The list of movies that will be screened outdoors in NoMa this summer has been released.

Earlier this month, the NoMa Business Improvement District, which hosts the annual outdoor film series, asked residents to vote for which movies would make the list. The theme of this year’s series is “Choose Your Own Adventure,” and voters chose a wide range of adventures, including “Princess Bride,” “Fast Five” and “O Brother, Where Art Thou?”.

Organizers also added a special screening of “Purple Rain” starring Prince on Tuesday, June 7.

Here’s the full film schedule for this year’s series:

  • “Indiana Jones: Raiders of the Lost Ark” on June 1
  • “Purple Rain” on June 7
  • “Princess Bride” on June 8
  • “Guardians of the Galaxy” on June 15
  • “Jumanji” on June 22
  • “Fast Five” on June 29
  • “Pee Wee’s Big Adventure” on July 6
  • “Life of Pi” on July 13
  • “O Brother, Where Art Thou?” on July 20
  • “E.T.” on July 27
  • “Apollo 13” on Aug. 3
  • “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” on Aug. 10

All of the screenings will be held in the Storey Park lot at 1st and L streets NE. Gates to the park will open at 7 and movies will start at sunset.
