Event Information

Load the car up with friends and family and come enjoy a spooky Halloween movie under the stars in a fun, retro drive-in setting!


For two nights at the end of October, get ready to scream, shriek and shiver at the return of Canada's only HALLOWEEN DRIVE-IN movie series at Wesgroup's River District neighbourhood in South Vancouver!


Including the frightful family film favorites "The Nightmare Before Christmas" (1993) and Disney's “Hocus Pocus” (1993) - or thrill to classic scares for grown-ups like "John Carpenter's The Thing" (1982) and "The Lost Boys" (1987)... get ready to get scared right in the comfort (and safety?) of your own car for a non-stop outdoor drive-in Halloween scare-o-rama you won’t ever forget! Just keep repeating: “It’s only a movie! It’s only a movie! It’s only a movie!”


Your CARLOAD parking pass gives you preferred parking at the Halloween Drive-In for the movie of your choice for one car/truck/van/SUV, and entry for you + up to 7 other guests inside your vehicle.
