Nothing is better than a warm summer night in Toronto. It doesn't last very long, but while it's here we should make the most of it. Sitting by the water with a couple of friends, a bag of popcorn and a good flick is one way to do it.

Starting on Wednesday July 8, you can grab a seat at the Harborfront Westjet Outdoor Theatre and enjoy an array of films. There are nine movies in total, one each Wednesday of the summer. It all wraps up on the evening of September 2, with a viewers choice. So don't miss out, it is a hell of a way to spend a night out.
