Summer is the best season to spend time outdoors. After being stuck inside our homes for months on end we're all craving some outdoor time and for those of us who want to chill and take it easy this summer, an outdoor movie night is exactly what we need.
The Toronto Outdoor Picture Show will be hosting movie nights under the stars this summer and it's going to be right up your alley. They screen films at parks across the city so wherever you are in Toronto, you can experience an evening movie night!
They set up 40-foot screens in some of the best parks with stunning views and the best part is that they're all completely free! You don't have to pay a cent to enjoy an outdoor movie screening but they do accept donations to keep their amazing events going each year.
They have specific dates scheduled for each location including opening weekend on June 15th and 16th at Fort York, Sundays from June 30th until August 25th at Christie Pitts, Thursdays from July 4th until 25th at Corktown Common Park, and Thursdays from August 8th until 22nd at Bell Manor Park.
They will be screening some serious classics this summer including Thelma & Louise, Sense and Sensibility, E.T., Some Like It Hot, You've Got Mail, Ratatouille, and many more. The theme for their movies this year is Dynamic Duos, which makes sense when you look at all the amazing movies they have lined up for us!
They don't provide any chairs or seating for the event and spots close to the screen are all first-come, first served. You can bring with you any type of cozy seating you want from the classic blanket or beach chair to a blow-up mattress or those viral inflatable chairs that you fill up with air by running around.
Anything you choose, make sure you're comfortable and as many snacks and drinks as you can handle are encouraged! Just make sure you clean up before you leave the park.
