We don’t know what exactly spawned their big decision, but the big guys at the Toronto Cyclists Union sat down and decided they needed some kind of fundraiser. Bike-a-thon? Nope. Bikini car wash? Nope. Star-studded screening of Pee-wee’s Big Adventure? Why not?!
Love it or hate it, your childhood favourite (or most hated) flick will be showing at the Bloor Cinema, with homegrown indie darlings performing—Kevin Drew and Joel Gibb will be playing alongside members of Apostle of Hustle and Republic of Safety, just to name a few. Lex Vaughn will be starring as Pee-wee him/herself, accompanied by her Shortbus co-star Sook-Yin Lee.
Originally, PeeWee and all his pals were set for one show Thursday night, but with the unexpected event popularity, a second show has been added to double the proceeds. That means double the Pee-wee pleasure!
The tapes start rolling at 7, with the encore performance at 9:30 p.m. Tickets go for fourteen bucks at the eight locations listed here.
