You could have plans every night this week because there’s a lot happening in Vancouver. Spend time outdoors watching live theatre, regular theatre, or shopping the finest local goods.
Theatre Under the Stars
From July 4 to August 18, you can catch live theatre productions of the musicals 42nd Street and Cinderella in Vancouver’s Stanley Park. Theatre Under the Stars is an outdoor theatre that captivates a new audience every night. Be sure to check out the calendar to find out which of the two shows you will be seeing and purchase tickets. All shows start at 8pm, except for fireworks nights when shows will start at 7pm. The fireworks nights - making your outing extra special - are July 28, August 1 and 4.
Snuggle under the stars at a beach, gallery, or by the water and catch a movie. Most movies start at sunset and require you bring your own lawn chairs and blankets.
Every Tuesday from July 3 to August 21, Second Beach in Stanley Park will turn into an outdoor theatre with pre-show activities like games and giveaways. If you get hungry, food trucks and classic movie treats will be close by to satisfy any snack cravings. Check out Evo Summer Cinema’s movie schedule online to find out which movies will be playing.
If you missed movie night on Tuesday and Wednesday night, you can still catch a free outdoor movie as the Waterfront Cinema series returns to Canada Place in downtown Vancouver. See a full schedule of the movies playing and the movies run every Thursday night from July 12 to August 30.
For the middle of the week, take to the city. The outside of Vancouver Art Gallery will transform with a four-storey inflatable screen for an outdoor movie night. This free event runs every Wednesday evening from July 4 to August 29. See a list of movies scheduled to play here.
Farmers’ Market Mornings
To help curb any morning blues, consider staying in North Vancouver Best Western Capilano Inn and Suites which is close to all the events listed. The hotel is minutes away from must-see attractions, but still priced affordably so you can make the most out of your stay in Vancouver.
You’ve got a busy week ahead of you, filled with fresh air and quality entertainment, so be sure to plan your accommodation as you plan your week in Vancouver.
