Free screenings today and tomorrow at the newly reno’d Carlton Cinemas
Indie cinephiles can line up at the Carlton Cinema again, enjoying a $1.5 million renovation and free screenings to boot. The charming film house shut its doors last December to the bitter disappointment of those who frequented the theatre for off-beat and critically acclaimed movies and a retro experience. Atom Egoyan, who tried to save the Carlton last year, will be at the theatre tonight to answer questions after the free 6:20 p.m. screening of his Toronto-filmed Chloe, a fitting start to the 29-year-old landmark’s next chapter. Today and tomorrow, Carlton Cinema will be showing free screenings of various films, including The Blind Side, Departures, Julie and Julia, The Class, The Cove, Crazy Heart, Up in the Air, Fantastic Mr. Fox, Away From Her and How to Train Your Dragon.
