Catering to a broader audience, our Outdoor Screening programme strives to create special and accessible venues – in the waterfront parks and also in the south end of Barrie at Park Place – with family-friendly films presented free-of-charge to the Barrie community. These screenings are a good fit in collaboration with the Lawn Chair Luminata: Waterfront series, which brings together theatre, music, film and art set in beautiful Heritage and Centennial Parks in downtown Barrie.

Here are the 2017 screening dates to mark on your calendar.



The Secret Life of Pets (2016)

Max (Louis C.K.) is a spoiled terrier who enjoys a comfortable life in a New York building until his owner adopts Duke, a giant and unruly canine. During their walk outside, they encounter a group of ferocious alley cats and wind up in a truck that’s bound for the pound. Luckily, a rebellious bunny named Snowball swoops in to save the doggy duo from captivity. In exchange, Snowball demands that Max and Duke join his gang of abandoned pets on a mission against the humans who’ve done them wrong.

All musically gifted race-driver Lucky Jackson (Elvis Presley) wants in Las Vegas is to score enough money for a new car motor so he can win the Grand Prix. When he encounters sexy swimming instructor Rusty (Ann-Margret), he considers staying around longer. After Lucky loses his winnings in the hotel pool, he’s forced to remain in Vegas long enough to win back his dough — but now he also wants to win Rusty’s heart. Unfortunately, so does his slick racing enemy, Elmo (Cesare Danova).

Dapper Koala Buster Moon presides over a once-grand theater that has fallen on hard times.

Facing the crumbling of his life’s ambition, he takes one final chance to restore his fading jewel to its former glory by producing the world’s greatest singing competition. Five contestants emerge: a mouse, a timid elephant, a pig, a gorilla and a punk-rock porcupine.
