Toronto’s beloved summer tradition of free movies in the park is making a comeback! Toronto Outdoor Picture Show (TOPS) is returning for its 13th year this June.

There will be 21 films to see this summer and they will be played at four public spaces around the city — Fort York, Corktown Common, Bell Manor Park, and Christie Pits Park.

The movie screenings are free to the public and will run from June 22nd to August 27th.

This year’s program theme is called “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,” said the festival in a press release.

The 2023 season will kick off with a banner five-night opening weekend at Fort York National Historic Site, from June 22nd to 26th.

All of the screenings throughout the festival will be accompanied by one or more short films, so you’ll be getting some bonus entertainment too!

Food will be available for purchase on-site, and there will also be cocktails and non-alcoholic drinks for sale at Fort York.

The films will be presented with open captioning and five will have optional audio description as well.
