From the Capitol Riverfront BID:

“Grab your popcorn! The Capitol Riverfront BID will host a special drive-in movie theater experience, set to launch Sept 25 and run until October 30 at the Akridge Lot in Buzzard Point. Located at 100 V Street SW, the Capitol Riverfront Drive-in will transform the Buzzard Point parking lot into an outdoor cinema with six showings of hit movies. Beginning today, Washingtonians can visit riverfrontdrivein.eventbrite.com to register for select date(s) – space is limited to 75 cars per movie, so guests are encouraged to register early.

“We recognize the challenges the District has faced over the last few months, and we wanted to create an experience where residents and visitors alike could gather for an entertaining activity while still maintaining a safe distance,” said Michael Stevens Capitol Riverfront BID president. “The Drive-in is one small way we’re supporting the communities we serve.”

The family-friendly contact-free experience will launch with Selma, a film honoring the legacy of the late Congressman John Lewis and the Voting Rights marches, a historic movement that still resonates with the Black Lives Matter movement today. Read More
