Holiday movie screenings in Toronto this year

Holiday movie screenings in Toronto fall into theatres in early December. Many of these screenings are completely free or help raise money and gather toys for local charities. Best of all, these classics will have you feeling cozy and warm inside.

Here's a round-up of holiday movie screenings in Toronto this year.


A Christmas Story (Dec. 10, The Revue)
This hilarious Christmas classic screening is completely free! But The Revue asks you to bring an unused or unwrapped toy as a donation to get in. The film starts at 4 p.m. and is the perfect way to hang out with the fam to remind them about the importance of the season through the movie's goofy lessons.

Black Christmas (Dec. 17, The Royal)
For those of you who have a twisted sense of humour and can see darkness during the holiday season, this is the Christmas horror slasher flick for you.

Screen Queens: Home Alone (Dec. 18, The Royal)
Screen Queens is like Mystery Science Theatre + Drunk History + Elvira and booze. Drag Queen Allysin Chaynes guide viewers through this screening with lots of commentary, jokes, giveaways and sass. You'll never watch this Christmas classic in the same way again.

Love Actually (Dec. 18, Hot Docs Cinema)
All Hot Docs Cinema holiday screenings are free and they're playing every Christmas classic you could ever want over the month of December. Love Actually is a new-school favourite, but it's such a cute one to watch with a good pal. Hot Docs also has a bar, so add wine to this screening and you'll be gushing tears the whole time.

Sound of Music (Dec. 26, TIFF Bell Lightbox
Another holiday tradition is this epic musical starring Julie Andrews and Toronto's very own Christopher Plummer. TIFF shows this classic in beautiful surround sound and you'll be singing along to every song because you know you know them all.
