Good news for our Mississauguaguaguanian readers: UTM, as part of its fourtieth anniversary, is hosting “Flicks on the Field,” two free family-friendly outdoor movies shown on a big screen with (and it’s good that they note this as far as outdoor screenings go) “professional projection and sound.” Hopefully no one in the audience will hold it against them that the traditional gift for fourtieth anniversaries is rubies, not film screenings.
Both “Flicks” screenings will take place on the lawn in front of South Building, beginning with tonight’s better-than-you’d-expect Night at the Museum, at about 9 p.m. Even better, though, is the September 12 screening: the excellent Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, a film made before, amazingly, everyone but its fourth-year students were born. The films have rain date of August 14 and September 19, respectively.
No word yet on what the downtown U of T film screening will be, but it’ll be hard not to beat last year’s pick, Mean Girls.
