Happy weekend! Winter has finally arrived, so bundle up until you get inside a theater. Here is what’s happening today on the Scene for Saturday, January 19, 2013.
A diverse group of flicks screen today at the TIFF Bell Lightbox. Both hot from TIFF 2012, On the Road opens this weekend, and The Master continues its run in 70 mm. I saw it last weekend, and if any of you can figure out what it’s about, please let me know. Oscar hopeful, Amour, also continues its run with showtimes throughout the day. Last of the run of engagement movies are Barbara and Mekong Hotel . Your chances to see Bond on the big screen are numbered, so check out Goldfinger at 12:00 pm. At 4:30 pm, see Emmanuelle Riva in KapÃ². At 7:30 pm, as part of the Frozen Inferno: The Films of Russian Master Alexei Guerman series, My Friend Ivan Lapshin screens. At 10:00 pm, check out a Japanese gangster classic, Massacre Gun. With a title like that, you can’t really go wrong.
