Union Market’s Drive-In Theatre Is Back Again

On Friday, July 1, 2016, at 8PM Union Market will kick off the latest iteration of its wildly popular drive-in movie series, with classic American films shown on the market’s three-story wall.  The popular UM Drive In Summer Series has brought in immense crowds since its inception in 2012. The throwback event offers a summer retreat for those looking for communal fun and vintage kitsch.


 This season’s films include Top Gun, Ratatouille, Grease, and Ghostbusters.

Movie lovers and retro fanatics alike can munch on theater worthy delectables such as fried chicken biscuits from the Mason Dixie food truck and popcorn from Stella’s Popkern. The DC Rollergirls will be on hand delivering snacks and drinks on wheels.

The fare is $10 per car, or free in the picnic area for walk-ups & bikers on a first come, first serve basis.
