Why does summer fly by so fast? While winter seems to last forever. This is the unofficial last week of summer and the last long weekend until Thanksgiving. How will you spend it? Getting your kids ready for back to school? Closing up the cottage and saying good-bye to friends for another year? Labour day reminds me that tiff is just around the corner. This year the action kicks off on Thursday September 8th. The opening night Gala is a remake of the “The Magnificient Seven”. The original western was directed by John Sturgess in 1960. Looking forward to seeing the new version by Antoine Fuqua with a star-studded cast including Denzel Washington, Ethan Hawke and Chris Pratt. Did you know that Toronto’s International Film Festival was born at the Windsor Arms Hotel? And, we’ve been throwing some great parties here ever since. We’re also an official tiff culinary partner. Stop by for drinks or a late post-screening dinner in the Living Room. We’re open till 4:00am during tiff. You can even book our private screening room to preview your film for friends. Enjoy your unofficial last week of summer.
