Toronto is one of the greatest cities in the world when it comes to crafting and appreciating film. Last time we checked Toronto had close to 70 film festivals each year, the diversity of the festivals mirroring the multicultural heart of the city. While attending festivals is a joy for many, including the staff at Entertainment Maven, it can be very taxing both mentally and physically to adhere to a hectic festival schedule. For this reason we think it’s often best to pick a few of your favourite festivals to attend throughout the year, and then rely on Toronto’s wonderful movie theatre scene to fill in gaps between festivals.
Below is a list theatres and events in Toronto that go beyond the latest Hollywood releases. These theatres will show older classics, and new release independent or foreign films, many of which are hidden gems that your average moviegoer may be completely oblivious to.
