TIFF Bell Lightbox continues to host Samsara, Dial M for Murder and Diana Vreeland: The Eye Has to Travel with multiple screenings throughout the day. Then, the special Living Dread series with the master zombie director George A. Romero continues, with screenings of Martin at 6:30 pm and The Crazies at 9:00 pm. Romero will be on hand to introduce Martin.
The Bloor Hot Docs Cinema presents a special screening of the award-winning Life in Stills at 7:00 pm and You’ve Been Trumped at 9:30 pm.
The Fox Theatre has the delightful animated adaptation of Roald Dahl’s The Fantastic Mr. Fox at 7:00 pm and brings back Terrence Mallick’s 1978 film Days of Heaven, starring Richard Gere and Sam Shepard.
