There's nothing like summer in the city. And as the cool weather fades, the warm weather makes way for abundant adventures.
When you're spending summer in Vancouver, you can look forward to long hikes on the North Shore mountains, ocean dips in the cool Pacific, beach picnics with the most epic sunsets and outdoor movies in one of the most beautiful settings: Stanley Park.
Evo Car Share Summer Cinema in Stanley Park is going to make the summer months that much better. Imagine yourself outside on green grass with ocean and beach views on one side and a lush forest on the other, while you're stretched out on a blanket enjoying some of your favorite movies.
Sounds pretty awesome, right?

On top of all that, the movie events are free. And they usually run through most of July and August.
FreshAirCinema will be transforming the Grand Lawn at Ceperley Meadow by Second Beach into an incredible outdoor cinema that can fit 5,000 movie-goers.
The four-story inflatable movie screen means you'll be able to have a good view. But if you want to make sure you have a great seat, then get there early, as seating is on a first-come, first-served basis.
Seating isn't provided, so be sure to bring your own blankets and pack some warm clothes, as it tends to cool down quite a bit when the sun goes down. If you forget your blanket, they have some for sale.
Hungry? Pack a picnic with plenty of snacks. Or grab something from the FreshAirCinema Snack Bar.
