Stanley Park Summer Movie Lineup

​EVO SUMMER CINEMA​ – Stanley Park on Tuesday nights this summer! Beginning on July 3rd, and continuing through August 21st, every Tuesday night in Ceperley Meadow at Stanley Park’s Second Beach, Fresh Air Cinema will be using their giant, four-storey, inflatable movie screens to deliver a feature film experience under the stars.

What is extra-special about this tenth edition of the popular outdoor movie series is that all eight titles screening this summer in Stanley Park were chosen by the general public through a poll conducted by Fresh Air Cinema earlier in the month. Over 5,000 votes were cast, and each of the winning films were guaranteed to receive a place in the summer line-up.

The 2018 Evo Summer Cinema Series movies, as voted on and chosen by outdoor movie-loving British Columbians, are:

● “The Princess Bride” ​(1987) – Tuesday, July 3rd

● “Stand by Me”​ (1986) – Tuesday, July 10th

● “The Lion King”​ (1994) – Tuesday, July 17th

● “Mean Girls” ​(2004) – Tuesday, July 24th

● “Spice World”​ (1997) – Tuesday, July 31st

● “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off”​ (1986) – Tuesday, August 7th

● “Grease” ​(1978) – Tuesday, August 14th

● “Titanic”​ (1997) – Tuesday, August 21st

Movies begin at sundown each night, but there are fun and festivities beginning at 5:00pm and continuing right on through until the show begins.
Als​o, an e​xciting new addition this year will be the ​EVO SUMMER CINEMA MARKETPLACE ​- a carefully-curated weekly offering of local artisans and crafters from right here in B.C. Guests
are encouraged to come see the amazing locally produced, handmade goods that they have to offer.

“People from across BC, Canada and around the world have come together to help make these events a success.​ This spectacular line-up picked by the audience itself is our way of saying thank you​ to all of our fans who come out to support all of our events.” explained Jason Bashnick, managing director of Fresh Air Cinema BC.
It’s going to be another amazing summer for Fresh Air Cinema and its title partner ​ Evo Car Share​, with friends, food, music and movies every Tuesday for eight weeks in Stanley Park.
