Sometimes the most fun things to do in Toronto are the simplest ones like watching movies outside in the night air, a summer pastime dating back to old school drive-ins of the 60s and 70s. You can experience this summer entertainment at Harbourfront Centre, which is offering free films every Wednesday night from July 3 to August 28, 2013 at the WestJet Stage.

Norm Wilner, NOW Magazine’s film critic, chose the films to underscore this year’s theme of Invented Worlds, films which are fantasy-focused and ripe from the imaginations of their directors and writers. The following films will be screened on Wednesday evenings at Harbourfront in the summer of 2013 rain or shine:
