Adams Morgan Movie Nights: SPACE @ Marie Reed Recreation Center

Adams Morgan Movie Nights celebrates the 50th anniversary of the moon landing with five space-themed films in collaboration with the Smithsonian’s National Air and Space Museum.

On five Tuesday evenings from May 21 to June 18, grab a blanket, a friend, and eats from a neighborhood restaurant to watch films under the twinkling lights of the city. On select evenings (May 21 and June 11), experts and staff from the National Air and Space Museum will discuss the science behind the films and set up telescopes for on-site viewing (clouds permitting). Several restaurants on the surrounding blocks will be offering special “Brown Bag Movie Meals” packaged to go.

Movies are shown at dark at the Marie Reed Recreation Center at 18th and California Streets, NW. Bring your chairs, kids and neighbors for a fun evening out. Dogs are not allowed on the turf field. The Marie Reed Elementary School PTA will be selling refreshments; proceeds benefit the PTA. Visit for details.
