ART | Electromagnetism V2
An illuminating exhibition, Electromagnetism V2 shows us that creativity has no bounds. Featuring unique artwork from the city's best creative minds in the advertising world, it is an opportunity to see how talent manifests when the creative directors of companies such as BBDO, MacLaren McCann and CBC Television take the reigns and create art for art's sake. After great success the first time around, Electromagnetism V2 is sure to open your eyes and perhaps what you see may inspire the inner artiste in you.

FILM | Canada's Top 10
We've got a lot to celebrate in Canada, not to mention unbridled talent, as big an order as you consume. Frequently an underdog on the world stage, our country's film industry deserves its special moment in the limelight. And who better to make this happen than the TIFF Bell Lightbox? Starting tonight, experience the best in Canadian feature and short films of 2010 including Splice, Trigger and Incendies. Many directors will be in attendance and 10-part package deals are available.

ART | Come Up To My Room Retrospective Show Opening
For an astounding seven years, Come Up To My Room, a exhibit pairing photography and tangible objects, has called the Gladstone Hotel home. Tonight this milestone will be celebrated and CUTMR wants you to be a part of it. Come see the best that was, over the past seven years, both in the flesh and on screen.

MUSIC | Tin Star Orphans w/ Rival Boys + Papermaps
Tin Star Orphans are an alt-rock country band from our very own Toronto. You may have heard of them from their success of the track "Let You Down" and in 2010 the released their latest album The Days of Blinding Fear. Riding on their tails of their achievements, they are playing an intimate show at the music scene's staple El Mocambo (El Mo for the regulars) and will be supported by Papermaps and Rival Boys. Come see what all the fuss is about.
El Mocambo (464 Spadina Avenue), 8pm $6

FILM | January Cinemacabre: Holocaust 2000
Rue Morgue magazine is presenting Cinemacabre, happening every third Thursday of the month and featuring the best in "new, classic and cult horror films." The very first one of the series is Holocaust 2000, shown on 35mm of course, it is a horrific icon of the 1970s, starring a young Kirk Douglas. The plot centres around his suspicion that his son is the Anti-Christ and trying to bring on doomsday, and it only gets darker from there.
The Bloor Cinema (506 Bloor Street West), 9:30pm $40 for Cinemacabre Ticket Pack
