I love a good outdoor screening, so when I saw National Harbor announced the return of its popular Movies on the Potomac series, May 1–Sept. 30, every Thursday at 7 p.m., “date night,” and every Sunday at 6 p.m. for “family night,” I had to share!

The Plaza Screen on the waterfront will show recent releases and classic films, and attendees can bring chairs and order take-out from one of the many surrounding restaurants. All screenings are free to attend.

Each month of movies boasts a different theme, as well. Here’s a sampling:

May’s Animal Movies include
Babe
101 Dalmatians
Best in Show
Jaws

June’s Travel Movies include
The Parent Trap
Are We There Yet?
Crazy Rich Asians
Under the Tuscan Sun

July’s Food Movies include
Ratatouille
Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory
No Reservations
Julie & Julia

August’s Musical Movies include
Newsies
Annie
In the Heights
Hairspray

And September’s America-themed movies include
A League of Their Own
An American Tail
Argo
Apollo 13

The screenings are held outdoors, and movie times and dates may be changed or cancelled due to weather. Follow National Harbor on social media for updates.
