IKEA Proud Community Partner of Stanley Park Summer Cinema Tuesdays

RICHMOND, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - July 21, 2015) - IKEA Canada is proud to be hitting the big screen tonight and on July 28 as an official community partner of the Stanley Park Summer Cinema Tuesdays series at Second Beach. Tonight's event is an outdoor screening of the Harrison Ford, Sean Connery classic action adventure, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade while next week will feature a sing-a-long showing of Grease starring John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John. Rain dates for these two events are August 4th (for July 21st) & August 11th (for July 28th).

Moviegoers can enjoy the comforts of home courtesy of IKEA's Explore the Great Indoors initiative as they sit back and enjoy these two films on the silver screen. Attendees will receive the new IKEA Field Guide to help them explore the great indoors as well as select IKEA products to take home.

"We are really excited to be part of such a fantastic summer event in Metro Vancouver," said Steve Foster, Store Manager, IKEA Richmond. "And since we're all for exploring the great indoors as well, many lucky moviegoers will get a chance to experience some of those comforts both at the show and when they get home."

In addition, IKEA Canada is excited to give customers a chance to win a $250 IKEA gift card with the IKEA Furniture Spotting contest on Pinterest. Entrants simply have to create their own board called "IKEA furniture spotting", and whenever they see a great image featuring IKEA products, pin it with the hashtag, #ikeafurniturespotting. More information can be found at www.ikea.ca/greatindoors.

"We encourage people to love their indoor space just as much as the outdoors," said Foster. "Where else can you climb into bed, sink into a warm bath, and sprawl onto the sofa? Come into IKEA this summer and find everything you need to explore the great indoors."

Customers who visit IKEA Richmond will also get to experience a variety of recently introduced enhancements. This includes a new in-store Shopping Service that allows customers to have their furniture picked up for them and delivered directly to their homes, an expanded digital offering with free in store Wi-Fi, as well as renewed store displays and remodeled showrooms to provide customers with more inspiration and an even better shopping experience.

IKEA Richmond is one of two IKEA stores in British Columbia. The second IKEA location is in Coquitlam and also offers IKEA's enhanced shopping services.

Tonight's Stanley Park Summer Cinema movie starts at 9:35pm with attendees encouraged to come early as seating is first come, first served. The first 500 attendees will receive an IKEA gift pack. Full event information can be found at www.freshaircinema.ca/summercinema.
