Central & Remote: June 29th – July 1st

 A round up of the best/weirdest things to do this weekend in Toronto…

 

Friday June 29th

ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW | Toronto Underground Cinema

Rocky Horror and it’s not even Halloween? This screening is part of Pride also known as  “Gay Christmas” and promises to be even more over the top than usual. It also marks the last event to be held at the TUC before it closes for the entire month of July. The cinema has been going strong for over two years but it has come to time to make much-needed repairs and upgrades to a space that was neglected for a long time.

Upgrades will be made to ensure the cinema can continue to play 35mm films and keep current with a digital setup allowing for a more consistent program. TUC also promises to add a “new element to their business structure that requires some work to be done to our service areas”. It’s hush-hush as to what exactly that means so we’ll all have to wait until the reopening in August.

Friday at 11:45PM, 186 Spadina

About Yuli Scheidt

Yuli was born at the exact moment in 1986 when the Challenger Space Shuttle exploded and rained down on the ocean. As a child she believed this meant she was destined for greatness in the realm of space travel and radioastronomy. Nothing remotely as awesome as that has happened so far. Instead Yuli, at the age of 18, relocated from Calgary to Ottawa where she studied photography, life sciences and graphic design before moving to Toronto. [More by Yuli]
