Ontario Place continues to transform.

On Thursday night, Cinesphere at Ontario Place reopened, for the first time in years, with regular screenings now scheduled at the iconic theatre.

During its reopening event, Eleanor McMahon, Minister of Tourism Culture and Sport, announced that movie screenings at Cinesphere will be part of Ontario Place’s winter programming, which includes the site’s final Ontario 150-themed activities.

One such upcoming event is Winter at Ontario Place, which is scheduled to run from early December to March 2018. Winter at Ontario Place will feature a magical light exhibition, with illuminated installations by local artists.

According to the event’s call for proposals earlier this year, the Winter Light Exhibition will celebrate the innovative and creative legacy, and they’re looking for sculptures that project light, shape light, transmit light, reflect light and/or contain light. There will be up to 14 locations for the big exhibit, throughout the 15-acre West Island.

But the excitement doesn’t stop there.

McMahon also announced that Ontario Place is getting an outdoor synthetic ice rink. That’s right, Toronto will have another outdoor skating venue come winter.

So get your skates ready for a magical winter wonderland, Toronto!
