WHAT'S HAPPENING WEDNESDAYS

BY: JENNIFER MAXWELL

It's Fall Reading Week! Hello and welcome to Wednesday everyone. At this point of the week most of us are in denial about homework and are looking for some happenings in the city. Here's two ideas of what you can do in the next seven days. Cheers!

I. STANLEY KUBRICK: THE EXHIBITION
Date: On now until January 25th
Where: tiff. Bell Lightbox, 350 King Street W.
What: Drawing on extensive archives from Kubrick's home and workplace, the exhibition features rare photographs and letters, original props and costumes, screenplays, production materials, and cameras from his nearly 50-year career. A complementary series of Roundtables and Talks brings together some of Kubrick's key collaborators, members of the Kubrick family, and local and international film critics and scholars to discuss the influential auteur's immense contributions to cinema and culture. Note: Guided tours are available as well as film/exhibition combos!

II. REMEMBRANCE DAY @ FORT YORK
Date: November 11th
When: Commencing at 10:45 am
Where: Fort York National Historic Site, 100 Garrison Road
What: Fort York National Historic Site and the Toronto Municipal Chapter IODE (Imperial Order Daughters of the Empire) are proud to present one of this City's most evocative Remembrance Day Services at the Strachan Avenue Military Cemetery on Garrison Common. Commencing at 10:45 am from the west gate of Fort York, a processional, led by period uniformed military staff and standard bearers of the IODE, will make their way to the adjacent Strachan Avenue Military Cemetery, where the public will be gathered. There, at the eleventh hour, all soldiers of the Toronto Garrison who fell in the War of 1812; The Rebellion Crises; The Crimean War; Northwest Rebellion; South African (Boer) War; the two World Wars and recent conflicts around the globe will be remembered and honoured.
