It’s time for NOW’s Free Flick Mondays at The Royal, and this month’s pick is an American Thanksgiving miracle: John Hughes’ Planes, Trains & Automobiles, the one where Steve Martin and John Candy make their way from New York to Chicago for the holiday weekend, and hell follows with them.
Doors open at 6:30 pm; the show starts at 7:30 pm with a brief introduction by yours truly. The first hundred guests get free popcorn; everybody gets a free movie.
And here’s a fun fact: This is the first time we’ve screened a title for which I have already released an episode of Someone Else’s Movie, so please download and enjoy Corey Mintz’ episode before the show! If you do this I will thank you from the stage. That’s a promise.
Oh, also, read this thing I wrote for NOW about the new 4DX auditorium they installed at Cineplex’s Yonge-Dundas megaplex. And here’s a thing about the EKRAN film festival starting up tonight at the Revue, because I have a good heart even though they’re technically my competition. Man’s gotta have a code.
