Free outdoor movies in one of Toronto's newest parks

There's only one thing better than outdoor summer events: free outdoor summer events. The Toronto Outdoor Picture Show (TOPS) is hosting their third year of outdoor film screenings, every Thursday in July, at Corktown Common.

Here you can expect to see four great movies and shorts for free — there is a suggested donation of $10 — and indulge in food service that starts before the movies at 7:00 p.m. It's BYOBlankie and movies start at sundown, or 9 p.m.

Each film will be paired with a short that explores Toronto. This may sound familiar to the Christie Pits Film Festival and that makes sense because TOPS runs both. 

The venue is accessible and films will be screened with captioning when it's available. 

Here's a list of the films screening at Corktown Common this summer.

Thursday, July 5

Short film: Long Branch 
Feature film: Roman Holiday (featured city: Rome) 

Thursday, July 12

Short film: Pole and OK TV 
Feature film: Scott Pilgrim vs. the World (featured city: Toronto)

Thursday, July 19

Short film: She Stoops to Conquer 
Feature film: Cabaret (featured city: Berlin)

Thursday, July 26

Short film: BLMTO: Black Pride and 100 Musicians 
Feature film: Selma (featured city: Selma)

There's also a scheduled rain date on August 2 if one of the earlier movie screenings gets cancelled.
