Movie on the Rise

The Rise

We're bringing movie night back to St. Patrick's Island for one night only, and it's sure to be a spectacle! Gather under a big top of stars for 'The Greatest Showman' on Saturday, August 11. You'll experience outdoor cinema like never before at The Rise, a 9-metre-high natural amphitheatre at the center of the island.

Showtime is at 9:15pm, but it's best to arrive early to secure a spot on the hill and buy your snacks. Our friends at Sugar Creek Kettle Corn and the Sugar Cube will provide the circus staples – popcorn and cotton candy. 

As always, it's best to access the island by foot, bike, and public transit. There is pedestrian access from East Village via the George C. King Bridge.

This event is free to attend and open to all.
