If you're a horror movie fan like myself, don't

miss this opportunity to see three of the classics

of the genre.



Monsters in the Meadow

Free Outdoor Movies Return to Stanley Park

View Ceperley Meadow Site Map

July 26, 2004 (No. 54) - The Vancouver Park

Board will turn back the clock over thirty years

and once again offer free outdoor movies in the

park starting the first Friday in August. Monsters

in the Meadow will feature three horror films on

three Friday nights August 6th, 20th (rain night

21st) and 27th (rain night 28th ). The horror

films are classic pieces and speak to specific

periods in movie making during the 20th


Ceperley Meadow, located near the red fire

engine and Second Beach in Stanley Park, will be

the site of the outdoor cinema which will be

projected on a 15' X 20' screen. Show times are

scheduled to start at 9 pm sharp following a

selection of National Film Board shorts.

Participants are asked to bring their own blankets

or folding chairs to sit upon and a flashlight to

make for an easier exit following the films.

Parking will be limited so viewers are urged to

walk into the site where possible.

Featured films include:

August 6th King Kong

August 20th Frankenstein

August 27th Godzilla, King of the Monsters

The outdoor film series is a return to yesteryear

for the Park Board when they offered free flicks

under the stars at Sunset Beach. The Park Board

Commissioners approved the Monsters in the

Meadow proposal in June with funding for the

event coming from Corporate Sponsorship.

The Second Beach concession stand and adjacent

washrooms will be open during the movie


The public should be advised that the movies will

be canceled if high wind or rain occurs. Call the

Monsters in the Meadow info line the evening of

the performance for cancellation information at
