Drive-In Movies are Back at Union Market


The 10th annual series kicks off Friday, May 13.

Washington, DC, April 14, 2022 — Union Market District’s Drive-in Movie Series is back for its tenth year! Roll down the windows, feel that summer breeze and turn up the volume for DC’s “must-do” experience. The series of six movies launches May 13, and will continue on the second Friday of every month through October 14.

This is a cinephile and foodie match made in heaven with better than average concessions. Watch movies under the stars while munching and sipping on local, regional and international foods: Great Britain’s classics by AboveGround, Japanese comfort food + Ramen from UZU, locally handcrafted donuts by District Doughnut, creative cocktails from Suburbia and more Union Market favorites.

Film lovers can drive up to Union Market (1309 5th Street NE) to catch their favorite flick projected larger than life onto the market wall. Each showing costs $20 per car and tickets can be purchased here. Audio will be transmitted through an FM radio transmitter. As always, all movies are shown with open captioning.

For those on foot, bring your chairs and blankets and set up shop in front of Union Market for great sightlines and picnic-style entertainment (no charge).
