Adams Morgan Announces 5th Annual Summer Movie Nights

Tuesdays, May 29, 2018 - June 12, 2018
From: 07:30 PM to 11:00 PM

Adams Morgan Movie Nights kick off May 15, a favorite neighborhood tradition that attracts filmgoers from around the region. On five Tuesday evenings from May 15 to June 12, grab a blanket, a friend, and eats from a neighborhood restaurant to watch films under the twinkling lights of the city. Movies are shown at dark at the Marie Reed Recreation Center at 18th and California Streets, NW.

This year’s lineup includes favorites for all ages, including the Dude (The Big Lebowski’s iconic character), Frozen Fever (from Pixar’s celebrated animated short films), and the little-known story of the female African American mathematicians at NASA during the space race (Hidden Figures). The screening of Jackie highlights the 50th anniversary of the assassination of Robert F. Kennedy, which took place on June 5, 1968.

The full lineup:

  • May 15: Pixar Shorts collection (Featuring a selection of Pixar’s short films ranging from some of their earliest, groundbreaking work to more contemporary shorts)

  • May 22: The Big Lebowski (1998)

  • May 29: Hairspray (2007)

  • June 5: Jackie (2016)

  • June 12: Hidden Figures (2016)

The films are screened at dark at the Marie Reed Recreation Center. Bring your chairs, kids and neighbors for a fun evening out. Dogs are not allowed on the turf field. Life of Riley will offer ‘dog valet’ services to dog-sit during the film for a heavily discounted fee; reservations required. The Marie Reed Elementary School PTA will be selling refreshments; proceeds benefit the PTA. Details at
