Movie Festival is showing “Top Gun” for free, but bring some cash if you want to get snacks from the nearby barbecue and tapas food trucks. You can either take the Metro one stop west of the Foggy Bottom station or walk across Key Bridge to the park.
Gateway Park. 1300 Lee Hwy., Rosslyn, Va. Dusk. Free.
Cirque du Soleil
Marvel at Cirque du Soleil’s “Kurios: Cabinet of Curiosities.” Become mystified and entangled in the story of an inventor who distorts perspectives and turns the world upside down. A 25-minute bus ride from campus will get you close to the venue.
