Drive-in movies and 8 local businesses to check out on the Eglinton Way this fall

TRNTO x Eglinton Way BIA

The charming Eglinton Way neighbourhood in Toronto, just north of Forest Hill, has a variety of events coming this fall! To kick off the season, the Eglinton Way BIA is hosting a drive-in movie event with some classics, including Grease, The Sound of Music and Jurassic Park on Sunday September 12th, 19th and 26th. Each car load costs $20 and comes with a bag of popcorn (all proceeds will go towards the Daily Bread Food Bank). What better way to kick off the school year!

In addition to the drive-in movie nights, the Eglinton Way offers everything from art galleries to spas and salons and more.
