If you’re done (read: given up on) your Sunday crossword and drank your last cup of coffee (I know I’m not the only one who does this!), it is time to see what’s happening on today the Scene for Sunday, July 22, 2012.
As I mentioned in yesterday’s post, Grease and Labryinth are both playing again so if you saw one yesterday, you can see the other today. Both films play at 2:00 pm, at the Fox and the Revue, respectively. I guess it just depends on whether you’re feeling the East end or the West end this afternoon. Choose wisely!
At TIFF Bell Lightbox today, you have the option of going blonde or going French. Starting at 1:00 pm, the Frank Sinatra charmer Some Came Running continues the Gentleman Prefer Blondes series. There are two Summer in France screenings today. The first one, La Bandera, is at 5:00 pm, followed by La Grande Illusion at 7:30 pm. Pauline Kael called this film “one of the true masterpieces of the screen” so it isn’t one to be missed.
If you’re hanging out in the Annex, the Bloor is screening a diverse group of movies today. At 1:00 pm, the Spalding Grey documentary, Swimming to Cambodia is continuing its Bloor run. For a more bizarre and fictional adventure, check out Bubba Ho-Tep at 3:30 pm. And finally, following yesterday’s suit, there is the Canadian double bill of Peace Out and Neil Young Journeys at 6:30 pm and 9:00 pm.
To end your weekend off right, there are two outdoor screenings tonight at 9:00 pm. The Christie Pits Film Festival kicks off the first of three screenings with the 80s favourite Big. On the other hand, if you’re looking for a side of action with your nostalgia, Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark is being screened as part of Movies in the Park at Riverdale Park East.
That’s all for today on the Scene, my fellow cinephiles. Have a great week.
