Free outdoor movies are a smash hit in Metro Vancouver this summer in Stanley Park, in Burnaby, at Nat Bailey, at Holland Park in Surrey, and in Yaletown. Now, they’re coming to Coquitlam Centre with a unique twist.

Summer drive-in movies will be presented every Wednesday in August in the Coquitlam Centre parking lot outside H&M and Zellers (just off Pinetree Way).

August 18th – Date Night: The Notebook

Admission is by donation to SHARE Family and Community Services and you can book a “preferred” parking spot for $10 in advance from Coquitlam Centre Guest Services. All funds raised by donations and preferred parking passes will go directly to SHARE. In 2009 alone, SHARE served 8,175 individuals, out of which 1,110 were children under 6 years old and 3,330 were children under 18 years old. Currently, SHARE is providing a minimum of 800 households with food relief every two weeks and forty five percent of the recipients are children.

Full details on preferred parking passes are available on the Coquitlam Centre website. The parking lot will be open for general admission cars at 8:00pm each movie night or 6:00pm for those cars with passes.
