THE STORY
In Berlin in 1931, American cabaret singer Sally Bowles (Liza Minnelli) meets British academic Brian Roberts (Michael York), who is finishing his university studies. Despite Brian's confusion over his sexuality, the pair become lovers, but the arrival of the wealthy and decadent playboy Maximilian von Heune (Helmut Griem) complicates matters for them both. This love triangle plays out against the rise of the Nazi party and the collapse of the Weimar Republic.

TRANSIT - Take the 501 or 504 Streetcar to the River Street Stop. Walk a few minutes South to Corktown Common and look for the Big Screen.

My friend, Penny, has helped us with directions to Corktown Common Park. Be sure to read this:
Take the 504 from Broadview and get off at River, just over the bridge from Broadview. Now there is a detour but don't let that deter you. It's just a short walk down river to the common. Coming from the west, take King car 504, from Yonge to River. Again there is a detour to Broadview station due to tracks installation. Buses are running. Don't let that deter you.

PARKING - Unfortunately, parking can be difficult in this area. If you're lucky you will be able to find parking along King St., Queen St., or the side streets. In this case the TTC is really the better way!!

There is no fee for this movie, however they do ask that you donate what you can. $5 to $10 would be perfect.

We look forward to seeing you there!!
