At least once a week, I run across an event that reminds me that cinephiles are spoiled rotten these days. Just off the top of my head, I know that The Royal Cinema is hosting a 40th-anniversary screening of Andrei Tarkovsky’s Stalker tomorrow night. And Hot Docs, one of the world’s best film festivals, kicks off in downtown Toronto in a few more weeks. As if those juicy items aren’t enough to keep moviegoers occupied, Toronto’s Cinesphere announced their April film lineup, and it looks like pure cinematic bliss.
Since its 2017 reopening, the Cinesphere has become one of Toronto’s most exciting movie venues. The Cinesphere features a new screen, a new state of the art sound system, and two bad-ass projection rigs: one for IMAX 70mm film prints and another for IMAX Laser presentations. And they blast pristine images onto a six-story screen.
The Cinesphere is currently offering a great spring lineup packed with modern classics. And the cherry on top of this sweet cinematic treat? An afternoon marathon screening of Christopher Nolan’s entire Dark Knight trilogy. You best believe the That Shelf staff already have their tickets booked for that screening.
Check out the Cinesphere’s April line-up below:
The Cinesphere is super-powered this April, bringing larger than life characters to the big screen. On April 20, the Cinesphere will be showing the highly anticipated and exclusive Dark Knight Trilogy. Tickets are selling fast and can be purchased here. In addition, the Cinesphere will be showing Wonder Woman: An IMAX 3D Experience, Gravity: An IMAX 3D Experience, The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers (Extended Version), Goodfellas and bringing back the Oscar Winning and edge of your seat documentary Free Solo: The IMAX Experience.
