Free outdoor movies return to NoMa

What: Free outdoor movies
Where: The field on L Street between 2nd and 3rd streets NE
When: Every Wednesday night. You can arrive starting at 7 p.m., but the movie doesn’t begin until dark.

Summer in D.C. can be expensive, but the city does have options for those who maybe have already spent more than they had budgeted for two months ago. While many festivals are winding down, the NoMa Summer Screen still has six more movies scheduled for the coming weeks.

The NoMa Business Improvement District, which hosts the 13-week outdoor film series in the North of Massachusetts Avenue neighborhood, chose “unlikely friendships” as this year’s theme

Arrive early and have a picnic with your friends, or bring a lawn chair and enjoy some White House White Cheddar popcorn from the Popped! Republic food truck. Either way, you’ll spend less money than you would on that 100th Sweetgreen salad this summer, and you’ll get to see a movie for free.

Here is the line up for the remaining weeks of Summer Screen:

July 9: “The Muppets”
July 16: “The Perks of Being a Wallflower”
July 23: “The Dark Knight”
July 30: “Pitch Perfect”
August 6: “Top Gun”
August 13: “The Sandlot”
