Movies on the Memorial

Grab a blanket or chair, and relax under the stars Thursday evenings with the Lone Sailor at Movies on the Memorial - a summertime* series of Navy-themed film classics that celebrate our rich maritime heritage.  We've selected the ultimate lineup - classics like The Caine Mutiny and crowd favorites like Top Gun - for film lovers and naval enthusiasts to enjoy on our spacious outdoor plaza.  

*Memorial Day to Labor Day

Movies begin at dusk, but we encourage you to arrive early to get a prime spot on the Granite Sea.  Concessions will be sold in the Navy Memorial Visitor Center.  In the case of inclement weather, movies will be shown in the Burke Theater inside the Visitor Center at 8pm.
