The Gastown Drive-In Movie Experience

Earlier this month I wrote a roundup post featuring various outdoor movie nights around the Lower Mainland. The other day I also discovered a unique open air film event happening in Gastown. I was able to interview the folks at Cineworks and Urban Republic who will be bringing the drive-in movie experience to Water Street.

You can read more about this on my E!Online post. The Drive-In begins September 3rd and will run weekly until the 17th at the Easy Park on Water street and will celebrate films made in BC. There is no admission cost but if you bring your vehicle the evening parking rate applies ($5). The audience is also encouraged to bring their own chairs as only 100 will be supplied.

    Drive in theatre is such a North American thing to do. I’ve never been to one but always wanted to go. Looks like I may get my chance. Thanks for bringing it to my attention.
