Georgetown Sunset Cinema Last Weeks

In honor of the National Park Service's centennial milestone, Georgetown’s 2016 Sunset Cinema movie series is featuring iconic movies filmed in and featuring national parks and monuments across the country.

The movies are shown at the beautiful Georgetown Waterfront Park, a national park managed by the National Park Service. It links 225 miles of parkland along the Potomac River stretching from Cumberland, MD to Mount Vernon, VA, creating a delightful and serene refuge in the heart of energetic Georgetown.

The five-week series makes a stop in each decade from the 1960s to the 2000s. Grab a blanket and head to the Georgetown Waterfront Park to catch the season's final three movies:
