The Drive-in Returns
One of Toronto's best kept secrets is back. The drive-in movie theatre at Polson Pier (aka the Docks) is up and running again after being closed all last summer. Located on the eastern edge of the Toronto harbour, in the Portland's, the Polson Pier drive-in is just minutes from the downtown core and offers a unique movie going experience that usually isn't found in the city. Polson Pier does this by converting its golf driving range into the drive-in theatre at night, and now has two screens, which both offer double bills that begins at dusk. I love going to the drive-in, because you can enjoy the movie in the comfort of your own car, and not have to worry about stupid people disrupting you by answering their phone or talking. Plus you can bring your own snacks and drinks and even your dogs. A great way to spend a summer's evening.
