How is everyone’s week going? You’re halfway there. As Dory says, “Just keep swimming!” Or as I would say, “Just go see a movie,” so here is what”s happening today on the Scene for Wednesday, October 17, 2012.
Looking to spice up your afternoon? The Bloor Hot Docs Cinema has Por El Flamenco and Flamenco From the Roots beginning at 1:00 pm. These two films are part of the Flamenco Film Lunch Break series. Tonight at 7:00 pm is the ImagineNATIVE opening night gala. The opening film, The People of the Kattawapiskak River, promises to be an eye opening and rewarding experience for audiences.
The Revue Cinema is hosting a Movies for Mommies today at 1:00 pm, featuring the crowd pleasing The Intouchables. At 6:45 pm, it is The Bourne Legacy and at 9:15 pm, it is The Intouchables again, sans babies.
On the other side of town, at the Fox Theatre, you have two chances to catch the ever charming Meryl Streep in her summer sleeper hit, Hope Springs, at 1:30 pm and 9:15 pm. More excitingly, though (and that’s saying a lot because everyone knows how much I love Meryl), Singin’ in the Rain will be gracing the big screen at 7:00 pm.
Two of my favourite recent films are still holding their reign at the Royal Cinema tonight. At 7:00 pm, go see Moonrise Kingdom. Unless you hate all things awesome, that is. And at 9:15 pm, you can see the super fun For a Good Time, Call…
For an old film in a new theatre experience, head to Yonge and Dundas Cineplex. The 1987 Brian De Palma film The Untouchables is playing at 2:00 pm, 4:30 pm, and 7:10 pm. Alternatively, the Led Zeppelin rock documentary The Song Remains the Same plays tonight at 9:40 pm.
So, what do we do? We swim, swim, swim! Friday is just around the corner. In the meantime, you can check back tomorrow for Thursday’s happenings on the Toronto film scene.
