Over the past few years there has been a huge surge in demand for outdoor movies, and it's no wonder, what a perfect way to spend an evening! A movie surrounded by stars? Yes puh-lease!

Bring a blanket and lawn chair, sit back, and take in one of the shows with friends and family.

Admission is free to all movies, but seating is on a first come first served basis. Make sure you show up early to get a good spot!

BONUS: All movies at Bullen Park have free kid-friendly entertainment planned starting 1 hour before the show begins, and also have a concession available thanks to the Esquimalt Lions Club. All proceeds support services in the community.
