The film festival may be over, but the action at TIFF’s new home, the Bell Lightbox, has just started. This Thursday and Friday, Toronto’s movie buffs get a two-for-one deal: meet legendary Canadian filmmaker David Cronenberg and see inside the ‘box.

Cronenberg will introduce his film Videodrome both days as a kickoff to the Lightbox’s regular public programming. (Tickets are $18.75 at tiff.net.) The building has already been well received by film nerds. On his blog, Roger Ebert, who was in town for the festival, commented, “The Bell Lightbox is superb. No other word for it.”
