The Details & FAQs:
Shows take place on Transit Pier (970 Wharf Street SW) next to Cantina Bambina and across from the Anthem.
Each reservation includes one fire pit, which seats up to four people. If you have up to four people in your group, you only need one ticket.
If you have a larger group you may purchase additional fire pits.
Children under the age of three may sit on their parent’s lap but per DC’s COVID guidelines, no more than six people may sit together – this includes children of all ages.
You can purchase food and drinks (beer, wine, hot toddies and Pepsi products) from the Cantina Bambina snack window to enjoy at your fire pit.
You may bring food from a Wharf restaurant into the movie – a list of retailers with good options is included in your confirmation email.
Please remain in your seat unless you are going to get food or use the restroom – you must be masked at all times when not eating and drinking.
You are welcome to bring a blanket with you.
The fire pits are for keeping warm—no cooking or making s’mores. If you would like to make s’mores, please visit Camp Wharf at the Firepit which is open during the 2020 Holiday Season.
Tickets are non-refundable and non-transferrable between screenings. If we cancel a screening, we will reach out to attendees and offer the option for a refund or the conversion of their ticket price to a donation to the USO of Metro Washington – Baltimore.
