Open Roof Fest, the summer long festival that supports two of my favourite passions: music and film, returns to Toronto this week, providing your weekly live music and awesome movie fix.

movies

This year the films screening include Richard Linklater’s Everybody Wants Some!!, Sing Street, The Lobster, TIFF darling Sleeping Giant, Off The Rails, A Bigger Splash, My Blind Brother, and Hunt For the Wilderpeople.

music

Music includes Matrox, Fresh Show, Kayla Diamond, Bruce Peninsula, Tomi Swick, Grand Analog, Chloe Charles, Sam Drysdale, Yuka and Most People.

when & where

Opening night happens on Tuesday June 21st and it runs every Tuesday at 99 Sudbury until August 24th, with doors at 7pm, bands on at 8pm and movies starting at sunset around 9pm.

As usual, Amsterdam Brewery will be on hand for beer, and food trucks such as the Food Dudes are being incorporated this year to provide the eats.

If you’re looking for a great summer date night, there is no better way to impress your beau than with the latest Linklater movie + beers under the stars. They pulled off a stellar lineup yet again this year. Be there.
