Please take transit, bike or walk to Sorauren Avenue Park. The streets are narrow and busy in the neighborhood, and there is no parking in the park.

The next screening in the park’s regular Outdoor Movie Season will be the kid special Moana, in support of renovations at Charles G. Williams playground.

Slimed! Ghostbusters movie cancelled due to rain

We’ve been slimed! Tonight’s screening (August 25) of Ghostbusters, and the pizza dinner, have been cancelled due to the weather.

Thanks again to our sponsors Dundas West Animal Hospital, Master Mechanic High Park, the Roncesvalles branch of Meridian Credit Union, and Pizzeria Defina.

The ground is already wet, and that big green slime blob (aka rain) is coming our way. No movie tonight.
