Well it’s time to get a little nostalgic folks. River District is hosting drive-in movies this summer. For those that have never experienced a drive-in movie, now’s your chance. River District will be hosting four of them starting this Sunday with a personal favourite, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off. This is a classic 80s movie to which you are encouraged to wear your 80s garb. Also on hand for this event, will be a selection of food trucks. They anticipate the following line up for Sunday’s feature movie:
Mom’s Grilled Cheese Truck
Reel MAC and Cheese
Street Meat Truck
Mr. Cool Ice Cream Truck
The River District Drive-In is located at 3650 E. Kent Avenue South which is located just west of Boundary Way and before Kinross Street in SE Vancouver. Gates open at 6:30 pm and the movie gets under way at dusk (approx. 8:00 pm). River District will provide you with the FM station for audio, so a working radio/FM station will round out your experience.
Sunday, July 26 – Indiana Jones & Raiders of the Lost Ark
Sunday September 6 – DOUBLE FEATURE
The Outsiders and Stand by Me
This is a free event and there is space for 250 cars, but it is first come first served. So if you are keen, best to arrive early.
