Sail In Cinema Is Back In TO This Summer

(Via CNW) With free outdoor movie screenings springing up all over Canada, Ports Toronto is stepping up, for the fifth year in a row, to host the  annual Sail-In Cinema floating movie festival being held August 20 to 22 at Sugar Beach. Each night at dusk (approximately 8:45 p.m.), a film will screen on one of North America’s largest screens, erected on a custom barge anchored in Toronto’s harbour. The event is free, but seating — at least on the shore — is limited, so it’s a good idea to get there early. Besides, the first 500 attendees on site each night will receive special seating and have the opportunity to win prizes from Sail-In Cinema partners. If you have your own boat and would rather watch from that, mooring is available, first come, first served.

And now for what everyone’s really interested in — what movies are playing? They’re all from the 80s:

  • Ghostbusters on Thursday, August 20
  • The Goonies on Friday, August 21
  • E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial on Saturday, August 22

If these need any introduction, you’re a lot younger than me, and you can see trailers for them at the Sail -In Cinema site. They were chosen by vote (5,465 votes, a record response). Sugar Beach is located at 25 Dockside Drive in Toronto.
