Yonge-Dundas Square, located one of the busiest intersections in the city, has an excellent movie event on Tuesday nights. The Cult Classics series at the square has present free cult movies all summer, and that trend continues into August.
On Tuesday, August 14, 2012, Cult Classics brings a double bill of 1980s fantasy. Starting things off at 7:30 pm is The Princess Bride, Rob Reiner’s take on the genre with an all-star cast featuring Billy Crystal, Cary Elwes, Wallace Shawn and Christopher Guest. Labyrinth follows at 9:15 pm. David Bowie stars as baby-stealin’ Jareth the Goblin King in this film directed by Jim Henson.
The following week, August 21, 2012, Yonge-Dundas will be home to Terry Gilliam’s bureaucracy satire Brazil. The film is replete with bizarre set pieces and other oddities that have become Gilliam’s trademark. Closing off the series on August 28 is 1954′s Hush…Hush, Sweet Charlotte, starring Bette Davis and Joseph Cotten. Both of these films start at 8:00 pm.
All these classics are presented for free at Yonge-Dundas Square each Tuesday starting on August 14, 2012. Bring your own seating, or use what’s provided.
