Outdoor drive-in movie festival is coming back to Ontario Place this summer

Grab the popcorn and your keys because Ontario Place will be hosting a huge outdoor drive-in movie festival this summer.

The Italian Contemporary Film Festival (ICFF) and CHIN Radio/TV are teaming up for the Lavazza Drive-In Film Festival to explore films from around the world on the screen at Ontario Place with Toronto's waterfront as the backdrop. 

Similar to last year, this second edition promises a selection of international films that celebrate Canada's multiculturalism and diversity with movies representing a number of cultural backgrounds.

"The film selection will guarantee to shed a light on the intricate texture of Canadian society, bringing forward a vast collection of multicultural stories which will reflect the values of inclusivity and acceptance," says the description.

You can also expect a special Focus Italia series in partnership with the Italian Embassy in Ottawa.

Besides the films, there will also be red carpet appearances, celebrity guests and hosts, and of course, concession snacks.

The festival runs from June 27 to July 17 with ticket prices depending on the number of people per car. Three-movie packages range from $90 for one or two people per car and $150 for three or more per car.
