The Crystal City BID hosts a free outdoor film festival every Tuesday in September. With the help of Moonflicks, a courtyard in Crystal City is transformed into a movie theater. There is no better place to meet friends, bring a picnic, and enjoy an evening under the stars.

The Crystal Screen Sips & Sweets movie festival joins our Sip Your Way Through September (aka SIP-tember) line-up which includes the annual Sip and Salsa on Sunday, September 11th, Pups and Pilsners on Sunday, September 18th, and Wine in the Water Park every Friday throughout September.

Movies will be shown every Tuesday evening shortly after sunset on the lawn at 1901 S. Bell Street. Bring a picnic or take-out from area restaurants and enjoy sips from the pop-up wine bar (cash) with hand-selected offerings from the Crystal City Wine Shop and tasty sweet samples from Crystal City’s Schakolad.
