White Christmas and other holiday movies are playing for free this weekend at The Bloor Cinema

We Three (Christmas) Flicks

If you’re going to cozy up and watch holiday films anyway, why not firmly get into the spirit of holiday giving as well? The Bloor Cinema is having a showing of three Christmas films (White Christmas, A Christmas Story, It’s A Wonderful Life) this weekend and admission is free, provided that you make a small food or monetary donation.


Skate by the Lake

Skating at City Hall is so popular that it can feel more like an overpacked club than an ice rink. Instead, head over to 1 Love T.O.’s third annual ice skating party on Saturday by the Harbourfront, where it’s full of lights, music and free hot chocolate.


Anything but Christmas Carols

Just because it’s the holidays doesn’t mean you have to do everything associated with Christmas. For those looking for an un-merry, but nevertheless artistic and fun event, the poetry slam at The Drake Hotel might be your ticket. Tony Bewick, an environmentally conscious poet, is your maestro of words.


Amir-acle at SPiN on King Street

Ever want to play doubles with a celebrity? The Toronto Raptors’ Amir Johnson and 15 of his closest celebrity friends are hosting a charity ping pong tournament at SPiN, with the proceeds going to help fund The Remix Project. At least in ping pong, size (height) doesn’t matter.


Mmm... cookies

Looking for a morning activity for the whole family to enjoy? Head on up to Colborne Lodge at High Park bright and early on Sunday morning for the Christmas cookie creation for children. Whip up Canadian gingerbread recipes from the 1830s, then tour the Victorian house while they bake in the oven. Pre-registration is required.
