On August 18-20, 2016 Canada’s Sugar Beach will transform into Toronto’s largest outdoor movie theatre. Movies will be shown under the open skies on a two-sided screen set atop a barge in Toronto Harbour. You can watch movies for free from Sugar Beach or Lake Ontario, and this year there are no tickets required to attend.
Gates will open at 6:00 p.m. each night with the film starting at approximately 8:00 p.m.
If you’ve got your sea legs, you can come to the movies by boat and drop anchor.
If you’re a landlubber, bring a chair, a cushion or a picnic blanket.
Think Sail-In Cinema™ sounds like an awesome event? You’re not the only one. Sail-In Cinema™ won Gold at Marketing Magazine’s Marketing Awards for best Experiential/Stunts/Events initiative of 2011 as well as Silver for best in Commercial Services at the Media Innovation Awards and a Certificate of Merit for advertising from the The Advertising & Design Club of Canada in 2012.
The inaugural Sail-In Cinema™ was held in 2011 to mark PortsToronto centennial year. Sail-In-Cinema 2015 was the largest on record with over 11,000 people on-land and over 100 boats in attendance over three days.
Sail-In Cinema™ is now a permanent fixture on Toronto’s summer calendar.
While Sail-In Cinema is a free event, there is limited seating on the landside and entry is subject to availability of space. Boat mooring will be available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Non-stop activities, food and entertainment will once again be offered by event sponsors prior to the start of each night’s feature film to provide a full evening of fun for all ages.
