Free Sci-Fi Flicks at Yonge-Dundas Square Every Tuesday
Starting tomorrow and for the rest of the summer, some of the greatest Science Fiction flicks ever made will be shown at Yonge-Dundas Square. It's all free and outdoors. So be sure to catch your favourites under the starry skies this summer. The projector rolls at 8pm every Tuesday night; here's a rundown of the movies:
Forbidden Planet - June 26
The most lavish Sci-Fi production before Star Wars. Beautiful space women, monsters, robots, lasers... it has everything!
2001: A Space Oddessey - July 3
Stanley Kubrick's mega opus poses some of the most ponderous questions ever in all of cinema. One of my absolute favourites.
Sleeper - July 10
Woody Allen's wonderfully odd, slapstick adventure. Contains some of his silliest and greatest gags. This was Woody before he met Annie Hall.
Close Encounters of the Third Kind - July 17
Steven Spielberg made his foray into the genre with this memorable classic.
Blade Runner - July 24
Ridley Scott likes his Sci-Fi universes dark and somber; Blade Runner (at least the Director's Cut) is one of the most depressing movies ever made; but it's essential viewing.
Brazil - July 31
If the studios don't leave him the hell alone, Terry Gilliam will never be able to make another film like Brazil again. Madness; dreams; a fantastical dystopia like no other! It's 1984 filtered through the mind of a former Monty Python.
Gattaca - August 7
Clones run amok in this fan-favourite from the mind that brought us the Truman Show.
The Matrix - August 14
Even your grandma likes this movie.
Minority Report - August 21
Spielberg's take on Philip K. Dick. A break-neck paced adventure with striking visuals and a little bit of Dick's quirkiness sprinkled in for good measure.
Metropolis (with Trip Hop beats) - August 28
Fritz Lang's influential silent classic will be accompanied by the electronic stylings of Canadian producer, composer, remixer and dj Andrew McPherson.
