Once again, it’s a week filled with opportunities to gorge yourself on fantastic move fare at Toronto’s Rep Cinemas. From award-winning documentaries and the horrors of Fright Night, to recent Hollywood blockbusters and the 18th edition of the CFC Worldwide Short Film Festival – they’ve pretty much got something to please everybody’s palate.
Bloor Hot Docs Cinema
Last Call at the Oasis, a documentary that examines the state of the world’s water supply, continues screening at various times every day this week, with the exception of Friday and Saturday. And that’s because there’s another cool film festival taking over the theatre, beginning Tuesday, June 5. The CFC Worldwide Short Film Festival is on again, and will continue at the Bloor until Sunday, June 10.

There’s also a lone screening of Tim Burton’s new vampire comedy, Dark Shadows, on Friday, June 8.
However, the real excitement at the Fox is about what’s coming up at the end of June. They’re having a week-long Rep Revival film festival, running from June 22 to 28, screening some fantastic, crowd-pleasing classic movie fare.
