City Cinema: Festival Express
City Cinema: Rockumentaries
School’s out for summer, which means it is time to rock on down to Yonge-Dundas Square for the city’s favourite outdoor screenings, City Cinema, every Tuesday at 8pm from June 26 – August 28. YDS is providing Toronto the ultimate summer soundtrack with Rockumentaries; a lineup of non-fiction films that are sure to cause treble as they explore the life and times of some of North America’s most beloved musical acts, featuring different artists and their signature sounds each week.
On June 26, Festival Express (2003), featuring the Grateful Dead, Janis Joplin, and The Band, will start the summer film series on a high note. Thirty-three years in the making, the documentary depicts the 1970 cross-Canada tour of the same name, combining live concert recordings, behind-the-scenes tour footage, and oral history interviews.
