Toronto summer screening series just got a whole lot cooler. Next weekend will feature three straight nights of Sail-in Cinema, a series that focuses on everything “on, above, or beneath the water.” The best part? All the films will be screened outside, at night and on the beach.
Sail-In Cinema begins its second season on Thursday, August 16, 2012, with The Poseidon Adventure (1972). This disaster film features Gene Hackman and Leslie Nielsen in a serious role as the doomed ship’s Captain. The Creature from the Black Lagoon, a classic monster movie from 1954, inhabits the screen the following night on Friday, August 17. Closing off the week on Saturday, August 18, is Hook, Steven Spielberg’s take on J.M. Barrie’s tale of Peter Pan.
Sail-In Cinema, presented by the Toronto Port Authority, brings three aquatically-themed films to the screen at Sugar Beach on August 16, 17 and 18, 2012. The movies start after dusk, or around 8:45 pm. Tickets are free, and reservations can be made on their website. Be sure to bring all your beach essentials, since seating is not provided. Alternatively, you can even anchor your boat and watch the movie from there!
