The Toronto Port Authority presents Sail-In Cinema™, the world’s first two-sided floating movie experience.
For three summer nights, Canada’s Sugar Beach is transformed into Toronto’s largest outdoor theatre. Movies are 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.
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 the Toronto Port Authority’s centennial year and welcomed thousands of Torontonians to the newest part of the waterfront. More than 2,000 people and 70 boats came to the water’s edge to celebrate our anniversary and watch nautical-themed movies.
Sail-In Cinema™ is now a permanent fixture on Toronto’s summer calendar.
