Let’s not pretend a FREE film screened on a barge in Lake Ontario isn’t a tempting summer evening: head to Sugar Beach for Sail-in Cinema.

FESTIVAL  |  Christie Pits Film Festival

Your favourite Toronto outdoor cinema is back with the Christie Pits Film Festival. 2016’s theme is ‘Stranded in Christie Pits’, so expect hits like Gravity and Cast Away. It’s under the stars, pay-what-you-can and BYOBlanket: what more could you want?
