Most women are familiar with conversations about how to avoid, deal with, and recover from violence at the hands of men. Isn’t it time we started including the other half in these discussions? Guy Talk does just that, by providing a venue for men and boys to talk about, learn about, and end violence against women. The featured panel of young male activists includes Jeff Perera of White Ribbon, WomenatthecentrE’s Courtwatch delegate Adam Helfand-Green, and many more.

CineMacabre: Discopath

  • The Royal Cinema (608 College Street)
  • 9:30 p.m.

Often regarded as a meaningless and irritating genre, disco inspires yet more negative sentiment in this month’s Rue Morgue CineMacabre screening. Discopath takes place in 1970s New York, where an unassuming man murders his date at nightclub. Escaping to Montreal, he takes cover at a girl’s school, which proves to be a poor choice as the sounds of disco provoke him into another homicidal rampage. Specially created concession treats and alcoholic drinks catering to the morbid tastes of horror fans will be available for consumption during the film. And prizes! Lots of prizes!
