Wednesdays, May 27 – August 19
Enjoy a number of outdoor movies in DC’s business improvement district. This event is held in a large grassy area, so feel free to bring blankets, chairs, or whatever will make your viewing enjoyable. Outdoor movies are great for family fun and even date night! Before each screening there will be live DJs, special guests, barbecue, and so much more. This year’s theme will be “Dance, Dance, Dance” so each screening will be a dance related flick.
