Union Market Drive-In Is Back!

Union Market kicks off its monthly drive-in movie series this Friday, April 7 at 8pm with feature presentation The Royal Tenenbaums. The special screening marks the start of Union Market’s annual classic American drive-in experience, which in partnership with Getaround, is held in the parking lot (1305 5th Street NE) and projected onto the market’s wall. Each family-friendly showing is free for walk-up film fans in the picnic area, or costs $10 per car.


Movie lovers and retro fanatics alike can munch on theater-quality delectables while The DC Rollergirls will be on hand delivering snacks and drinks on wheels. The always-popular drive-in movie series has brought in consistent crowds since its inception in 2012, with the throwback event offering a unique retreat for those looking for communal fun and vintage kitsch.
