For a cheap night out in Toronto, look no further than Union Station. Along with its newly opened food market, the transit hub will be showing movies in the Sir John. A Macdonald Plaza all summer long. Best of all, these screenings, which start tonight and run every Wednesday until August 31, are completely free.
Each movie in the summer-long lineup either features an iconic train-related scene or is thematically linked to some sort of journey. Prior to each feature, the folks at Union Station will screen a NFB short. Hurrah for CanCon!
Here's what you can expect to see this summer:
- June 29 - Stand By Me
- July 6 - Triplets of Belleville
- July 13 - Wizard of Oz
- July 20 - Who Framed Roger Rabbit?
- July 27 - Best Exotic Marigold Hotel
- Aug. 3 - Silver Streak
- Aug. 10 - Room with a View
- Aug. 17 - Some Like it Hot
- Aug. 24 - Murder on the Orient Express
- Aug. 31 - Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade
Stand By Me starts at 9 p.m. tonight and every other movie will begin at sunset.
