Sunday, July 22, 2012, brings the beginning of a three weekend set of coming-of-age classics at Christie Pits Park. The Christie Pits Film Festival, now in its second year, is presented in association with The Revue Cinema and Open Roof Film Festival. It consists of three free screenings outside at Christie Pits (Bloor Street West and Christie Street) showing around 9:00 pm, or just after dusk.
The film programme is titled When We Were Young, and as such will feature films that encapsulate youth. Screening on Sunday July 22, 2012, is Big (1988), where a 12-year-old boy wishes for adulthood and gets more than he bargained for (in the body of Tom Hanks). Cinema Paradiso (1988), the Italian classic about a boy who helps run a local projection booth, will play Sunday, July 29. The final night of the festival, Sunday August 12, will be a viewer’s choice. To vote for the film that you want to see close the festival, or simply find more information, visit the Christie Pits Film Festival on Facebook.
The festival is free of charge, or pay-what-you-can. Event dates are July 22, July 29 and August 12, 2012. Follow Christie Pits Film Festival on twitter @ChristiePitsFF.
