Toronto photographer EVA KATO has mounted her latest exhibition in the lobby of the Projection Booth Cinema, 1035 Gerrard Street East. It’s about the vitality of Tattoo as an evolving art form.
When practitioners of human paintjobs from all over the world descended on TORONTO’s Hilton Hotel in 2008, MS. KATO was on hand with her camera and a big smile. The tattoo-ed posed, the camera clicked, and the results are on the lobby wall – until September 15.
TORONTO is unique in North America when it comes to neighbourhood cinemas. We have more than any other city, including New York and Los Angeles. A 102-year-old eastend theatre – the Projection Booth – was rescued from oblivion in 2011 by Studio Film Group. Originally opened in 1910 as The Bonita, this little cinema has been home to silent films, black and white talkies, glorious technicolor features, Greek, Chinese, Bollywood and Tamil fare.
The Projection Booth is “fiercely indie”. It has recently linked itself with TRIBECA FILMS, becoming the exclusive TORONTO screen for movie titles from NEW YORK’s Tribeca Film Festival distribution company. Reciprocally, Tribeca Films has introduced several Canadian films into the US market.
