Waterfront Cinema returns with free outdoor movies at Canada Place this summer


Skip the Netflix and chill out Thursday nights this summer with free outdoor movies at Canada Place. Waterfront Cinema has announced their return for the 2018, and they’ve also released their all-star movie line-up.

From July 12 to August 23 you’ll be able to watch blockbuster flicks right by the water and under the stars. Movies start at dusk (between 8 and 9 pm, say organizers), and the event is family-friendly, so no booze or smoking.

Guests are encouraged to bring a blanket or lawn chair, and non-alcoholic drinks and popcorn will be available for purchase onsite.

Here’s the 2018 Waterfront Cinema movie schedule:

  • July 12: The Greatest Showman

  • July 26: Top Gun
  • August 2: Mama Mia Sing-A-Long
