Here are all the free movies at Christie Pits this summer

Summertime in Toronto is almost here and that means the return of free outdoor movie screenings in Christie Pits.

The Christie Pits Film Festival has announced its 2018 season with the theme of Cinematic Cities, a collection of films that aim to bring urban landscapes from all over the world to Toronto for the summer.

Get ready to cozy up under the few stars we can see and take a trip to Baltimore during the 1960's with the season opener of John Waters' iconic Hairspray on June 24.

Each film will be paired with a short from a local film maker that explores the inner workings of Toronto itself.

Screenings are free to attend and there will be food and drinks served starting at 6 p.m., before the movie starts at sundown.
