Nic Cage TIFF

Nic Cage themed free outdoor movie event during TIFF

Last year, TIFF declared September 5 Bill Murray Day. Now, you can celebrate another prolific, yet divisive, actor who rose to fame in the 1980s thanks to a free event running adjacent to the festival.

Minto Westside condos is hosting a Nicolas Cage-themed bike-in movie event on September 17 at the Westside Market on Bathurst, just north of Front. Along with screening the 1983 film Valley Girl, the Nicolas Uncaged evening will include a panel discussion led by Torontonian Lindsay Gibb -- she just finished a book titled National Treasure: Nicolas Cage.

The panel, which will include Broken Pencil Magazine editor Alison Lang and comedians Andrew Barr and Bobby Knauff, will argue whether Cage is the best, or worst, actor of our time. The debate will kick-off at 7:30 p.m. and the movie will start half an hour later.
