Summer has arrived and the Evo Summer Cinema Series begins it’s summer of Tuesday night movies in Stanley Park July 5th.

Here are the movies and trailers for July.


The Outsiders – Tuesday, July 5 1983/PG/1 hour 30 minutes Sunset: 9:20pm

A who’s-who of 80s teen heartthrobs – C. Thomas Howell, Ralph Macchio, Patrick Swayze, Matt Dillon, Rob Lowe, Emilio Estevez and a young kid who’s going places, Tom Cruise – star in Francis (THE GODFATHER) Coppola’s sensitive take on the iconic YA novel. In dusty 1960s Oklahoma, the rivalry between two gangs, the poor Greasers and the rich Socs, only heats up when one gang member kills a member of the other. It’s Big Drama with small perfect moments wrapped in a sweepingly romantic old-Hollywood feel: a modern-day classic for those of a certain generation


Napoleon Dynamite – Tuesday, July 12 2004/PG/1 hour 36 minutes Sunset: 9:15pm

This indie cult hit stars Jon Heder in his breakout performance as a listless and alienated teenager who decides to help his new friend (Efren Ramirez) win the class presidency in their small western high school, while he must deal with his bizarre family life back home. Quirky, original, even oddly inspiring – but just a whole lot of irony-steeped fun.


The Little Mermaid – Tuesday, July 19 1989/G/1 hour 23 minutes Sunset: 9:10pm

Your favourite slumber party VHS movie comes to the Stanley Park big screen for the first time – it’s the magic and the music of Disney’s charming The Little Mermaid! Dive in to the fairy-tale story of a mermaid princess who makes a Faustian bargain with an unscrupulous sea-witch in order to meet a human prince on land. This is the high-water mark of a movie that reminded us that Disney animation is second-to-none when it comes to storytelling and song. Come relive some childhood memories or start some new ones with this adorable, perennial classic.


The Rocky Horror Picture Show – Tuesday, July 26 1975/PG/1 hour 40 minutes Sunset: 9:00pm

It’s Pride Week in the West End, so come do the Time-Warp again… for the first time ever in Stanley Park! We’re excited to present the inaugural Vancouver outdoor screening of this granddaddy of all midnight movies: the raucous, rock musical extravaganza known the world over as The Rocky Horror Picture Show! A newly engaged couple (Susan Sarandon and Barry Bostwick) have a car breakdown in an isolated area and must pay a call to the bizarre residence of Dr. Frank-N-Furter (Tim Curry) for help. What next transpires is 90-odd minutes of perfectly campy, happily crass wink-wink, nudge-nudge fun, big production numbers and great songs. If you’re easily offended, this is probably a show to skip. But for the rest of you Unconventional Conventioneers… don’t dream it, be it! Guest Note: Some scenes and content may not be suitable for all audience members. Viewer discretion is strongly advised.
