Canada Place is always a hub of activity on Canada Day, but the action also continues throughout July and August. Take a walk alongside the sails and you’ll find free entertainment–as low-key or as lively as you want it.
Every Thursday night starting July 9, the Fresh Air Cinema gets into gear. A three-story-tall inflatable screen will be erected at the north point of Canada Place; in this giant space, around 1,000 people can kick back and watch a movie. It’s a spectacular setting, with the ocean and mountains as the backdrop.

Each film features Canadian talent. Here’s the line-up:
