Falls Church’s Annual ‘Sunset Cinema’ Returns With Social Distancing

Falls Church’s Sunset Cinema is coming back for its 17th year with new safety measures due to the coronavirus pandemic. 

The annual event screens movies at Cherry Hill Park. This year, the movies will start at 7:45 on Fridays.

The event will be held in a socially distant format with spots marked across the lawn. Up to 20 households are permitted, and people must bring their own seats, blankets, snacks and masks, the city recently announced. 

The movie lineup is:

  • Sept. 18: “Moana” 
  • Sept. 25: “Onward” 
  • Oct. 2: “Remember the Titans” 

People must pre-register for the free movies. Registration for city residents starts on Monday, Aug. 24, and on Monday, Aug. 31, for non-city residents. Households can only register for one Sunset Cinema event.

Space is available on a first-come, first-serve basis, according to the city. In the case of inclement weather, registrants will be notified of a movie make-up date.
