Nostalgia and Nature
Every summer, our pool hosts a couple of movie nights. We stretch out on lawn chairs with popcorn and blankets and watch The Princess Bride for the 100th time.
Why do we love watching movies outdoors?
It could be a shout out to the good ol' days or a contemporary twist on communing with nature. Whatever it is-outdoor movie watching is popular. If you love it or want to try it for the first time, try a few of these Outdoor movies in Virginia, Maryland and Washington DC.
