One of the most popular summertime events in Vancouver is back! The Chevron Summer Cinema Series at Stanley Park – “in the park after dark” free outdoor movies – returns every Tuesday from July 8 to September 2.
Second Beach’s Ceperley Meadows will be outfitted with a four storey inflatable movie screen, transforming it into an outdoor cinema. Their crews transform Stanley Park’s Ceperely Meadow (between Second Beach Pool and the children’s playground) into a magical custom made outdoor movie theatre in a matter of hours.
Once again, Vancity Buzz is proud to be the exclusive Online Media Partner with Fresh Air Cinema.
As a general reminder, please bring your own blankets and/or lawn chairs. Please also keep in mind that this is a family friendly event – smoking or alcohol is not permitted. Guests are encouraged to walk, take transit or ride a bike to the show. There will be a bike valet service offered on site each night well.
If you want a good spot to watch the evening flick, be sure to come early as upwards to 5,000 people will attend the screenings every night.
“Stanley Park is the jewel in the crown of Vancouver, and has proven to be one of the most perfect locations to host a free summer movie night that the whole family can enjoy,” remarked Jason Bashnick, Fresh Air Cinema festival organizer. “For the past five years, we have seen well over, 5,000 people per night attending these events, people simply love the experience of watching a free movie under the stars. This year is going to be bigger, and even better-with many brand-new activities and one of the best movie lineups we’ve ever curated. There’ll be something special for everyone.”
New this season, Fresh Air Cinema has created an 80 seat reserved VIP area where guests can reserve front row Adirondack chair and enjoy a guaranteed seat at any movie night, with partial proceeds from seat sales going to the Vancouver Firefighters Charitable Society. In a partnership with several restaurants in the West End BIA, the festival will also be offering nightly “Dinner & a Movie” packages with a three course dinner and a reserved seat at the show for one low price. These special seating programs go on sale for all films starting Monday, June 16 at www.summercinema.ca.

Start times: At Dusk. Check sunset times as that will be your best indication of when the movie will start. Of course, this is also weather dependent.
