One Great Lake, One Giant Screen: Sail In Cinema August 18-20 2016

Sail In Cinema

Aug 9, 2016

PortsToronto presents Sail-In Cinema™, the world’s first two-sided floating movie experience of it’s kind.

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.

Sylvan’s brilliant G3 CLZ DC brings an entirely new level of performance, comfort and versatility to Canadian boaters.

By Craig Ritchie

While Canadians may have been slower to warm to pontoon boats than our southern neighbours, that’s definitely changed as we see more of them gracing our waters every year. The latest data shows pontoon boats now represent around 30% of all new boats sold in Canada and it’s easy to understand why – with their interior space and tremendous versatility, pontoons are near-perfect family runabouts.

Cruising Georgian Bay’s 30,000 Islands: Canada’s Freshwater Paradise for Boaters

By Elizabeth Wilson, “Georgian Bay Beauties” (www.GeorgianBayBeauties.org)

The Plan

It’s a beautiful morning as we perform our pre-departure checklist, fire up the engines and prepare to release our lines. And if the long-range forecast of very low winds coupled with plenty of sunshine holds, that’s exactly what we need for the areas we plan to explore on this trip! 

We are departing Midland for a week of visiting some of the islands and anchorages within Georgian Bay’s “30,000 Islands” – specifically those along the western edge. These are the less protected islands which face toward wide-open Georgian Bay, where boaters often have to depart the small craft route and work a little harder at setting the hook but are then rewarded with magnificent western views, stunning sunsets, and so much to explore!
