Merriweather Movie Nights: Encanto

DCACC brings you a night under the stars at one of the East Coast's best outdoor venues, Merriweather Post Pavilion. Grab a seat under the pavilion or bring blankets, pillows, and chairs for the lawn, and get ready to watch some of your favorite films!

Encanto tells the tale of an extraordinary family, the Madrigals, who live hidden in the mountains of Colombia, in a magical house, in a vibrant town, in a wondrous, charmed place called an Encanto. The magic of the Encanto has blessed every child in the family with a unique gift from super strength to the power to heal-every child except one, Mirabel. But when she discovers that the magic surrounding the Encanto is in danger, Mirabel decides that she, the only ordinary Madrigal, might just be her exceptional family's last hope.
