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.

The films are free, and you can bring whatever you need to make yourself comfortable: blankets and lawn chairs are welcome. Popcorn and beverages will be available to purchase, and there’s no alcohol or smoking permitted as it’s a family-friendly event.

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

Summer is here and with it comes the return of outdoor movies.

Every summer, you can find the crowds in Vancouver seated in the park after dark, watching classics such as Indiana Jones and Clueless. FreshAirCinema partners with various organisations to bring outdoor movie events to BC. The movies are screened in parks across the city on three-story high movie screens and are completely free! FreshAirCinema organises events all over BC, so if you’re outside the city, check the Facebook page for events near you.

The movies begin at dusk, which is usually around 9pm. Get there early for a good seat and remember to bring a blanket as it can get chilly after dark.

A full list of Vancouver movies and locations can be found after the jump. For more information, check the Facebook page. Continue reading:

Free outdoor movies are a Vancouver summer staple and as August nears the halfway point, chances are running out.

Yaletown Free Outdoor Movie Night officially starts at sunset (around 8pm). It’s better to arrive early to get good real estate, otherwise, to the disappointment of both you and Patrick Swayze, baby will end up sitting in a faraway a corner. Continue reading:
