Union Market’s Drive-In Movie Series Kicks Off May 11 with ‘Indiana Jones'

The family-friendly film series will run through November on the first Friday of the month

Union Market's popular Drive-In Movie Series returns this Spring with a special screening of Indiana Jones: Raiders of the Lost Ark on Friday, May 11 at 8 PM. The Harrison Ford classic will officially kick off the annual Americana-inspired drive-in experience held in the Market’s parking lot (1309 5th Street, NE) and projected onto the wall. Each family-friendly showing is free for walk-up film fans viewing in the picnic area, or costs $10 per car.

While enjoying films like box office smash Black Panther (August 3) or feel-good family flick Cool Runnings (October 5), DC’s cinephiles and retro fanatics can munch and sip on theater-quality delectables delivered on wheels by The DC Rollergirls. Since launching in 2012, the Union Market Drive-In Series has drawn large crowds of eager moviegoers looking for communal fun with a touch of kitsch.
