NoMa Summer Screen Returns Next Week: New Location, Dance Films
Washington, D.C., May 21, 2015 — Summer is officially upon us: NoMa Summer Screen returns next week! Filmgoers’ choice: this year you can dance or just watch as NoMa kicks off its eighth season of NoMa Summer Screen with the 2015 theme “DANCE, DANCE, DANCE.”
