For those who are planning to attend the Women's March on Washington on January 21: Woolly Mammoth is going to open its doors that day from 8:30 am until 4 pm to serve as a meeting place, organizing space, and rest stop for the general public. Our theater is only a 15-minute walk or so from the March, so we hope to be a convenient gathering spot for the community. We'll have cheap hot drinks and snacks for those who need them and a welcoming, wide open lobby to share with whoever needs it. Thanks!

IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR THE WOMEN’S MARCH ON WASHINGTON If you’re planning to stop by Woolly Mammoth this Saturday, here are a few things you should know: -- We will be open from 8:30 am until 4 pm. -- We’re located at 641 D Street NW. The closest Metro stops are Archives/Navy Memorial and Gallery Place. -- We do have bathrooms, and everything is fully stocked. Our bathrooms are fully accessible, as is our entire theater. -- There will be food! Hungry Harvest has very kindly donated several hundred apples; they’ll be available first-come, first-served, for free. We’ll also be keeping our concessions stand open and selling a variety of cheap hot drinks (coffee, tea, hot chocolate) and snacks to keep everyone fortified. -- We are NOT able to store your personal belongings for you while you visit the march, unfortunately. -- We WILL have a number of free We the People posters for distribution. (Check out the Amplifier Foundation to learn more.) We may also have a number of free “pussy hats” to give out as well; we’re still working on that one. -- Although we do have to close our doors at 4 pm, we’ll be opening them again a few hours later for a free Poetry Speak-Out/Resistance Night hosted by Split This Rock at 7 pm, and we hope you’ll feel free to join us!
