Red carpets, nightly parties, fans’ faces obscured by continually clicking cameras—looks like the Toronto International Film Festival is back in town. Each day of the TIFF we’re not only listing our daily flick pick, but we’re mapping the hottest attractions, restaurants, and shops and services that are just steps from the screening spot.
The films: Saint Louis Blues, an unlikely musical that follows a road trip through Senegal, and 25 Carat, in which a car thief and big-time crook and struggle to escape the life of crime.
The venue: Cineplex Odeon Varsity at Manulife Centre, movie theatre where patrons aged 19 and over can receive full in-seat service during Varsity VIP film screenings.
