Another weekend of beautiful weather here in Toronto has ended, so hopefully you used that time to rest up before another week of cinema (and work) begins today. Monday includes the last programme of Another British Invasion, a Kubrick essential and more. Here’s what’s happening today on the scene for Monday, August 27, 2012.
At TIFF Bell Lightbox, you can see the continued run of four films: First Position, Compliance, Beasts of the Southern Wild and Ai Weiwei: Never Sorry. Each film has two showings, so check their schedule to find the time best for you.
Screenings at Bloor Hot Docs Cinema consist of Hell and Back, nominated for the 2012 Academy Award for Best Documentary, at 6:30 pm and Stanley Kubrick’s Vietnam War masterpiece Full Metal Jacket at 9:00 pm.
There are three options to see Beasts of the Southern Wild Monday evening, depending on what location is best for you. The film plays at 6:45 pm at TIFF Bell Lightbox, and then at 7:00 pm at both the Fox Theatre and The Revue Cinema. Magic Mike, starring Channing Tatum as a male stripper, plays at the Revue at 9:00 pm. Marc Webb’s version of the Spiderman origin story, The Amazing Spider-Man, plays at the Revue at 9:00 pm.
The Projection Booth East features a docket of three films on Monday. Starting off the day at noon is Moloch Tropical, which is about the fall of a fictional dictator. Snap, an Irish drama that premiered at the cinema last Friday, plays at 2:00 pm and 9:30 pm. Blue Like Jazz, based on the book of the same name, screens at 3:00 pm.
The Toronto Film Society has another entry in their Another British Invasion programme. In fact, it’s the last of the programe — so head over to the Carlton Cinema before it’s too late. This week’s double bill has two classics from 1950: The Blue Lamp, which features Bernard Lee (the first M in the James Bond series!), and Tiger Bay. The screenings begin at 7:30 pm.
That’s whats on the scene today. Check back tomorrow to plan your Tuesday!
