National Harbor is bringing back its popular Movies on the Potomac series, running now through Sept. 29, including free date-night movies on Thursdays at 7 p.m. and free family flicks on Sundays at 6 p.m.

“We are so excited about our movie lineup this year,” National Harbor marketing assistant vice president Jackie Saunders said. “We have some really big blockbusters along with popular classics. ‘Movies on the Potomac’ has become the perfect destination for families on Sundays and date night or friend gatherings on Thursdays. We recommend attendees bring a blanket and carryout food from one of our many restaurants.”

The next date night is this Thursday, May 9, with James Cameron’s Oscar-winning blockbuster “Titanic” (1997), which fittingly coincides with the Titanic Exhibit at National Harbor through May 12.
