Now, we head downtown for Summer Movie Nights, which will commence on July 6th and run every Thursday evening until August 17th. While this year’s lineup of outdoor movies has yet to be announced, the DVBIA teases that it may be their “most iconic yet” in a recent Instagram post. So get ready to gather at Šxʷƛ̓ənəq Xwtl’e7énḵ Square in front of the Vancouver Art Gallery for some exciting movie nights.

Screenings will begin around 9 pm, with activations starting at 5 pm.

So there you have it, Vancouver. If you’re an outdoor movie lover, there’s no better time than the summer. Don’t forget the popcorn!
