Drive-in movie theatres are no longer a thing of the past. Summertime in Metro Vancouver includes several drive-in theatres. Thanks to Wesgroup and Fresh Air Cinema, they’ll be bringing this once popular theatre back to the River District Community in South Vancouver.
From Saturday, July 9 – Saturday, August 6, you can catch an inexpensive flick in your car. For twenty dollars, you can bring a car load of up to eight people to the theatre. That’s one heck of a deal! If you managed to fit eight people in your car, that’d only cost $2.50 a person to see a movie. There’s not many theatres that offer that kind of deal!
For an even better deal, you can wait until Sundays in August when Wesgroup will be providing free movies. The free movies will start Sunday, August 7 and go until Sunday, August 28. There is limited capacity though, so be sure to come early for a parking spot.
All movies this summer will start at dusk with doors opening at 6:30 pm. The movies are broadcasted on FM sound. The drive-in will feature great classics as well as kids favourites. This lineup of movies looks awesome no matter what age you are or what your favourite movie genre is.
At the event, you’ll be able to purchase treats if you forgot to bring some. You’ll want to purchase movie tickets in advance for Saturdays, so please click here. So what are you waiting for? Load up the car and head on down to this must-do summer event!
