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, 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  Bloor Hot Docs Cinema  continues to host the  Toronto After Dark Film Festival.

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.

The  Royal Cinema  is screening Living Downstream with director Chanda Chevannes in attendance at 7:00 pm followed up by  the delightful   The Ballad of Hugh  at 9:30 pm.

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.
