Free Outdoor Movies in Metro Vancouver 2010

About a week ago I started compiling a list of free outdoor movie locations in the Greater Vancouver area. It has since grown to a sizable list, but a lot of these tend to crop up over summer.

I've reorganized the list chronologically for readability's sake (attached below). Complete information on venue, times and links to google maps are in the forum thread. These movie showings are a great way to enjoy our rare sunny weather, so be sure to catch at least one. Be sure to let me know in the comments or in the forum thread of any other outdoor (and hopefully free) movie screenings you hear about!

Site was down

An error caused the site to go down for awhile. I've manually cleared the cache and everything seems to work now. Let me know if you encounter any problems while I look into what happened.

Joining the Blogosphere

The purpose of this blog is to provide announcements and updates about the forum. I might also mention interesting posts or give a heads up if there's an scheduled maintenance or downtime.

Initially I thought about hosting a Wordpress blog so that forum members would be able to use their account to comment here, but the downside to that option is that any server/hosting issue that affects the forum would also affect the blog, which renders the purpose of the blog partially moot. Plus, it's a lot more work bridging Wordpress and the forum software.

Instead, I'm using Blogger so this blog is hosted on Google's servers, which means that in the event of server problems you can still check here for any communications.

Oh yeah, the forum is one month old today :)
