  • Geesh! All of the car reservations are gone already. I can’t tell if that is just for the first scheduled movie or all of them. I could not choose a date from the website as requested.

  • why release a press release promoting something that’s already sold out?

    • You snooze you lose

      “The DC Drive-In is sold out, BUT… don’t worry, we are only taking reservations for a portion of the lot! At 8:00pm, we will direct cars that have been waiting in line on 6th Street into any unfilled spaces.

      There is a picnic area for walkers or bikers to watch the drive-in films. First come, first serve. No reservations will be taken for the picnic area.”

  • “No Way Out” might be my favorite Kevin Costner movie. Great flick.

    • “No way Out” is streaming for free with amazon prime, watched it several days ago (thanks for the recommendation Union Market) as that is when the other DC blogs came out with this info, hence that’s why the car reservations are already filled up, this is week old news.
