Cinematic Cities at Parkway Forest Park
August 9 @ 7:00 pm - 11:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 7:00pm on Thursday, repeating until Thu August 30th 2018
On Thursday evenings from August 9th through August 30th, 2018, Toronto Outdoor Picture Show will present an outdoor film series titled “Cinematic Cities” for the Parkway Forest Park community. Each week of this series will explore a different international city’s depiction in cinema – from New York to Toronto, from Cannes to Mumbai. Throughout the series, short films set in Toronto will complement the feature films, allowing us to explore the diverse stories of our hometown onscreen. The overarching “Cinematic Cities” theme will draw bridges between vibrant and complex cities around the world, while highlighting the people who make each of these cities unique. We invite you to journey to Parkway Forest Park for a cinematic trip around the world, from your home across the street or across the city, just a stone’s throw from Don Mills station!
Arrive early – there will be different pre-show entertainment beginning at 7pm each evening! Pack your picnic and a blanket, and join your friends and neighbours for great films under the stars this summer.
