My Toronto Includes Cinematheque

Sometimes, cultural divides are physical as well as conceptualIt might be Thanksgiving, but I’m still beavering away at my desk, putting together a DVD column and finishing a couple of other things for this week’s paper. And this evening, as everyone’s tucking into their turkey, I’ll be down at the AGO to introduce Allan King’s last documentary, “EMPZ 4 Life“, at 9 pm.

It’s screening in Cinematheque’s “Toronto on Film” series, which kicked off over the weekend — and which I wrote about in Friday’s web column on the NOW site. It’s an interesting program, and even if you’ve seen the movies before, it might be worth your while to check them out in this new context.

I mean, come on! “Videodrome“! On a big screen and everything!
