With the summer recess just around the corner, Capitol tourism officials are hoping people will stay at the Capitol for a day or two to take in the spectacle of the iconic Capitol dome.
The dome is often used as a backdrop for movie screenings, but it is also a major tourist attraction for visitors to the Capitol.
That’s where the popular “Wacky Houses” films are being staged.
“We are trying to put these films together so people can have a nice day in the sun with their families and enjoy the Capitol and Capitol history,” said Capitol tourism manager Lauren Leung.
“These films are great for a nice afternoon of sunshine.”
A series of themed “Wackies” films will be screened at the U.S. Capitol from July 10 to July 14.
Visitors can view them on July 9 at the visitor center or July 10 at the Visitors Center.
Leung said they are doing this because of the popularity of the Capitol dome and the Capitol’s unique design.
“It’s so beautiful,” Leung told The Washington Times.
“Wacked House” is a 90-minute film in which people are dressed in costume and trying to escape a building fire. “
You want to have something that you can bring to your family and your friends.”
“Wacked House” is a 90-minute film in which people are dressed in costume and trying to escape a building fire.
It features scenes from the 1970s, 1980s, and 1990s.
The film was filmed by the National Endowment for the Arts and the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture.
Lept said the theme is about the power of art.
“I don’t think that’s going to change anytime soon, but you want to make sure that the arts are part of the fabric of the building, because it’s such a beautiful building,” she said.
“There are so many ways to make people feel comfortable and have a good time.”
“The Capitol’s in the middle of all this, and people are always trying to get into the Capitol, and I think people just want to experience the building,” Lept added.
“WACKIES” is the third film to be screened during the summer break, following “The Muppets” and “The Wizard of Oz.”
Lept and Leung hope the films will help tourists and lawmakers enjoy the sights, sounds, and smells of the U,S.
Constitution and Capitol Hill.
“They will be there and they will be in the place, but I think that the public is really looking forward to the movie,” Lepton said.
The Wacky Houses films will begin July 10 and run through July 14 at the Visitor Center, Visitors Center, and Visitors Center at the Smithsonian Institution.
