Launched in June by INK Entertainment as Toronto’s first contactless outdoor concert and entertainment venue, CityView Drive-In is thrilled to host the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) and offer a safe screening experience for Toronto movie lovers this festival season.
“Motivated to always push the entertainment envelope, it was important INK Entertainment adapted to this new way of life and produced a venue that could accommodate guests while traditional indoor avenues were forced to close their doors,” says Charles Khabouth, CEO, INK Entertainment. “We opened CityView Drive-In as a safe and creative solution to bring entertainment to our local community, and we are pleased to share our venue as a safe resource to showcase the beloved film festival’s programming.”
Designed to host 200+ vehicles in reserved parking spots a minimum of seven feet apart, guests can enjoy TIFF films from a massive state-of-the-art digital screen from the comfort of their own vehicle. To listen, guests will be provided with a designated FM radio frequency to tune in from their cars without needing to lower their windows. Concessions will also be available for online purchase and contactless delivery to the guest’s vehicle. As always during TIFF, attendees can look forward to fun activations and sampling onsite.
