The showings will be in the same location as last year, at the former parking lot at 555 Monroe Ave. NW.
All events are free and open to the public.
Gates open at 6 p.m., with pre-movie entertainment hosted by Gabrielle de la Vega of WYCE’s El Mundo Musical and DJ AB. The first movie starts at 7:30 p.m., followed by a short intermission and then the second film.
