Summer is slowly coming to an end and I am booking lots of my spare time this month attending a bunch of outdoor film screenings! Last week, I finally went to a TIFF In The Park screening (which is free). I saw one of my favorite film noirs, Sunset Boulevard (if not the best!) and also attended Open Roof Festival’s screening of 20 Feet From Stardom. Details on the outdoor screenings below and a couple more I am planning on attending this month!
TIFF In The Park – Their FREE outdoor screenings happen in David Pecaut Square. Although some of their outdoor screenings have taken place in other places around Toronto like Friday’s recent screening of Chocolat at Evergreen Brickworks. As a TIFF member, I am guaranteed a VIP seat. When I went last Wednesday, I received a free popcorn voucher and Bell hand santizer spray! I go to these film screenings not because I haven’t seen the movies before. Some I have and are some of my favorites! I just have free time and going to FREE film screenings is just a great way to kill time! Their upcoming film screenings for the remainder of the month that I will also be planning on going to:
Open Roof Festival – This is my first time attending the festival! I wanted to finally see 20 Feet To Stardom. I wasn’t able to see it at TIFF In The Park and I could have just watched the documentary on Netflix. However, I wanted to check out this festival and it was pretty cool! It takes place outside in the back of 99 Sudbury St with an upcoming local artist playing a few of his/her songs before the actual screening begins! Jill Godin played some of her few songs before the screening! She’s really talented! They have three more upcoming film screenings this month! Unfortunately, I won’t be going to them but their film screening line up have been pretty awesome! I would have gone to more in July if I had known sooner! It costs $15 but definitely worth it!
Scotiabank presents Summer Cinema @ Fort York – I read about the FREE summer screenings at Fort York on BlogTo. It will be super close to my new place! So, I was going to go to these screenings to see some classic films like The Breakfast Club (which I love)!! It kicks off this week! I have posted the full line up but I will most likely be going to the remaining 3!
August 5 – Jurassic Park
August 12 – The Breakfast Club
August 19 – Ghostbusters
August 26 – The Amazing Spiderman 2
They hold VIP seats for the first 50 Scotiabank SCENE Debit and VISA cardholders and the first 300 people receive free popcorn! Woohoo!
There are a bunch of other outdoor screenings that have been happening this summer but they are a bit more further out from where I live or will soon be living!
