WHERE: The Bloor Hot Docs Cinema

WHEN: Wednesday, March 14

WHAT: The newly renovated Bloor Hot Docs Cinema held its grand reopening Wednesday night. A crowd of over 600 gathered to inspect changes made by the venue’s new owner, the Blue Ice Group, and to watch Big Boys Gone Bananas, a documentary about a documentarian who runs afoul of the Dole corporation. The night was the official start of the Bloor’s new life as a year-round home for Hot Docs, the annual documentary film festival. Today is the cinema’s first day of regular screenings.
