Cinematheque and the WAG present a trio of contemporary and classic art docs and films!

Enjoy summer nights and amazing skyline views as you support local artists, performers, and other groups on the WAG’s stunning Rooftop Sculpture Garden!

Join us for this Rooftop Pop Up on Thursday, September 17, as Cinematheque and the WAG present Downtown 81 featuring Jean-Michel Basquiat!

Enhance your rooftop experience with a dinner from SMITH, the award-winning restaurant from Inn at the Forks. Inspired by the artists, performers and groups that will grace the WAG rooftop this summer, Executive Chef Barry Saunders has curated a selection of menus that are big on flavour and fun, using the best local suppliers.

For this event, choose between sweet soy-marinated pork satay or a tofu skewer over a sticky rice bowl with edamame, carrot, corn, and cucumber! Cash bar featuring select beer, wine and specialty cocktails available.

Watch the trailer:


*Please note, in the case of inclement weather, the event will relocate to an indoor space in the WAG and refunds will not be issued. For the latest updates, check this page.
