Free Outdoor Movies for July

Suzanne recently blogged about Hastings Racecourse showing 80’s flicks for free on Friday nights, and now I’m here to tell you about the free outdoor movie series for 2010.

The West End BIA will again be hosting Dinner & A Movie series; free outdoor movie nights in Ceperley Meadow in Stanley Park (it’s right near Second Beach).

The dates and movies for this year are as follows:

July 7th: Mamma Mia

July 14th: The Goonies

July 22nd: Monsters vs Aliens

July 29th: The Karate Kid (the original film, not the “Will Smith’s son” film)

Moviegoers are encouraged to pick up some food to chow down on while watching the movie. Or, if you have some time, why not check out some of the fabulous restaurants in the West End before you head on down?

All movies begin at dusk, so bring down your blanket or beanbag for a great evening in a beautiful location.
