What: Looking for something to do with the whole family? Head down to the West Vancouver Memorial Library for their summer movie matinee. Today’s movie is Paddington Bear, a movie about an Peruvian bear’s adventures in England, and it’s way funnier and more entertaining than you would expect.
Where: West Vancouver Memorial Library – 1950 Marine Drive, West Vancouver
What: That’s right, Theory of a Deadman is still kicking. Take this opportunity to check out everyone’s older brother’s favourite band at the Hard Rock Casino. It’ll be like middle school/high school/college all over again.
Where: Hard Rock Casino Vancouver – 2080 United Boulevard, Coquitlam
What: Looking for something a little more modern? Imagine Dragons comes to Rogers Arena, bringing the restless music festival hordes with them. There’s no tent city, but it’ll be so dark you won’t even notice.
Where: Rogers Arena – 800 Griffiths Way, Vancouver
What: One of Vancouver’s most fun independent shows, Jokes Please! brings local professional and amateur stand-up comedians, and a few special guests, together for your entertainment. With hosts Ivan Decker, Ross Dauk, and Andy Kallstrom keeping things moving and fun, this is a show you shouldn’t miss.
Where: The Little Mountain Gallery – 195 East 26th Avenue, Vancouver
What: The hottest summer on record can only be honoured one way: a movie about the sun-blasted hellscape that is future Australia. Gasoline, leather, mutated rock monsters, ill-advised body modifications; it is a future as exciting as it is terrifying.
Where: The Rio Theatre – 1660 East Broadway Street, Vancouver
When: Thursday, July 30; 6:45 p.m.
