Looking for something to do this weekend in Chevy Chase? We have you covered!
The Avalon Theatre (5612 Connecticut Avenue NW)
This weekend at the Avalon Theatre, catch two of the most highly-anticipated films of the year! Spencer, starring Kristen Stewart, is a reimagining from Pablo Larraín of what could have been for Princess Diana. And, of course, Wes Anderson’s The French Dispatch is a star-studded film bringing to life a collection of stories from the final issue of an American magazine published in a fictional 20th-century France. If you’re feeling more comfortable staying at home, Keyboard Fantasies: The Beverly Glenn-Copeland Story opens November 5th and is able to be rented online. This touching movie tells the story of a black transgender septuagenarian (and musical genius) who finally finds his place in the world.
