'Get Out' returning to theaters for free screenings
Each guest must present a valid ID to receive the ticket, with a limit of one ticket per valid ID presented, while supplies last. Each patron who requests a ticket on the day of the screening will be given one free admission, up to theater capacity.

In usual circumstances, this amount of rainfall falls below warning criteria.

The wet and mild weather spell comes from a series of low pressure systems moving along a warm front across the lower Great Lakes.

The TRCA says the Old Mill bridge crossing the Humber River and the lower portion of the Don River could be susceptible to ice jams caused by the rain and mild conditions, though other areas could see flooding as well. "However, multi-day rainfall totals in the 30 to 50 mm range are likely in some areas", Environment Canada said. The weather agency forecasts a high of 13 C, a 0.1 C higher than the current record high of 12.9 C reached in 1997.
