Golden Cinema is a free 10 week long outdoor movie series that is hosted by the Golden Triangle BID. Every Friday beginning late May and running through July, everyone is invited to enjoy free movies in Farragut Park. Since its inception in 2013, the number of movie-goers has grown — hundreds of people attend each movie under the stars.
Movies begin at sunset as the concluding event of the Farragut Fridays event series, which includes an outdoor office space, picnics in Farragut Park, lawn games, and table tennis competitions. This event series provides lively entertainment and activities in Farragut Park from 9 a.m. through the conclusion of Golden Cinema around 11 p.m.
On May 20, Golden Cinema kicks off with a “Hail to the Chief” theme in honor of the presidential election this year. Your work week is ending just in time to catch your favorite films.
