Adams Morgan Movie Nights will return in the Spring of 2023 with another great lineup!

Adams Morgan Movie Nights 2022

Voted as one of the best outdoor movie series in DC by readers of the Washington City Paper, Adams Morgan Movie Nights is a can’t-miss event!
This year’s series focuses on “The Road Less Traveled,” showcasing movies that find our heroes on a quest of one sort or another. This year’s lineup:
  • May 24: The Princess Bride
  • May 31: Monty Python and the Holy Grail
  • June 7: Queen of the Capital rained out
  • June 14: Keanu
  • June 21: Encanto
  • June 28: Queen of the Capital [RESCHEDULED from 6/7]
Adams Morgan Movie Nights will kick off on Tuesday, May 24 and continue with weekly screenings on Tuesday nights through June 21. Movies are free and are shown on the soccer field at Marie Reed School.
Important notes:
  • Pets and alcohol are not allowed on the field per DPR/DCPS rules. Service animals are allowed.
  • All movies are presented with subtitles/closed captioning if available
Please note that the film will start 20 to 30 minutes after sunset — usually around 9pm — but guests are encouraged to arrive earlier to find a good spot to sit.
Our outdoor film series continues the rich cultural history of the community – the classic theaters of Adams Morgan were once the place to go to see first-run Hollywood films. Movie Nights brings residents and visitors together, activating the Adams Morgan neighborhood. Adams Morgan Movie Nights attracts thousands of people for one of Washington’s favorite summer traditions: films under the stars.
Big thanks go out to this year’s sponsors, including Gifted Curators, The Rounds, The Silva,Wegmans, the DCOffice of Cable Television, Film, Music & Entertainment (OCTFME), and yes, Insomnia Cookies will be back again this year with free cookies if you get there early enough.
This season is going to be great! You won’t want to miss it.
