A great way for Torontonians to celebrate Canada’s sesquicentennial is in the heart of the city at Yonge-Dundas Square while catching a fun flick with City Cinema presented by NOW.
Yonge-Dundas Square is honouring all things Canadian with a lineup of films that feature Canucks, Comedy, and (John) Candy! The final film will be selected via an Audience Choice contest so City Cinema presented by NOW will close out the season with the most Canadian thing of all … democracy!
Every Tuesday at sunset from June 27 – August 29 (please check individual listings for start time), Yonge-Dundas Square becomes the best destination to pull up a chair and enjoy a movie featuring some of Canada’s greatest talent, including Catherine O’Hara, Seth Rogen, Dan Akyroyd, Jim Carrey, and Eugene Levy.
Each feature screening will be preceded by a film by the National Film Board of Canada (NFB) including William Shatner Sings Oh Canada, each evening along with I Can Make Art…Like Andrew Qappik and Never Lose Sight (June 27), The Sweater and Ryan (July 4), Margaret Laurence and First Lady of Manawak (July 11), Trans Canada Summer (July 18), and Ladies & Gentlemen…Mr. Leonard Cohen (July 25).
City Cinema will continue through August 29 with The Truman Show (August 1), The Great Outdoors (August 8), Take This Waltz (August 15), Men With Brooms (August 22), and NOW Audience Choice; visit nowtoronto.com/citycinemavote to choose the final screening of the summer (August 29), plus more NFB films!
Admission is FREE to all City Cinema screenings at YONGE-DUNDAS SQUARE!
