Free outdoor screenings of each of them, the same night, at the same time, we mean.
What’s better than watching a film outdoors under the stars? Watching a free film outdoors under the stars, of course. This Wednesday, July 18, both TIFF in the Park and the Harbourfront Centre are holding outdoor screenings: as part of their summer “Rise of the Underdog” line-up, the Harbourfront Centre is screening Leon Gast’s legendary Academy Award–winning 1996 documentary When We Were Kings, which examines the rise of Muhammad Ali, and culminates in the boxer’s Rumble in the Jungle fight with George Foreman. (It’s a film just slightly more serious than the films screened in previous weeks at the Harbourfront, Office Space and Zoolander.) That same night, a bit north, TIFF in the Park is screening Raising Arizona, the 1987 Coen brothers comedy about a couple who get more than they bargain for when their plan to kidnap a baby goes awry.
When We Were Kings, July 18, 9 p.m. WestJet Stage, Harbourfront Centre, 235 Queens Quay W., harbourfrontcentre.com. Free.
Raising Arizona, July 18, 9:15 p.m. David Pecaut Square, 55 John St., tiff.net. Free.
