The Esplanade: Movies on the Potomac

Enjoy a Night Out at Inner Harbor and Check out Movies on the Potomac

How does a free date night sound to you? Yes, you read that correctly, we mean free! Come out to the Movies on the Potomac at the National Harbor in Baltimore, MD, and watch a good movie with some even better scenery! This spring and summer, you can enjoy a free presentation of various different films every Thursday or Sunday night. Thursday nights are reserved for date nights, with special movie features like dream horse, and must-love dogs and Sundays are for the kids with movies like Babe, Sing 2, and the ultimate classic, The Lion King. 

Bring your own cozy blankets and lawn chairs, pick up some delicious food to go from one of the many different restaurants downtown, and kick back for a peaceful movie night on the river. If that’s not fun enough for you, each month features a different theme for the movies being shown. May is animal-themed movie night, June is a travel theme, July is food movies and August is for musicals. 

Join the fun on any one of the many different summer nights that these movies will be offered and check out the website online at for the full list of movies and times.
