The Union Market has a giant white wall facing a parking lot. It’s perfect for showing movies.
So film activist Jon Gann pitched the idea of a drive-in to the market and to D.C. Arts Commission and a summer treat resulted.
For the next four Fridays, 140 cars can park and watch. If you don't have a car, you can sit in a picnic area close to the screen.
And get this: The D.C. Arts Commission picked up the bill to promote the neighborhood, so it's a free event.
