The Comcast Outdoor Film Festival is a free drive-in movie event held on the grounds of the old Rockville Drive-In that closed in 1981. The fun begins before the credits roll with music, food, and children’s activities including inflatables and carnival games. Food and snacks will be for sale with a portion of the proceeds benefiting the NIH Children's Charities - Children's Inn, Camp Fantastic/Special Love, and Friends of the Clinical Center.
Admission is free. Blankets and lawn chairs are permitted so you can sit under the stars up front or view from the comfort of your vehicle. There are two types of seating: drive-in (capacity 180 cars) and bring your own seating up front. There is overflow parking for cars that cannot fit into the main viewing area.
