Fort York gets a free outdoor film festival

The world is our movie theatre in Toronto this summer, with free screening after free screening taking over our parks and patios. The Outdoor Movie Festival, a cross-Canadian series of free outdoor flicks backed by Scotiabank, is bringing us another set of opportunities to laugh, cry and nostalgia-trip under the starry skies - this time, on the grass at Fort York throughout August.

The just-announced lineup of Tuesday night screenings proves, once again, that you can't have an outdoor movie screening series without Ghostbusters. In addition to the perennially slimy action/comedy classic, which will hit the screens August 19, the slate features crowd-pleasers like Jurassic Park (August 5), The Breakfast Club (August 12), and the mercifully Tobey Maguire-free Amazing Spider-Man 2 (August 26). There's free popcorn for the first 300 folks at each screening; the fun starts at sundown.
