View Movies Under The Stars At Vancouver’s Only Drive-In Theatre This Fall

River District Outdoor Movies

While watching a movie is always fun, there’s something extra special about getting cozy and viewing one under the stars.

This fall, Vancouverites have the chance to visit the drive-in right in their own backyard. Wesgroup and River District are screening films over 6 Saturdays in September and October. What’s more, they’ll be showing double-features each night with the family-friendly feature showing first – and they’re free!

The drive-in lot is located right off Boundary at Marine Way, half a block south from Marine Way at River District Vancouver.

Guests will have the chance to enjoy free popcorn that’s provided by Scotiabank. In addition, there will be food trucks and snacks, so bring your appetite!

While the event is free, movie goers will need to reserve their spots here. Organizers are also encouraging attendees to bring donations. The donations will be collected at the box office and proceeds will go to the South Vancouver Family Place.
