Hard to believe it’s already almost June! I think June has also snuck up too quickly for everyone, since a few of our Rep Cinemas this week don’t have anything past Thursday, May 31 on their calendars (as of the time of this post, anyway). Don’t worry; as per usual, Toronto cinema goers are spoiled for choice at the Reps. Just use the links below to see what’s playing, and check out their websites later in the week to see what new stuff they scheduled for your weekend viewing pleasure.
Bloor Hot Docs Cinema
Marley, the new Kevin Macdonald-directed biographical documentary on musician Bob Marley continues, playing on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday this week. Last Call at the Oasis, a documentary that examines the state of the world’s water supply, also continues screening at various times every day this week. On Tuesday, May 26 at 6:45 pm is a special gala screening of Peace One Day. Friday and Saturday evening feature The Beat Hotel, a documentary about a run down house in the Latin Quarter in Paris in the late 1950s that housed many of the luminaries of the American Beat movement. The weekend will see some classics on offer, with the visually poetic 1982 documentary Koyaanisqatsi on Saturday at 3:30 pm, and The Goonies (1985) on Sunday at 3:30 pm. Check their website for all the details and showtimes.
Continuing this week at the Fox are the documentary Jiro Dreams of Sushi and Terence Davies’ new film The Deep Blue Sea, starring Tom Hiddleston and Rachel Weisz. Also screening, starting Tuesday, May 29 is Bully, the recent documentary from Lee Hirsch about bullies in the school yard. For anything playing after Thursday, May 31, or for details and showtimes, please check out their website.
The Projection Booth will have multiple screenings of Battle Royale, A Place Called Los Pereyra, The Corridor and Portrait of Wally throughout this week. On Saturday, June 2 at 9:00 pm, they’ll be a Street Fighter costume party, featuring a screening (of course) of the 1994 Jean-Claude Van Damme classic, an open bar, and a best/sexiest costume contest!

For anything playing after Thursday, May 31, please check the Royal’s website for details and showtimes.
Toronto Underground Cinema
This week at the Underground, the focus isn’t on films but rather on other kinds of events – they’ve got a clash of the comics on Friday, and a Super Smash burlesque show on Saturday. Check out their website for details and showtimes.
