Movies Under the Stars is back at Toronto’s Downsview Park this year for its seventh annual event. And as always, you can watch some of the best new releases for free.

The beloved movie program kicks off this July and will take place lakeside, in between the Orchard Pavilion and the Lake inside the park.

The showings are expected to start at dusk, at about 8 PM but everyone is encouraged to arrive an hour early to get the best viewing spot possible. It’ll be a picnic-style experience so bring what you need – blankets, chairs, for the ultimate movie-watching evening.
