who you gonna call?


In the summer in Vancouver (as well as locations across BC), there are free outdoor movie nights that happen all over the city. On the Sunday, we headed downtown to Yaletown with our picinic blanket to catch Ghostbusters and it was so much fun! It was already packed when we got there (mostly with big kids like us, perhaps a little nostalgic for the 80s movie and wanting a dose of Bill Murray), but we managed to nab a little grassy patch. My fave part was when the whole audience chanted "Ghostbusters!" every time it came up in the song... it was so cute!

ps. I tried to nab pics of the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man, but in our excitement, the pic was too blurry and it made him look scary.

Aw how fun! We have free concerts in the park (instrumental usually), but no free movies! That's very cool.

We do the same outdoor movie nights down here, but ours are shown on the side wall of the art museum in Raleigh. Good times. Love me some Bill Murray!

Justine said...

This sounds like so much fun. It's like concerts in the park, only with cool graphics and cooler music!

Wow, I have never heard of anything like that before but it sounds like a lot of fun! The only thing we have in my town is a really crusty old drive-in theater, and it's not even free (nor does it play awesome movies from the 80's). That's it, I'm leaving this country.

Love movies in the park...once we saw ice age with the kids was the best ever cinema night;)

Hey Harriet said...

Outdoor movies are so much fun! We have them here in the summer as well. I haven't been lucky enough to catch a screening of Ghostbusters yet on the big screen. I love cheesy 80s movies!

So cool! Wish they did that here...

Ooo! I love Ghostbusters! I own the second one on VHS of all things. I think they do those movies in the park here in Maine too, but I've never been. :)

What the!?

I love Ghostbusters and the first time I ever saw it as a kid was at a drive-in theatre. AWESOME!

Can you send some of your warm weather to Toronto? Our summer here is suckin' hard. I mean, better than January and February but certainly not the scorcher I was hoping for.

Oh man! I'm so jealous! I keep trying to get Trees to watch Ghostbusters, but it's not happening.

What fun. Is that something like a drive-in?
