Free Movie at David Lam Park, July 29, from Vancity Fresh Air Movie Tour

Free outdoor movies are a summer tradition in Vancouver. This week, along with the ongoing summer movie series in Stanley Park, Fresh Air Cinema is teaming up with Vancity to bring a free outdoor screening of The Princess Bride to Yaletown’s David Lam Park this Sunday, July 29.

Called the Vancity Fresh Air Movie Tour, the July 29 event includes the free Princess Bride screening at 9pm plus a mini-festival before the show. The pre-movie fest features Vancity’s Mobile Community Garden (where you can plant a seedling that will grow in the garden to be harvested for local schoolchildren to eat in their school cafeterias) and a showcase for local non-profits and Vancity members. Vancity will also be handing out $5 gift certificates for use at Vancouver Farmers Markets.

You can also enter to win the Vancity Fresh Air Movie Tour Giveaway Prize Pack: $25 voucher to the local Farmers Market, set of Vancity produce bags, a reusable Vancity lunch bag, a reusable beverage canister, and shopping cart tokens. Contest details here.

Bring your own blanket or folding chairs for the movie, and make use of the complimentary bike parking from BEST biking valet.

There’s no mention on the Vancity site of a rain-date, so follow them on Twitter and Facebook for updates, in case of rain.

The free Vancity Fresh Air Movie Tour and screening of The Princess Bride happens Sunday, July 29, 2012.

      You’re right: the movie starts at 9pm. Sorry for any confusion; I’ve corrected the time in the post.

  2. Hi Dana & movieguy,

    Yes the movie will start around 9pm. Our community festival starts at 5pm with food, games and prizes with our community partners.
