Outdoor Films

Catering to a broader audience, our Outdoor Screening programme strives to create special and accessible venues in public spaces with family-friendly movie screenings presented free-of-charge to the Barrie community. These screenings are a good fit in collaboration with the Downtown BIA’s Lawn Chair Luminata: Waterfront series, which brings together theatre, music, film and art set in various downtown locations.

2019 Schedule

Celebrate Barrie


June 1 (rain date Jun 8)
Centennial Beach

1984 – 105 minutes
Rated PG – for scary scenes, mild language, suggestive content

A trio of university parasychologists lose their research grant and decide to open their own business, “Ghostbusters,” and almost at once are summoned to investigate the strange happenings in a Central Park West apartment. What they discover is that all Manhattan is being besieged by other worldly demons.
