Van Ness Main Street and the University of the District of Columbia are joining forces this summer to host “Movie Night in the Park @ UDC Amphitheater". Our theme for the summer series is perseverance, and movies will be a family-friendly rating of G, PG, or PG13. Movie night reservations are required via Eventbrite but attendance is free.

We encourage everyone to bring a picnic - dinner, drinks, or snacks from one of our local eateries to enjoy before or during the film. The amphitheater will be open to begin gathering at 8 pm, with showtime scheduled for 9 pm until 7/21 - then we shift to a park opening of 7:30pm and showtime of 8:30pm on 8/11 and 8/18.

About the venue: Nestled in a hillside, the UDC Amphitheater is located in the woods off Yuma Street behind the UDC tennis courts. It is accessible via walking paths from either Yuma Street or Windom Place. We'll have signage placed along the way as well as volunteers directing movie-goers. The venue contains rows of wooden seating with some areas of grass (see photo below). Feel free to bring blankets or cushions to sit on. Please do not bring your own chair as open space is limited. Portions of the front row/area will be reserved on a first-come, first-served basis for those using a wheelchair and for those physically unable to access the upper rows.

Reserve your space: When reserving tickets for the date of the film(s) you'll be attending, please reserve the total number of people in your party. If you find that you're unable to attend, please cancel your order so we have an idea of how many people to expect, and to make the seats available for others.

Weather Policy. In case of inclement weather, the film will be canceled. Check our Facebook page and Twitter for updates: @VanNessMainSt

COVID Safety - If you or anyone in your group is displaying symptoms of or has been in contact with anyone with symptoms of COVID-19, you must stay home. This is an outdoor, mask-optional event. When you attend this event please understand that many people will not be wearing masks and decide accordingly. We will have masks on hand for those who feel more comfortable wearing one but it is not required.

Special arrangements. Portions of the front row/area will be reserved for those using a wheelchair and for those unable to access the upper rows. Availability will be on a first-come, first-served basis. English-language captions will be displayed on all films.

Security. UDC is generously providing police security during Movie Night in the Park. While food and beverages are permitted, smoking and/or vaping are strictly prohibited on the UDC campus.

Interested in being a sponsor? We'll be running a sponsor reel before the movie and we'd love to help promote your local business. Sponsors will also be mentioned in our newsletter and in social media ads promoting the films. Email info@vannessmainstreet.org for details
