Thursday is named for Thor, the Norse god of thunder. How this relates to movies in Toronto, I don’t know. But I – and I’m guess most of you – am pretty much out of good ideas by Thursday and the official countdown to the weekend has started. Going to a movie on Thursday is as good away to pass the time ’til the weekend as any I can think of! Here’s what happening today on the scene in Toronto.
According to the tiff.net, there are no films scheduled at the TIFF Bell Lightbox today . Personally, I find this odd. So either it’s nothing or Keep the Lights On, Samsara, and Dial M for Murder, and Diana Vreeland: The Eye Has to Travel.
The Revue Theatre is screening the classic Frank Capra screwball comedy It Happened One Night at 7:00 pm and and the Dude will abide in The Big Lebowski at 9:15 pm.
The Fox Theatre will be closed to the public on Thursday for a private rental. Oooh la la.
Projection Booth East hosts the wonderful Beauty is Embarrassing starts at 3:00 pm and 5:0o pm. Then at 8:00 we’ve got the lastest Black Museum installment with Terror Frame by Frame: Stop Motion Animation on Film.
