Upcoming : Wexford Plaza, Dim the Fluorescents and Nirvanna Pop Up Shop !

With the end of the year fast approaching, I want to highlight the theatrical releases of a couple much anticipated Toronto films and special events. Joyce Wong’s Wexford Plaza tells the story of an awkward young woman who is a security guard at a Scarborough strip mall as she tries to manage her complicated life. It’s an intimate, sensitive, awkward and funny story as the film surprisingly shifts to a second perspective in its second half, which poignantly reveals the complexity of truths, emotions and relationships. Wexford Plaza opens tonight at the Carlton cinema and will play for a week. Next up is Daniel Warth’s Dim the Fluorescents also opening at the Carlton December 8th to the 14th. I haven’t seen it yet, but the Globe included it in its list of the films that could be the ‘saviours of the season.’ Quite the honour! And finally, some good news for fans for Nirvanna The Band, the rumours seem to be true that they’ll open a pop up shop set up next Friday December 8th through to the 10th at Show Gallery (978 Queen Street West). The hours for its run are Friday (4-9PM), Saturday (1-10PM) and Sunday (1-6PM). We’re excited to see what kind of merch they come up, and I’m sure they’ll make for excellent gifts for the holidays. And with the news that the Born Ruffians will have five nights of performances at Lee’s Palace in February for their forthcoming LP Uncle, Duke and the Chief, with special appearances by Brave Shores and Matt and Jay from NTB, there’s finally some nice things to look forward to!
