Free movie screenings are coming back to Toronto parks this summer.
The Toronto Outdoor Picture Show (TOPS) is hosting Another World, a 21-date open-air festival from June 22 to Aug. 27.
The season will consist of outdoor film festivals at four park locations: Fort York, Corktown Common, Bell Manor Park and Christie Pits.
“Another World will unfold over nightly pairings of short and feature films that bring to life the microscopic worlds beneath our feet and of the far reaches of outer space; tales from the distant past and dystopian futures; and visions of escapist fantasies juxtaposed against unique spaces forged by communities building new, better worlds in the here-and-now,” TOPS says on its website.
The festival begins at Toronto’s Fort York historic site with a five-day opening weekend from June 22-26. The film Night Raiders is playing on June 22, followed by Everything Everywhere All At Once (June 23), Jurassic Park (June 24), Pan’s Labyrinth (June 25) and Velvet Goldmine (June 26).
Eats and treats will be available at the screenings at 7 p.m. and the showtime is set for sundown (approximately 9 p.m.). There will also be food and alcoholic beverages for sale. Guests must bring their own blanket and chairs.
All events are free to the public, but a charitable donation is encouraged. Advance ticketing is not required.
The film festival schedule for the rest of the summer is:
- Christie Pitts- Sundays July 9 – August 27
- Corktown Common- Thursdays July 6 – August 10
- Bell Manor Park- August 17-19
The full screening program for each festival will be released on May 30.
