outdoor movie

Are all of you film-lovers ready ? This season’s outdoor movies in Toronto has started!

Well, when I say “about to start”, I mean not right now ! Although last year’s films were announced pretty early on, this year’s organizers seem to want to wait a little more and keep us in the dark. After a tiring search on the Internet (on the plus side, with a hot chocolate because of the weather), I could only find two organizations that are willing to share their schedule for the months to come.

We have that going for us, which is nice!

Christie Pits Film Festival starts on the 5th of July at sundown for his opening night with a title quite promising : “A Toronto Symphony of Horror”.

Three films will be shown to a terrified public (or not, we’ll see). First up is Nosferatu, directed by F. W. Murnau. What’s special about this projection, it will be featured by a live-score performance and original composition by Del Bel. What a treat!

The other two films of the night will be : Wakening, directed by Danis Goulet and Silent Garden, directed by Dylan Reibling. I can tell you this night is going to be legendary!

Stay tuned!

Hi Everyone! I am back with more dates for this summer’s outdoor movie frenzie! This time, it is Open Roof Festival’s turn to announce all the films that will be scheduled for their 6th season. And I can tell you that the selection is quite interesting!

Let’s begin with the first film that will be shown on opening night, which will be the incredible Kurt Cobain : Montage of Heck on June 17. This chef-d’oeuvre will set the mood for the upcoming movies of this summer! But before each film, a band will come up on stage and perform their original songs just for you! Isn’t that wonderful news?
