Union Market to Kick-Off Monthly Summer Drive-In Series

The series will be held on the first Friday of every month from July through October

Union Market, northeast D.C’s vibrant district, will kick-off its drive-in movie summer series on Friday, July 1, 2016 at 8:00 PM. This classic American treat will take place in Union Market’s parking lot and will project the feature presentation, Top Gun, onto the market's three-story wall. The family-friendly series is $10 per car or free for walk-ups in the picnic area. The series will be held on the first Friday of every month from July through October.

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 snack and drinks on wheels.

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.
