Today on the Scene: screenings and film fun for Monday, October 29, 2012

George Hamilton and Susan Saint James in Love at First Bite

It’s apparently going to be a week of rain and cold. Brrrrr. Time to bundle up, get a hot drink, and plant yourself in the shelter of one of Toronto’s many cinemas. They’re wind and rain proof, don’t you know. A movie is the perfect antidote to that feeling of impending doom brought on by the nearing end of daylight savings time and here’s what’s happening today on the Scene for Monday, October 29, 2012.

TIFF Bell Lightbox  continues to host   Samsara, Dial M for Murder   and  Diana Vreeland: The Eye Has to Travel with multiple screening times  throughout  the day. Also on tap, at 7:00 pm, is a special screening of Love at First Bite , Stan Dragoti’s 1979 disco era Dracula spoof starring George Hamilton (who will make an appearance at the screening).

The  Bloor Hot Docs Cinema offers up You’ve Been Trumped , a David and Goliath story  chronicling  Donald Trump’s attempt to turn Scotland into a golf course, at 6:45 pm, and the third in Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy, The Dark Knight Rises , at 9:00 pm.

The  Revue Theatre has Killer Joe at 7:00 pm and The Dark Knight Rises at 9:00 pm.

The  Fox Theatre  is screening Trouble with the Curve  at 7:00 pm and   Lawless  at 9:15 pm.

Projection Booth East  hosts the second annual Python-a-thon all week with The Life of Brian  at 4:00 and 9:00 pm and   Monty Python and the Holy Grail  at 2:30 and 7:30 pm. Projection Booth Metro also has   Beauty is Embarrassing at 9:30 pm and   Marina Abramovic: The Artist is Present  at 10:00 pm.

And to get you in the spooky Halloween mood, it’s a screening of F.W. Murnau’s 1926 silent era classic, Faust , with live musical accompaniment from composer Robert Bruce at Trinity – St. Paul’s United Church at 7:30 pm. Costumes are encouraged.
