The Wright Stuff: Toronto

A little under a week from now we’ll be kicking off The Wright Stuff: Toronto at The Bloor with a double-bill of Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz introduced by yours truly.

Check out the full list on the sidebar, to the right, and find more here.

Here’s what they’re saying;

Following its successful Kevin Smith Fest, the Bloor Cinema is proud to announce that filmmaker Edgar Wright (director/co-writer, Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz) will be presenting a selection of his favourite movies at the Bloor every week from March 1 through April 12th.

Wright, currently in town shooting the Toronto-set Scott Pilgrim vs. the World (based on the graphic novels by Bryan Lee O’Malley), has chosen a diverse collection of movies, from kung fu classics (Stephen Chow’s Shaolin Soccer, Jackie Chan’s Drunken Master 2) to semi-forgotten musical treasures (Busby Berkeley’s Dames, The Monkees’ Head) to Torontopocalypse nightmares (David Cronenberg’s The Brood, Don McKellar’s Last Night).

The Bloor will also be showing a double bill of Wright’s own films on Saturday, February 28th, and a marathon of his TV series Spaced (originally broadcast from 1999-2001 on the UK’s Channel 4).

Wright be introducing and doing Q&As following the Feb. 28 and Mar. 1 screenings, and will attend the others, his schedule permitting.

Single movie tickets are $8 for Bloor Cinema members and $11 for non-members. (Non-member tickets include a six-month membership.)

Double bills are $14 for members and $19 for non-members.

A pass for all screenings is $90, ($75 if not including Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz). Pass-holders receive priority seating and 10% off Silver Snail products from the merchandise table set up at various screenings.

Passes are available in advance via TOtix, Silver Snail, and the Bloor Cinema box office.

      Definitely! The intros simply must be filmed and put on You Tube!
      That’s an order to anyone going – make sure it gets done.
      Or Edgar’ll work his kung fu magic on you all…

    I got my tickets first thing yesterday! as well as 4 of my friends tickets, so far. (i tried to get them last Wednesday when they were suppose to go on sale, but they some how got delayed)

    I cannot wait to see your amazing films as well as “Don’t” again on the big screen, in a packed ol’ skool cult film theatre, full of fans, in the very city you are currently filming a movie in which is based on this city. (i hope that sentence made sense…)

    May I hold my breath in hope that maybe, possibly, we may get a few Scott Pilgrim surprises?
