FILM: Parkdale MPP Cheri DiNovo is presenting a free screening of award-winning documentary Tibet: Cry of the Snow Lion tonight at The Revue Cinema. After the screening, stick around for the feel-good Q & A of the year, featuring panelists from the Tibetan Joint Action Committee. It’s party time. The Revue Cinema (400 Roncesvalles Avenue), 7 p.m., FREE.
WORDS: The popular Trampoline Hall Lecture Series happens again tonight, curated by Carl Wilson and hosted once again by Misha Glouberman. The speakers tonight are author/artist Jesse Huisken, who will be giving a talk called “The Curta Calculator: Its Construction, History and Aura”; writer Jody Rosen, whose talk is called “The Jody Grind”; and Canadian broadcaster/artist Erella Ganon, whose lecture is entitled “Friendship 202.” Once again, get there at 6:30 for rush tickets, because this lecture tends to sell out pretty quickly. Sneaky Dee’s, doors at 7:40 p.m., $5.
FILM: The Toronto Film Society’s weekly summer film noir presentation continues tonight. Tonight’s double feature includes 1939 crime drama There’s That Woman Again, and 1943 murder mystery (not to be confused with 1958’s A Night To Remember, a depiction of the Titanic disaster). Innis Town Hall (2 Sussex Avenue), 7:30 p.m., $15.
