Looking for something fun to do this August? How about dinner and a movie… outside! The Summer Screen event takes place at the Village at False Creek, located right near the Science Centre, and across the harbour from Yaletown.
Summer Screen food vendors will offer popcorn, pulled pork sandwiches and beverages.
