In case you had any doubts over the cat’s rightful domain as Internet lifeblood, TIFF Bell Lightbox is hosting its Just for Cats: Internet Cat Video Film Festival that promises to be, more or less, exactly what it sounds like. In a valiant act of interspecies peacekeeping, Deadmau5 will be in attendance for a special red-carpet adopt-a-thon hosted by the Toronto Humane Society before the 7 p.m. screening.
Looking to spice up your weekend? Of course you are. And there’s no better way to do that than with Meat Loaf and the Spice Girls. The cinematic masterpiece Spice World, which enjoys a 3.3/10 rating on IMDB, will be screened at Videofag. Make sure to bring candy and dress in a Spice Girls-related outfit, the better to party like it’s 1999.
In case you missed our interview with Dick Miller earlier this week (or loved it so much, you need more), the octogenarian character actor known for his roles in such campy classics as Little Shop of Horrors and A Bucket of Blood will be at the Carlton Cinema tonight and tomorrow to present his new documentary, That Guy Dick Miller, plus one of the aforementioned classics. He’ll also be available, with beloved wife Lainie, for a post-show Q&A.
Every Friday, Torontoist provides a not-so-scientific roundup of the best people, places and things to check out over the weekend. The result: The Big Five.
