Watch Your Movies Outdoors.

[ 0 ] July 13, 2016 |

Things I love about D.C.:  how retro and new school it can be at the same time.  Bringing back drive-in movies to the D.C. scene has just changed my whole date night.  Being an 80’s baby means I have no true recollection of seeing a movie in this forum, my movies have all been in air-conditioned theaters.  The things I dreamt of experiencing in movies are now coming to fruition.  Don’t have a car or are not interested in keeping it steamy in your car?  Try Washington City Paper, in partnership with Events DC, outdoor movie screenings this summer.  Deets on both below.vino
