Outdoor Movies in Vancouver - Coming Up July 2010!
We've popped on down to the outdoor movie events in Stanley Park a few years in a row now! It's a great way to spend an evening, weather permitting... Click on through to see the schedule and listings for 2010!
Last year or two it was "Monsters In The Park" with some great old (and I mean OLD) films , but this year they've moved forwards a few decades! I'll probably give Mamma Mia a miss, but the others look great!! Like with previous years, the movie starts at dusk (around 9 - 9:30 depending), and the event will be cancelled if there is rain or high wind (the screen tries to blow away). Please park your bikes towards the back so you don't obstruct the view of other movie goers, and bringing along a blanket is a REALLY good idea!! While the washrooms will be open, the Parks Board in their infinite wisdom seem to think it is best to keep the concession stand closed - go figure.
Wednesday, July 7 - Mamma Mia Wednesday, July 14th - The Goonies Thursday, July 22nd - Monsters vs Aliens Thursday, July 29th - The Karate Kid (Original)
Relive the magic and sing those famous songs, we all know the words too..
"Set on a colorful Greek island, the plot serves as a background for a wealth of ABBA songs. A young woman about to be married discovers that any one of three men could be her father. She invites all three to the wedding without telling her mother, Donna, who was once the lead singer of Donna and the Dynamos. In the meantime, Donna has invited her backup singers, Rosie and Tanya."
A timeless classic adventure, one for all to enjoy!
"Mikey and Brandon Walsh are two brothers whose family is preparing to move due to a new development that is sure to be started unless enough money is raised, which is quite doubtful. But, when Mikey stumbles on a treasure map of the famed "One-Eyed" Willy's hidden fortune, he, his brother, and a few friends set out on a quest to find the riches in hopes to save their homes. The entrance to a cavern is found, but it is located underneath an abandoned restaurant occupied by the Fratelli family, a treacherous group of thieves who attempt to beat the "Goonies" to the treasure."
Family friendly and a barrel of laughs..
"When a meteorite from outer space hits a young California woman named Susan Murphy and turns her into a giant monster, she is taken to a secret government compound where she meets a ragtag group of monsters also rounded up over the years. As a last resort, under the guidance of General W.R. Monger, on a desperate order from The President, the motley crew of Monsters is called into action to combat the aliens and save the world from imminent destruction!"
See how it all began, with the legendary Mr. Miyagi!
"Daniel is new in town, and is getting picked on by the local bullies, who all are adept in karate. Determined to stick up for himself, Daniel begins to teach himself karate, only to discover that the caretaker at his apartment seems to be a grand master in karate. Agreeing to teach Daniel, Mr. Miyagi shows Daniel that there is more to karate than violence, and perhaps the best way to solve the problem he has with the bullies is in the All Valley Karate Championship"
