what's up the pike: they paved paradise . . .

Pyramid Atlantic
The parking lot where the Screen on the Lot series begins tonight.

- Tonight's the first night of Screen on the Lot, the Pyramid Atlantic Arts Center's new outdoor film series. First up is School of Rock starring Jack Black, which starts at 9pm in the parking lot of Pyramid Atlantic, located at the corner of Georgia Avenue and Ripley Street in Downtown Silver Spring. [Thanks to the Singular for the heads-up.]

- And Tomorrow, planning for the new Silver Spring Library at Wayne Avenue and Fenton Street continues with a charrette, or public workshop. The meeting is from 7-9pm at the current Silver Spring Library, located at 8901 Colesville Road just north of Downtown.

- In the wake of last month's tragic Metro crash at Fort Totten, two East County residents - one from Silver Spring and one from Burtonsville - have filed suit against WMATA and Jeanice McMillan, the dead operator of one of the trains involved in the collision.

- People living in Takoma, D.C. were startled when Montgomery County cops stormed their neighborhood on a . . . fake police raid for a documentary. Like everyone who erroneously refers to the "Takoma Park Metro station," the Silver Spring-based film company doing the project thought they were actually in Takoma Park, Maryland.

I canNOT believe they actually thought they were in MD - everyone one of those MC cops would know better and so would most of the local crew. Someone is telling flat out lies and "playing dumb."
