The Home Rule Music and Film Preservation Foundation is proud to produce the second season of Movies on the Lawn. Our Summer 2022 season will run from July-October at The Parks at Historic Walter Reed, and will consist of four evenings of live music, engaging and entertaining family-friendly films, and food and beverage offerings from some of the most exciting vendors in DC. 

Our first season welcomed an average of 500+ guests a night to The Parks at Walter Reed's Great Lawn, where audiences enjoyed the movies Soul, Get on Up, and Queen of Katwe. Our musical pairings brought The National Symphony Orchestra Quartet, DJ John Murph, Butcher Brown, and Dev Duff to The Parks, and our vendors Anxo Cider, Everyday Sundae, and J&J Taqueria allowed our guests to indulge and relax during the course of the evening. 

The mission of Movies on the Lawn is an extension of the Home Rule Music and Film Preservation Foundation's purpose: to promote, support and preserve DC music and film through performance, education and advocacy. 

Dates and Films:  July 23 - HIDDEN FIGURES; August 6 - GOONIES; September 17 - RESPECT; October 15 - ENCANTO.
