City Cinema 2019: Planes, Trains and Automobiles
YONGE-DUNDAS SQUARE (YDS) will once again present Toronto’s favourite outdoor film series, City Cinema, with a hilarious live twist! Every Tuesday this summer at 8pm, City Cinema will host a live performance by The Second City before screening the funniest films featuring The Second City alumni John Candy, Catherine O’Hara, Eugene Levy, Mike Myers and more!
The Second City will bring the Square to life with hot improv sets all summer long to warm up the audience before each screening! The cast includes Alan Shane Lewis, Natalie Metcalfe, Christian Smith, Matt Folliott, Clare McConnell, and Jillian Welsh.
On July 9, City Cinema will present a film starring one of Canada’s most beloved comedic actors: John Candy in Planes, Trains and Automobiles (1987). This classic film follows Neal Page (Steve Martin) as he tries to get home to spend Thanksgiving with his family. After travel delays in the sky and on the ground, his sanity begins to fray. Worse yet, he is forced to bunk up with talkative Del Griffith (John Candy). Together they must overcome every obstacle of holiday travel and survive each other.
