Lightbox tour

The new Lightbox centre has been under construction for over three years. Although we were able to visit the two new restaurants inside, before it's completion (O&B Canteen and Luma), Lightbox officially opened on Sunday, September 12th. We were very happy to take part in an advance tour, followed by a celebration of the film festival's 35th anniversary.

Here are some snapshots...

The new facility earned some mentions in the American press...
– and here are some highlights from local sources...
If you haven't visited Lightbox yet — see what's playing, check out free exhibits, grab a bite, or have dinner — it's the destination for cinema in the city.

See you at the next fest!

K'naan was in concert for the Lightbox opening, at King & John — here's his wrap-up performance of Wavin' Flag...
