HORROR EXPRESS BUS TOUR – TORONTO!

Classof1984-2

In Toronto on August 4th 2018, we’ll be boarding the first-ever Horror Express, a chartered bus tour of iconic horror film locations, taking place throughout the greater Toronto area. This 6-hour tour hosted by writer, musician, filmmaker and ex-Fangoria EIC Chris Alexander will stop at 15 iconic horror locations (primarily from Canada’s infamous tax shelter era) for photo ops and pass by many others as we navigate through the history of Toronto’s cinematic underbelly.

The tour will begin with a 10:30am registration in central Toronto (location to be disclosed to registrants in an email) and departure at 11am, and will run until approximately 5:00pm, including a stop for lunch along the route (cost of lunch not included). You can also bring snacks on the bus.

The tour will wind up at The Royal Cinema at 608 College, where they will be presenting a 35mm screening of Mark Lester’s Toronto-shot Class of 1984 with star Lisa Langlois in person!
