Free outdoor movies Vancouver 2016 at Stanley Park schedule

Jun 6 2016, 5:34 am

One of the most popular summertime events in Vancouver is back! The Evo Summer Cinema Series at Stanley Park – “in the park after dark” free outdoor movies – returns every Tuesday from July 5 to August 23.

The site will be outfitted with a four-storey inflatable movie screen, transforming the area into a magical outdoor cinema within a matter of hours, fit for thousands of Vancouverites to visit and watch flicks throughout the summer.

Daily Hive Vancouver is proud to be the exclusive Online Media Partner of Fresh Air Cinema, and after readers took part in our Viewers’ Choice Flick Pick contest, the 2004 hit comedy Napoleon Dynamite has come out on top to make this year’s movie lineup.

As a general reminder, please bring your own blankets and/or lawn chairs and, since it’s a family-friendly event, smoking or alcohol is not permitted. Movie goers are encouraged to walk, take transit, or bike out to Stanley Park for the shows – there will be a bike valet service offered on site each night too.

Lawn seating at Ceperley Meadows is free with plenty of space, but if you want a good spot to watch the evening flick, be sure to get there early as it’s first-come-first-serve seating. Be there early and take part in the many fun pre-show activities, including games, prizes, and giveaways, well as the weekly offering of food truck fair and classic movie treats.

If you want the best, and guaranteed, seat on the lawn, you can book a front-of-house deck chair part of the reserved Gold Circle VIP area for just $20.
