Now that summer’s over, long weekends are fewer and farther between. But here we are, again. Phew, you made it. In between all of the turkey, go check out some movies. Here is what’s happening today on the scene for Saturday, October 6, 2012.
At the TIFF Bell Lightbox, you still have a chance to see the visually stunning Beasts of the Southern Wild. For even more eye candy, go see the documentary Samsara. There is always a lot of Hitchcock to go around at this time of year, but the stakes have been raised with a new print of Dial M for Murder in 3-D. And if you haven’t seen it yet, Queen of Versailles is continuing its run today.
Cult classics and an ode to Detroit all happen at the Bloor Hot Docs Cinema today. At 1:00 pm, check out the 1980s sci-fi comedy Innerspace. For a Detroit double bill, Requiem for Detroit (3:45 pm) and Detropia (6:30 pm and 9:15 pm) portray the ups and downs of a fascinating city. Unfortunately I’m out of town this weekend, so I need you guys to go see Death Becomes Her at 11:30 pm tonight and enjoy the hell out of it for me.
At Camera Bar, Lost in La Mancha is screening at 3:00 pm. This is a documentary about Terry Gilliam’s failed attempts to adapt Don Quixote for the screen – a cool look into the creative process.
Two films at the Royal Cinema today that you may have missed this summer. If so, you should take this chance to see Moonrise Kingdom and Compliance.
The Secret Garden was always one of my favourites as a kid so I’m happy to see it being featured today as part of Cineplex’s Family Favourites series. It begins at 11:00 am, at select Cineplex theaters. Admission is $2.50, with proceeds going to Starlight Children’s Foundation.
In the October tradition mentioned earlier (SO MUCH HITCHCOCK!), Psycho is screening at Yonge and Dundas Cineplex today at 2:00 pm, 4:30 pm, and 7:00 pm. Whenever Psycho is playing on the big screen, I always make time to go see it. And you should too. There’s really nothing else like it.
There is a lot to be thankful for over this Thanksgiving weekend. Mainly, the movies. Check back tomorrow for Sunday’s happenings on the Toronto film scene.
