A Serious New Home For Toronto Film Fest

Construction of a new $173 million home for the Toronto Film Festival is expected to begin next year. “Festival Centre — its official name will be determined in the next 12 months — will contain five theatres, the largest containing 548 seats, the smallest 80… as well as a soaring lobby, a library, a ticket office, an art gallery and an education centre, among other services. ‘Ours will not be a multiplex, though we thought a lot about them, what they do well and what they don’t do well’.”
