WHERE: First Canadian Place

WHEN: Earlier today

WHAT: The main lobby of Canada’s tallest skyscraper looks like an arcade in a 1980s shopping mall today, thanks to 100 pinball machines carted in by the Stratford Festival as a promotion for its new production of Tommy—which, of course, is a rock opera, written by members of The Who, about a “deaf, dumb, and blind kid,” who “sure plays a mean pinball.” The machines will remain until 6 p.m. today, so there’s still time to go claim your turn at the flippers. No quarters are required; the games are free.
