With the onset of summer comes a yearly tradition at Victoria’s Beacon Hill Park.

It’s time to grab your blanket, a flashlight and some snacks and head down to the Cameron Bandshell in Beacon Hill Park for the Victoria Film Festival’s Free-B Film Festival.

Once again they’ve lined up a stellar collection of family-friendly films, so get ready to curl up under the stars and enjoy free films on a 20-foot-wide inflatable screen.

Pull up a patch of grass at the bandshell every Saturday in August where the whole family will enjoy treasures from movie making history.

The festival kicks off on Aug. 4 with a screening of the original ’90s movie, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. On Aug. 11 see Harry in Your Pocket, on Aug. 18 see Beetlejuice and on Aug. 25 see War Games. All films start at 9 p.m.
