Sail-in-CinemaCanada's floating movie experience, Sail-In Cinema™ is back at the water's edge with a line up of 1980s favourites chosen by the public; the theme for this year's movies is 'Heroes of the Silver Screen.' For three August nights, Toronto's Sugar Beach will be transformed into the city's largest outdoor theatre where the audience watch movies on a two-sided screen anchored to a barge on Lake Ontario.
This year's movie line up includes:
•    Ghostbusters on Thursday August 15
•    The Princess Bride on Friday August 16
•    Back to the Future on Saturday August 17
"We're excited about this year's film choices," said TPA President and CEO, Geoffrey Wilson.  "Sail-In Cinema is a unique event and is one way that the TPA is helping Toronto rediscover and celebrate its vibrant harbour. These films are sure to draw Torontonians to the waterfront, and boaters to the water, to enjoy a summer evening under the stars watching three of the most entertaining movies from the 80s," he continued.
From August 15 to 17 Torontonians can enjoy the films from land or boat on each of the three nights. The two-sided 700-pound screen is 40 x 20 feet and will sit on a floating barge in Lake Ontario that is 60 x 90 feet in size.

The other movies on the shortlist included Raiders of the Lost Ark, which was a few votes shy of third place; Top Gun; Superman and Goldfinger.
Members of the public were invited to vote for the three movies that will be shown at this year's festival through TPA's Facebook page and the Sail-In Cinema™ website. The voting ran from July 18 to July 25 and nearly 1,400 votes were cast.
Free landside tickets for the third annual Sail-In Cinema™ are now available at www.sailincinema.com. While tickets are free, the TPA cautions that there is limited seating on the landside, and entry is subject to availability of space. Movies will start after sundown (approximately 8:45pm) and doors will open at 6:00 p.m. The first 500 ticketholders on site each night will receive special seating and attendees will have a chance to win several prizes from Sail-In Cinema™ partners. Sail-In Cinema™ is the only major movie festival in Toronto where boaters can sail-in, drop anchor and watch movies in Lake Ontario. Boat mooring will be available on a first come first served basis.
TPA is presenting Sail-In Cinema™ 2013 with the support of Toyota Canada Inc., Porter Airlines, North American Logistics Services Inc., The Waterfront BIA, Popchips, Keurig® and media partners: the Toronto Star, Metro, CP24 and 99.9 Virgin Radio.
