WASHINGTON, DC, April 28 2022 — The Adams Morgan Partnership Business Improvement District (BID) is thrilled to announce the return of the celebrated community series: Adams Morgan Movie Nights with title sponsor Gifted Curators! Kicking off May 24, every Tuesday night through June 21 head to Marie Reed Field at 18th and California to enjoy the warm weather and a great movie. 

Movies will kick-off just after sunset. Attendees are encouraged to bring their own blankets and pick-up dinner from a neighborhood restaurant to enjoy during the film. Want to dine in? Visit one of the dozens of Adams Morgan restaurants serving global eats, affordable bites, or Michelin-starred meals!


As we welcome summer to DC and all the adventures that come with it, the theme of the movie series this year is “The Road Less Traveled”  – offering stories that speak to personal identities, exploration, and epic quests!

This year, special for Pride Week, the Adams Morgan Partnership BID will be showing Queen of the Capital from local documentary maker Josh Davidsburg. The film chronicles Muffy Blake Stephyns, a DC bureaucrat by day and drag queen by night. 

What’s a movie without popcorn? Gifted Curators will be popping hot & fresh popcorn for each showing. Insomnia Cookies in Adams Morgan is generously providing individually-wrapped, hot-out-of-the-oven, cookies to guests on a first-come-first-serve basis at each movie. Be sure to arrive early to set up your space on the field and get your cookie!

June 28 is being held as a rain date if one of the showings is canceled due to inclement weather. Please note that alcohol and pets are not permitted on the field.
