Get all nostalgic on Friday nights as Union Market hosts the inaugural ‘DC Drive-In,’ an outdoor movie series… that you don’t actually HAVE to drive in.
Union Market hosts the Capital City’s first drive-in movie experience (the closest actual Drive-In is located nearly an hour away, in Baltimore), offering classic DC-centric films on the popular food market’s large 3-story wall.
Before each FREE Friday 9 PM show, movie-goers will enjoy live music, contests and special giveaways… not to mention fun drinks and snacks from a variety of Union Market vendors. And for those who go carless, a public picnic area for bikers and walkers is available without reservation. (Reservations suggested for motorized vehicles.)
The schedule starts July 12th (see update to follow*) with a showing of Dr. Strangelove (or) How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb; follows July 19th with Distinguished Gentleman; July 26th with The American President; and finishes August 2nd with No Way Out.
The DC Drive-In is a free event made in partnership with Reel Plan and a generous grant from the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities.
