2015 Outdoor Movies in Toronto

Over the past few years there has been a huge surge in demand for outdoor movies, but who can blame us, what better way to spend a summer evening than taking the big screen outdoors? Luckily for us, some amazing community organizations are providing a great line up movies for summer 2015!

Bring a blanket or lawn chair, dress warm (we may be having a hot summer but the nights still get cool!), and of course don't forget the popcorn. 

Some of these movies come with bonus entertainment features, so it's more than just a typical night at the movies!
