This summer, join Quest University for the magic of cinema under the stars with Summer Movie Nights, starting on July 22. During the four-weeks of Quest Summer Movie Nights, the Squamish community can gather on the Quest campus to enjoy a family-friendly film, free of charge. The event is supported by Fortis BC, Sea to Sky Gondola, Squamish Connector, Garibaldi Active Wellness, Nesters Market, Urban Alpine, Grounded Sustainable Grocer, the Lovacore food truck, and Sunflower Bakery and Cafe.
“I am excited that we have the opportunity to open our campus up to the community for a series of movie nights this summer,” says Quest University president George Iwama. “Quest is in a beautiful location surrounded by mountains, which makes it an ideal space for outdoor events. With COVID restrictions loosening, we are happy to be able to host events again for the public — in a way that is safe and fun for the whole family. I would like you, our community, to feel more comfortable and familiar with our campus. I look forward to welcoming you to one or more of these shows.”
This year’s exciting lineup includes some all-time favorite movies. Blacksmith Will Turner teams up with eccentric pirate “Captain” Jack Sparrow to save his love, the governor’s daughter, from Jack’s former pirate allies, who are now undead in Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl to be shown on July 22.
Iron Man, the superhero movie that kicked off the Marvel Universe movies, will be the feature on August 5. After being held captive in an Afghan cave, billionaire engineer Tony Stark creates a unique weaponized suit of armor to fight evil.
On August 19, come watch Monsters University and take a look at the relationship between Mike Wazowski (Billy Crystal) and James P. “Sully” Sullivan (John Goodman) during their days at Monsters University, when they weren’t necessarily the best of friends.
On September 3, see Emma Stone’s Academy Award-winning performance in La La Land. While navigating their careers in Los Angeles, a pianist and an actress fall in love while attempting to reconcile their aspirations for the future.
All movies will begin at dusk. Bring blankets and chairs to stake out your spot on the lawn. Remember to dress for the weather and cooler night air. Please make sure to check the website for exact start times as times may change to match sunset hours. Seating will open one hour prior to dusk. The event will be held rain or shine. Movie showings will move to an indoor venue on campus in the event of rain.
