It's not summer in Vancouver without a night spent outside watching free movies in the park. Every year we can't wait to grab our picnic blanket, chairs, and snacks before heading to those free movie nights in Stanley Park. You can chill with your friends right by the ocean as you wait for the sun to set and the movie to begin.

Once the warm weather arrives, we all want to enjoy time outdoors, and this event is perfect for that. 

This year Canada's Premier Outdoor Movie Company is bringing back outdoor movies across the entire province.

They will have nearly 200 films, with their flagship series being the Evo Summer Cinema in Stanley Park.

For 2020, there will be eight nights where you can kick back and watch blockbuster films at Ceperley Meadow, in Stanley Park.

It will kick off on July 7, 2020, and continue every Tuesday until August 25.

The movies in the park are absolutely free to attend. But, the outdoor cinema can regularly draw a massive number of attendees, so make sure to arrive early.

Lounging under the twinkling night sky, you'll be able to snack on popcorn and enjoy one of the best ways to spend the summer. 

Everyone is invited to get comfy and cozy before the movie starts and you should try to get there up to two hours before to get your spot.

Or you can always pay for VIP seating on Eventbrite, which will give you a front-row Adirondack chair.

On the Evo Car Share site, they also will offer the option to reserve a blanket next to the VIP chair seats.

Last year some of the movies they played included Harry Potter, Jurassic Park, Aladdin, Moulin Rouge, and Shrek. 

Currently, the 2020 lineup hasn't been announced, but we are eager to see what will be selected.

Updates will begin in May, with the schedule being published early in June on their Facebook page and website.
