Cineforum Closing

The Cineforum in Toronto, Canada, will be celebrating Christmas Day 2008, with a full day of Charlie Chaplin films. Christmas Day begins with a festival of Charlie Chaplin shorts, followed by: The Kid, The Gold Rush, The Circus and City Lights.

Collection of pictures of the theatre at this link.

The Cineforum has been part of the scene in Toronto since 1968, created by Reg Hartt. But it will not be part of the scene much longer, as the current theatre will be closing soon, as the home it is currently housed in is up for sale.

If you live in or near the Toronto area, and don't have big plans already for the Christmas Day holiday, certainly do visit and help say good-bye to a longtime tradition in Toronto.

There is more at this link. Also, they are selling some of their 16mm film collection. Check their schedule for other December showings.
