It’s a busy week for free events in the area. In anticipation of “Skyfall,” the newest chapter in the James Bond franchise opening Friday, check out a double feature of Bond films at the Library of Congress’ Packard Campus this week. The next night, you can watch the returns and hear live jazz at the Kennedy Center. Here’s your free itinerary for the week:
If you’re missing the leaves that Sandy blew away, you still have one more day to catch the “Fall Reflections” exhibit at the Artists’ Undertaking Gallery. The show features copper mirrors by Anne Jordan of Fairfax and paintings in fall color schemes by Steve Myles of Oakton.
On election night, the Kennedy Center is offering something a little different: Watch the results and a performance at the same time. Jason Moran & the Bandwagon performs in the Grand Foyer along with fiddler Tad Marks, guitarist Zan McLeod and others.
‘On Labor: A Visual Dialogue’ opening reception
The Art Museum of the Americas hosts an opening reception for a new labor-themed photography exhibit by Guatemalan artist Jaime Permuth and American artist Ian Wagreich. A talk by Rodrigo Vielmann, Guatemala’s ambassador to the Organization of American States, kicks things off.
Gearing up for “Skyfall,” the new Bond movie that opens Friday? Brush up on your Daniel Craig-era Bond with back-to-back screenings of “Casino Royale” and “Quantum of Solace,” the first two films with Craig in the role of 007.
It’s time to start ice skating. To celebrate the Rockville Town Square Ice Rink’s second year, the rink is putting on a free laser and fireworks show, with music by the Dan Haas Trio. The first 500 skaters also get a free pair of ear warmers.
You’ll find all kinds of Danish holiday goodies at this annual bazaar, including embroidery, shrubbery and pastries, and there also are plenty of free activities to entertain the kids.
The first in a two-part homage to French filmmaker Chris Marker, “A Bientot J’espere” gives a unique window into workforce unrest in 1960s France. The film is centered around workers on strike at a textile plant in the city of Besancon leading up to the revolutionary protests of May 1968.
