City Cinema 2019: Up
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 23, YDS invites people of all ages to enjoy Up (2009), starring The Second City alumni Ed Asner. Up is the Pixar animated favourite that tells the story of 78-year-old Carl Fredricksen. Tying thousands of balloons to his house, he flies away to the South American wilderness to fulfill a lifelong dream. But curmudgeonly Carl's worst nightmare comes true when he discovers a little boy named Russell is a stowaway aboard the balloon-powered house.
