A “Drive-In” That You Don’t HAVE to Drive In – EXTENDED

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 Bombfollows July 19th with Distinguished GentlemanJuly 26th with The American Presidentand finishes August 2nd with No Way Out.

*The Encore Series follows with Caddy Shack on October 4th (National Golf Day), Julie and Julia on October 11th (National Cookbook Launch Day), Good Will Hunting on October 18th (National No Beard Day), Evan Almighty on November 1st (All Saint’s Day), and finally a People’s Choice by social media vote on November 8th.

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.
