The season of cinema under the stars is going strong here in our city! Pretty soon, locals will be able to catch free outdoor movies at Evergreen Brick Works.
As the grand finale to the Toronto Outdoor Picture Show (TOPS), the city can look forward to an entire weekend of open-air cinema at the picturesque Brick Works grounds.
Films will be screened for three consecutive evenings at the end of August and are chosen based on this year’s curatorial theme: Another World.
The films will transport audiences to a “myriad of different worlds, from unique microcosms of the everyday to fantastical spaces of the imagination,” according to the festival.
“Located in Toronto’s ravine system, Evergreen Brick Works is a year-round destination where the world comes to experience sustainability in action,” says TOPS.
“Once an industrial brick factory, now it is an internationally renowned showcase of green design and a spectacular public space.”

The free outdoor movies at Evergreen Brick Works will take place under covered pavilions.
These shelters will provide protection from inclement weather, which is key because the films will be playing rain or shine.

Remember to bring your own chair because this screening area will take place on paved ground.
Enjoy the show, friends!
