Sail in cinema

Sail-In Cinema returns with free movies by the water

Sail-In Cinema is a now an annual event, presenting a drive-in experience for the privileged masses who have their own boats, though it also tips its hat to the great unwashed, by offering the presentation on the flip-side of a massive 40'x20' screen to land-lubbers at Toronto Port Authority too. The 700 pound screen is sailed onto a lake with a 90 foot long custom barge. Thursday night was the first of three showings this year, with the classic comedy Ghostbusters on display. The Friday screening was The Princess Bride, and tonight's feature is Back to The Future.

Admission is totally free with a boat (space permitting), and the rest of us can obtain tickets (first come first served) from the event's web site.
