Let’s face it: drive-in movies have been on their way out since the 1950s. Luckily, movie lovers looking to fill the void can find a similarly gasoline-scented film experience at Sail-In Cinema. For the fourth year, the festival is inviting cinephiles with sea legs (and enough dough to afford a boat) to drop anchor next to Corus Quay, where the Toronto Port Authority will mount a four-storey-tall, two-sided screen on a massive barge. There’s also plenty of room for landlubber attendees at Sugar Beach (you know, the one that Rob Ford thinks the city built while he was in rehab); they’ll just need to reserve a free ticket on the event’s website if they hope to catch one of the sundown screenings. With Jaws on the three-night bill—alongside Jurassic Park and E.T.—it might be best to watch from the safety of the shore, regardless.
