As  the  resident American on the TFS staff, I’ll be bowing out of movie screenings on Tuesday. Instead I’ll stay in and have a home festival of optimistic political movies (hint: they were all made by Frank Capra) . Seriously, it’s the only thing that  assuages  of the pain of election day. Presumably, most of you don’t care about this so here’s what happening today on the scene in the Toronto for Tuesday, November 6, 2012.

At the  TIFF Bell Lightbox  today you can find   Diana Vreeland: The Eye Has to Travel, Samsara,     and  Dial M For Murder , and   How to Survive a Plague . But if you’re more a classic film kinda person you can catch Funny Face with Audrey Hepburn on 6:30 pm or if you’re into Bond, James Bond don’t miss For Your Eyes Only at 9:00 pm.

You can catch   The Carbon Rush  and   The Story of Film: An  Odyssey  Episodes 11 & 12  today at the  Bloor Hot Docs Cinema.

The Royal flings open its doors after the usual Monday closing and brings us the beautiful Beasts of the Southern Wild and Manborg .

At the  Revue Cinema, you have another chance to see   Lawless   and   The Dark Knight Rises.  

East enders can hit the  Fox Theatre  for   Pitch Perfect  or   End of Watch .

Wayne White is still enjoying his run at    Projection Booth East, with   Beauty is Embarrassing   and the all new   Hamlet  is also playing. And starting at 8 pm you can hit the “Election Tea Party” starring Fox News, American beer, hotdogs, and a night of mocking the poor judgement of our neighbors to the South.

If you prefer your mocking straight up, skip the election party and head straight to Projection Booth Metro for Monty Python and the Holy Grail and Life of Brian .
