Be Still My Hartt

In November, it seemed all but certain that Reg Hartt’s Cineforum would be shut down in the new year, a result of Hartt’s impending eviction from the house on Bathurst Street that he’d hosted Cineforum out of for some eighteen years. But, as with most things Reg Hartt, there’s more to the story: according to a great feature in today’s Varsity, Hartt recently told the student paper “with considerable enthusiasm that his landlord had changed his mind about selling the house, and that the venue would be safe from sale for the foreseeable future.” Which is good news, especially if you like eccentric and relentlessly self-promoting anti-establishment film savants who screen weird movies in their living rooms.
