A who’s-who of 80s teen heartthrobs - C. Thomas Howell, Ralph Macchio, Patrick Swayze, Matt Dillon, Rob Lowe, Emilio Estevez and a young kid who’s going places, Tom Cruise – star in Francis (THE GODFATHER) Coppola’s sensitive take on the iconic YA novel. In dusty 1960s Oklahoma, the rivalry between two gangs, the poor Greasers and the rich Socs, only heats up when one gang member kills a member of the other. It’s Big Drama with small perfect moments wrapped in a sweepingly romantic old-Hollywood feel: a modern-day classic for those of a certain generation. Stay gold, Ponyboy.Napoleon Dynamite – Tuesday, July 12 2004/PG/1 hour 36 minutes Sunset: 9:15pm View Trailer
This indie cult hit stars Jon Heder in his breakout performance as a listless and alienated teenager who decides to help his new friend (Efren Ramirez) win the class presidency in their small western high school, while he must deal with his bizarre family life back home. Quirky, original, even oddly inspiring - but just a whole lot of irony-steeped fun. Vote for Pedro!The Little Mermaid – Tuesday, July 19 1989/G/1 hour 23 minutes Sunset: 9:10pm View Trailer
Your favourite slumber party VHS movie comes to the Stanley Park big screen for the first time – it’s the magic and the music of Disney’s charming The Little Mermaid! Dive in to the fairy-tale story of a mermaid princess who makes a Faustian bargain with an unscrupulous sea-witch in order to meet a human prince on land. This is the high-water mark of a movie that reminded us that Disney animation is second-to-none when it comes to storytelling and song. Come relive some childhood memories or start some new ones with this adorable, perennial classic.The Rocky Horror Picture Show – Tuesday, July 26 1975/PG/1 hour 40 minutes Sunset: 9:00pm View Trailer
It’s Pride Week in the West End, so come do the Time-Warp again… for the first time ever in Stanley Park! We’re excited to present the inaugural Vancouver outdoor screening of this granddaddy of all midnight movies: the raucous, rock musical extravaganza known the world over as The Rocky Horror Picture Show! A newly engaged couple (Susan Sarandon and Barry Bostwick) have a car breakdown in an isolated area and must pay a call to the bizarre residence of Dr. Frank-N-Furter (Tim Curry) for help. What next transpires is 90-odd minutes of perfectly campy, happily crass wink-wink, nudge-nudge fun, big production numbers and great songs. If you’re easily offended, this is probably a show to skip. But for the rest of you Unconventional Conventioneers… don’t dream it, be it! Guest Note: Some scenes and content may not be suitable for all audience members. Viewer discretion is strongly advised.Star Wars: The Force Awakens – Tuesday, August 2 2015/PG/2 hours 16 minutes Sunset: 8:50pm View Trailer
The Force is back (and boy is it ever… ) in this invigorating mix of exciting sci-fi action, engaging new characters and a dollop of wistful childhood nostalgia. Three decades after the JEDI returned and the good guys defeated the Galactic Empire, a new threat arises. The First Order attempts to rule the galaxy and only a ragtag group of heroes can stop them, along with the help of the Resistance. This is the first time we’ve ever been able to play a STAR WARS movie outdoors anywhere in Canada, so our whole crew is super-stoked about seeing this one on our big screen right there with you. PLUS: members of the 501st Outer Rim Garrison (Vancouver) and the Rebel Legion Canadian Base will be roaming about on site (schedule permitting) to appear in some of the coolest STAR WARS selfies you’ll ever take!Labyrinth – David Bowie Night & 30th Anniversary –
Tuesday, August 9 1986/PG/1 hour 41 minutes Sunset: 8:40pm View Trailer
David Bowie has never been more fascinatingly enigmatic on-screen than in this hugely-imaginative collaboration between Jim (THE MUPPETS) Henson, George (STAR WARS) Lucas, Terry (MONTY PYTHON) Jones and The Thin White Duke himself. A selfish 16-year old girl (Jennifer Connelly) is given 13 hours to solve a labyrinth and rescue her baby brother when her wish for him to be taken away is granted by the evil Goblin King (Bowie). Lots of tunes, plenty of cute characters to cheer on, exciting adventure, and a grand magical pre-CGI time guaranteed for all. So, get glammed up and Let’s Dance to some pre-show, career-spanning Bowie music videos as we celebrate the remarkable talent of this amazing superstar!Purple Rain – Prince Night – Tuesday, August 16 1984/PG/1 hour 51 minutes Sunset: 8:25pm View Trailer
