Let’s roll down the windows, feel that warm breeze and turn up the radio because the 11th Annual Drive-In at Union Market is back. A DC “must-do,” the series of eight movies launches April 7, and will continue on the first and third Friday of every month through July 21st.

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: Lebanese-inspired kabab shop Yasmine, homemade ice cream from The Creamery at Union Market, creative cocktails from Suburbia and more Union Market favorites.

Alcohol purchased from Market vendors is permitted on Neal Place. Alcohol is not allowed in the parking lot. For those on foot, pack your chairs and blankets and set up shop in front of Union Market for great views and picnic-style entertainment. Tickets are not required to watch on Neal Place.

Movie audio will be transmitted through an FM transmitter on the radio and through speakers placed on Neal Place. As always, all movies are shown with open captioning. The movie plays rain or shine!

Each movie showing costs $20 per car. “Sold Out” means that all 170 parking spaces have been reserved. All sales are final, no refunds issued.
