Summer in NoMa: Summer Screen & Union Market Drive-In

The warmer temperatures are here to stay, summer is just around the corner, and the NoMa neighborhood is coming alive! We love summer in NoMa for a variety of reasons, but the NoMa Summer Screen and the Union Market Drive-In Movie Series are two of our favorites. With so much going on in the neighborhood, it’s time to get ready for a fun summer in NoMa!

NoMa Summer Screen


Each summer season, the NoMa BID puts on twelve Wednesday evening movie screenings for neighborhood residents to enjoy. Named as one of the Top 10 Best Outdoor Movie Theaters in America by Travel and Leisure Magazine, NoMa Summer Screen is a great way to get outside and enjoy the neighborhood, for free! Pack a picnic for the show, or grab a bite to eat at the variety of food trucks that show up each week.

NoMa Summer Screen will begin in June and run through August. The 2018 theme is Wonder Women! Get ready for a variety of noteworthy films, all of which feature a strong female lead.
