During the many exciting Pan Am Games celebrations, we had the honor to present Blind Spot; Moments Unseen for a special event screening in Caledon, for the Horse Experience 2015.
It was a dark and stormy Sunday night, complete with city-wide power outages and crackling skies.
A perfect occasion to huddle indoors around a movie screen with a lapful of popcorn, a glass of wine…and an enthusiastic audience of friends, family and local cinephiles.
The exclusive, one-night-only event featured an intimate concert with Whitehorse (Luke Doucet + Melissa McClelland) who wrote and performed the original soundtrack for the film.
Also, for the first time in the history of the Bloor Cinema (and a very rare occurrence anywhere), the film was projected with a closed-circuit descriptive video broadcast (via personal headphones) for the visually-impaired audience. After the show, the filmmakers participated in an open-mic Q+A, followed by an open-bar reception…
The screening was open to the public.
The house awaits…all 700 seats.
