FEATURED EVENTS IN VANCOUVER
A Future for Memory: Art and Life After the Great East Japan Earthquake, February 11 to September 5, 2021
The Downtown Vancouver Business Improvement Association is giving a big upgrade to their Summer Movie Nights.
The highlight of the evening, as per usual, will be the outdoor movie playing on the Vancouver Art Gallery Square.
For the special night, however, movie-goers will get to watch a showing of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles with Washinton’s DJ 2-Tone Jones remixing a live soundtrack as the film plays.
The evening will also include a free break dancing workshop and performance from Shape Shifter Studio and the Vancouver Street Dance Association. The workshop is open to participants of all skill levels — just be sure to wear comfortable clothing and shoes.
A live martial arts demonstration will also take place prior to the start of the movie.
In between the free activities and the live-scored movie, attendees will have their choice of two fantastic food trucks: Venezualan fare from Come Arepa and Filipino treats from Shameless Buns.
