The film scene in Toronto today is stacked with special events and quality screenings. Eat some fantastic food, learn more about horror films, or sit back and enjoy a quality movie. Here’s what’s happening today on the scene for Thursday September 27, 2012.
The Bloor shows Wish Me Away, a documentary on gay country musician Chely Wright at 6:45 pm. Celeste & Jesse Forever, written by and starring Rashida Jones, screens at 7:00 pm at the Fox, and is followed by Sarah Polley’s Toronto-set Take This Waltz.

Beasts of the Southern Wild, the debut film from director Benh Zeitlin, screens at 6:55 pm and 9:25 pm today at TIFF Bell Lightbox. It’s joined by TIFF 2012 favourites Laurence Anyways, Tabu and Rebelle — all which screen four times during the day.
Projection Booth East presents the debut lecture from the Black Museum, which describes itself as “a limited engagement of horror lectures and screenings.” Tonight is The Architecture of Fear: The Use of Space in Horror Cinema. The ‘instructor’ is Canadian director Vincenzo Natali (Splice). The event begins at 8:00 pm, and is $15 at the door and $12 in advance. The Black Museum lectures run every two weeks at the Projection Booth East, starting tonight. Find out more on their website.
If food is your thing more than fear, then head down to the Revue Cinema and whet your appetite for Epicure’s Revue. This month’s presentation is Like Water For Chocolate. As part of the night hosted by chef Joshna Maharaj, patrons are also treated to Mexican cuisine from local restaurants. Tickets are $10 for seniors and members, and $13 for non-members. It all starts at 6:30 pm.
As always, be sure to check our listings for more information and additional screenings. Today on the Scene is posted daily to keep you up-to-date on Toronto’s film events.
