Free popcorn and movies at new backyard film series

Outdoor movies in Toronto are becoming something of a summer tradition. There's always room in town for another impromptu movie theatres - especially when free popcorn is involved. Belljar Cafe, near Dundas and Roncesvalles, has just announced that they'll begin hosting evening movie screenings on their back patio.

Every Tuesday night until September, the cafe will be showing a series of crowd-pleasing flicks (Terminator 2, Donnie Darko and Groundhog Day are a couple notable selections). The series will occasional skew a little more highbrow, with the addition of some special guests. Monkey Warfare director Reg Harkema was on hand to introduce a screening of the film earlier this week, and on July 17, Fat Girl Food Squad will launch a three-part screening series on food, body image and feminism, starting with a showing of A Place at the Table. (And no, I wasn't kidding about the free popcorn.)
