You'll find tons of perennial favourites on this year's program, but a whopping 52 out of the 133 buildings are listed as "New to Doors Open."
Among them are some of the city's most important film and TV studios, historic cinemas, post-production houses and sets.
"This year's theme, Film: The Great Romance, explores the city's film and television industry," reads an announcement for the 19th annual Doors Open Toronto festival.
Along with studios and sets, places to explore are said to include "the spaces where actors, designers, carpenters, makeup artists, animators, and writers hone their craft and help make Toronto North America's third largest screen-based production centre."

Like Game of Thrones? Suicide Squad? Spotlight? The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn? Visit the award-winning Toronto visual effects studio SPINVFX to ask questions about everything from Bella Cullen's vampire vision to the making of an ice slide on The Wall.
If production is of interest, explore the cranes and lighting systems used to make Suits, Degrassi, 12 Monkeys and many other programs happen at Sim Lighting + Grip.
I could go on, but you can also just explore the entire program here. You won't regret it.
