Darkness is descending upon the Royal, as its worshippers gather for World Goth Night. Hosted by Toronto’s goth queen, Liisa Ladouceur, the evening will include only the most sinister of activities—like eating popcorn and watching The Craft, The Hunger, and The Lady Panorama. Everyone is welcome, whether you rock the black lipstick, consider yourself a “reformed goth,” or just appreciate the darker side of life.
