TORONTO INT’L FILM FESTIVAL REOPENS CINESPHERE , THE WORLD’S FIRST IMAX CINEMA

TIFF is re-opening the doors to CINESPHERE in celebration of Canada’s 150th birthday, for screenings of Canadian films from the 1980’s and 90’s.

The lineup, as part of the 2017 Cinematheque program, includes free showings and digitally-restored features like Clement Virgo’s Rude (95), the first Canadian dramatic feature to be written, directed and produced by an all-black team, along with Patricia Rozema’s winner of the Cannes Prix de la jeunesse ‘I’ve Heard the Mermaids Singing’ (87). ‘North Of Superior‘, a classic IMAX documentary, is also on the program.

CINESPHERE opened in 1971 as one of the world’s most advanced theatres. Seating 752, it was the first permanent IMAX theatre anywhere.

The Toronto International Film Festival runs from September 7-17/2017
