Today on the Scene: screenings and film fun for Sunday, October 28, 2012

Hitchock's Dial M for Murder

As the mega frankenstorm of the century churns toward the eastern part of North America, let’s pause to consider that seemingly professional, rational adults are using the term “frankenstorm” with a straight face. Then let’s try to thing of something clever to say about this frankenstorm and Halloween being only three days away, and then realize the lingering effects of Saturday night are preventing wittiness. Then let’s decide what movie to see, because really, people, it’s just some rain with a swirl of wind. Here’s what’s happening on today on the scene in Toronto.
