Movies in the Park presents “The Lego Batman Movie” tonight

Wednesday, August 9, 2017

Vancouver’s Movies in the Park continues this evening, Friday, Aug. 11, with The LEGO Batman Movie at Fruit Valley Park, 3200 Fruit Valley Road. In the irreverent spirit of fun that made The LEGO Movie a worldwide phenomenon, the self-described leading man of that ensemble – LEGO Batman – stars in his own big-screen adventure. But there are big changes brewing in Gotham, and if he wants to save the city from The Joker’s hostile takeover, Batman may have to drop the lone vigilante thing, try to work with others and maybe, just maybe, learn to lighten up. Pre-movie activities start at 7 p.m. The movie starts at dusk. For a complete list of the city’s free concerts and movies, click here.
