It doesn't get more romantic than this

Frankly, Collingwood, the stars make a beautiful backdrop for a classic scene.

Marlon Brando is coming to Collingwood’s waterfront.

Well, sort of.

Brando and Vivien Leigh will be on the big screen in A Streetcar Named Desire, which is playing at the Shipyards Amphitheatre for Classic Movies On the Bay.

The film is one of a series of four playing on the first and third Sundays of July and August beginning at dusk. The first film, Casablanca, played at the amphitheatre following the Canada Day fireworks.

A Streetcar Named Desire plays this Sunday (July 15). Next is Singin’ in the Rain (Aug. 5) and North by Northwest (Aug. 19). The films start at dusk.

In the event of rain, the films will play at the Simcoe Street Theatre.

Bring a blanket and someone to snuggle. The film is free thanks to a partnership between the town of Collingwood, On the Bay/Classical 102.9 FM and sponsor, Fram and Slokker.
