Tired from a night of partying? Lucky for you, there’s lots of reasons to retreat to the movies today. If you need help deciding, here’s what’s happening on the Scene for Sunday, August 19, 2012.
If you missed yesterday’s offerings at the Bloor Hot Docs Cinema yesterday, you have another chance today to see Dogtown and Z-Boys at 1:00 pm, Searching For Sugar Man at 6:30 pm, and This Space Available at 9:00 pm. However, at 3:30 pm, it’s Back to the Bloor with the fabulous musical Cabaret. That’s definitely where I’ll be this afternoon. I’ll take some Liza Minelli any day.
Speaking of classics, another great one is playing at TIFF Bell Lightbox at 1:00 pm as part of the Gentleman Prefer Blondes series. The Doris Day/Rock Hudson comedy, Pillow Talk, is a perfect Sunday afternoon movie. For a double bill this evening, check out the James Ivory: Elegant Pairings series. At 5:00 pm and 8:00 pm, The Bostonians and Maurice are playing. With Vanessa Redgrave in the first film, and Hugh Grant in the second, it is guaranteed to be enjoyable.
It’s been a beautiful weekend, so you should end it with an outdoor screening of The Princess Bride at Riverdale Park East. This film has made it rounds this summer, but this might be the last time you’ll be able to see it on the big screen for awhile.
Whatever you decide to see today, you can’t really go wrong with these offerings. We are lucky to live in such a film friendly city.
