As I was leaving tonights film, I checked my email, to find that the listings for next week’s shows are out. Only one of the films is getting changed over, and I’m not sure if it’s from bad to worse or from worse to merely bad.
YOGI BEAR is leaving, and it’s being replaced with LITTLE FOCKERS.
This means that from Friday, I have my pick of these films if I want to watch something I haven’t seen yet;
- LITTLE FOCKERS
- THE TOURIST
- YOU WILL MEET A TALL DARK STRANGER
- THE CHRONICLES OF NARNIA: THE VOYAGE OF THE DAWN TREADER
- CLIENT 9: THE RISE AND FALL OF ELIOT SPITZER
- LOVE & OTHER DRUGS
You’ll notice that’s 7 films I haven’t seen, a couple of which I’m not interested in seeing at all. I have the seven days next week, plus tomorrow and thursday to work on these films. Nine days, and not nearly enough films that I’m interested in. I can finish off the week with a couple of those, but I’m going to have to widen my scope, and include a couple other theatres as fallbacks.
There’s another Magic Lantern theatre between us and the lake, so I may have to fall back on it, and if things get tight, I will go watch something at the TIFF Bell Lightbox. The Lightbox does have CHINATOWN and APOCALYPSE NOW: REDUX this weekend, and ENTER THE VOID and LA COMMARE SECCA next week… along with some potentially interesting Chaplin films like GOLD RUSH and MONSIEUR VERDOUX.
Tonight, I saw one film;
FAIR GAME (Carlton) – dramatization of the story surrounding exposed CIA operative Valerie Plame. Really good, and Sean Penn doesn’t ham it up too badly.
