Voting Begins for 5th Annual Sail-In Cinema
On June 18, PortsToronto officially released its shortlist of 1980s-themed films for the 5th annual Sail-In Cinema film festival, marking the beginning of public voting to determine this year’s movie line-up. The free movie festival will be held August 20 to 22 at Sugar Beach and offers boaters and landlubbers alike the unique opportunity to watch movies from land or water on one of North America’s largest screens, erected on a custom barge anchored in Toronto’s harbour.
Last year, Sail-In Cinema received more votes than ever before with 4,900 people voting for their favourite flicks. With the theme Flashback to the 80s, this year’s event offers a wide range of films for the community to choose from, including Flight of the Navigator, The Goonies, The Karate Kid, Beetlejuice, Batman, Uncle Buck, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, Ghostbusters, and more. The top three movies chosen by the public will be screened on Toronto’s waterfront this August.
Voting runs until July 16 and the three winning films will be announced shortly thereafter. Since launching in 2011 as part of PortsToronto’s centennial celebrations, Sail-In Cinema has grown to become a much-anticipated event for Torontonians, attracting up to 6,500 people on land and 90 boats each year.
