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 film: TIFF’s opening-night gala screening of Creation, a period drama about the tragedies and triumphs of Charles Darwin.
The venue: The massive upside-down glass bowl of Roy Thomson Hall, home to the Toronto Symphony Orchestra and located in the heart of the entertainment district.
So what to do while your friend holds your place in line?
