From the TIFF in the Park web site: “Every Wednesday at sunset beginning in July, TIFF and the Toronto Entertainment District BIA present FREE outdoor screenings of romantic classics at David Pecaut Square, directly west of Roy Thomson Hall.”
This evening, the film being presented is the incomparable “Casablanca” (1942) by director Michael Curtiz, starring Humphrey Bogart, Ingrid Bergman and Paul Henreid, and with memorable supporting turns by Claude Rains, Sydney Greenstreet, Peter Lorre and Dooley Wilson.
More about the movie at IMDB and Wikipedia.
What to bring
Bring your own chair or blanket to sit on with the group in the prime centre grass area. In addition, there are plastic fold-out chairs arranged at the back of the square; the sight-line is worse, and you would not be able to sit with the group, but this is an option should you wish. Dress appropriately for the weather, keeping in mind that evening temperatures can be cooler. You could also bring snacks for yourself and/or fellow attendees; your jaded and exhausted MAMAM organizers are known to appreciate such things too.
How, where and when to meet
I will be at the north side of the square, on the south side of King Street West, across the street from the Royal Alexandra Theatre, starting at 8:00 PM and will be there until 9:00 PM at the latest; the show time is 9:15 PM. Here is the location on Google Maps. I will wear my light-coloured Tilley hat and a name badge with a Meetup logo on a lanyard. Please plan to be on time! The earlier any of you can arrive, the better; it will help in reserving spots for other members still to arrive, and you will have time to grab a bite and/or use the nearest washroom facilities (in Metro Hall).
If you know beforehand that you will only be able to arrive at the last minute, please let me know ahead of time too. Also, I will send all registered participants my mobile phone number a few days before the event for last minute emergency coordination: you can text me and I can let you know where the group is seated.
Cancellation in the event of inclement weather
If the Environment Canada forecast the afternoon before the event calls for the possibility of thunderstorms in the evening, consider the group event automatically cancelled. You still would be free to attend on your own, but our group cannot accept the liability. Click here for the Environment Canada forecast page for Toronto.
Important MAMAM Fine Print
When you RSVP 'YES' to a Meetup event, it means that your Organizer will be expecting you there. To avoid being mark as a 'NO SHOW', please be courteous and change your RSVP to 'no' as early as possible before the RSVP cutoff date & time.
Cellphones must be turned off or kept in silent mode (no sound and no vibration) and MUST NOT be glanced at or used under any circumstances once previews have started, if you must use the phone please leave the seating area to do so. Use of your cell phone once previews have started could result in your removal from the group.
