As summer approaches and the weather warms up, what better way to stay out late and enjoy the nice weather, than with free movies throughout Toronto. Various parks within Toronto will host movies, some of which are themed, almost all of the movies are family friendly and last but not least all of these are free. Did we mention that these are all FREE?! Be sure to get to these early as you might have guessed, seating is on a first come first serve basis. Plus on another note, you don’t have to worry about sneaking in snacks, as you’re more than welcome to bring your own food. So grab a couple friends, a blanket and some lawn chairs and enjoy!
