School’s out for summer, which means it is time to rock on down to YONGE-DUNDAS SQUARE for the city’s favourite outdoor screenings, City Cinema, every Tuesday at 8pm from June 26 – August 28.

YDS is providing Toronto the ultimate summer soundtrack with Rockumentaries; a lineup of non-fiction films that are sure to cause treble as they explore the life and times of some of North America’s most beloved musical acts, featuring different artists and their signature sounds each week.

On August 7, another award-winning documentary joins the slate as YDS screens Amy (2015), a profile of British singer Amy Winehouse. This film moves beyond the controversy surrounding the star, celebrating her life and numerous musical accomplishments up to her death at age 27 in 2011. Highlights include previously unreleased tracks by the soulful singer, and intimate interview sessions with friends and family.

Each feature screening will include an opening short from the Live at Massey Hall series, the 2018 Live Music Industry Award-winner for Brand/Music Program of the Year at Canadian Music Week. Live at Massey Hall showcases Canada’s next generation of musical stars in live concert recordings at Toronto’s legendary music hall. For full details please visit the YDS website.
