Surprise! Toronto's Neon Dreams Cinema Club is bringing you an encore presentation of STREETS OF FIRE, courtesy of programmer/Spectacular Optical EIC Kier-La Janisse’s private 35mm print. As it turns out Kier-La’s mint condition print that The Royal Cinema has been keeping safe for the past year is being deposited to the American Genre Film Archive in Austin, TX. But before we say goodbye, we want to give it one more hoorah on the big screen.
So dust off your rubber overalls and get ready to fistpump the night away. Walter Hill’s film that combines “all of the things that I thought were great then and which I still have great affection for: custom cars, kissing in the rain, neon, trains in the night, high-speed pursuit, rumbles, rock stars, motorcycles, jokes in tough situations, leather jackets and questions of honor" is coming back to The Royal Cinema for one final night. Dancing in the aisles will be encouraged.

It’s the return of the Saturday Morning All-You-Can-Eat Cereal Cartoon Party, with an ALL NEW show curated by film programmer, writer and pop culture connoisseur Kier-La Janisse! As always, this 3-hour trip into the weird and wonderful world of yesteryear’s
animated antics will be accompanied by an all-you-can eat buffet of sugar cereal that is open throughout the show (and yes, there will be non-dairy options too!). The cartoon lineup is always a mystery, but you’ll see both faves and obscurities spanning the 40s through the 80s, all punctuated with vintage commercials and PSAs! So get ready for a sugar rush and an explosion of nostalgia all wrapped up in one candy-coated package.
Curated by Kier-La Janisse.
Feel free to wander in a bit late if you sleep in! Blankets, slippers and pajamas are encouraged!
