Winner of the "Best Film Not Playing at a Theatre Near You" award at the Gotham Independent Film Awards, Littlerock is the story of a Japanese student who gets lost in a small desert town in California.

The Royal Cinema - a Toronto landmark - is pleased to be bringing Littlerock to our big city. Opening night is tonight and you definitely don't want to miss this one.
The Royal Cinema (608 College Street), 9:15pm $15

THEATRE | The Simian Showcase
There are few combos that rival a little good ole fashioned theatre and a cocktail or two and what better place to showcase this serendipity than at The Imperial Pub? Monkeyman Productions is presenting The Simian Showcase tonight at said locale; a series of four short plays "containing the themes of geek/fanatic/pop culture." Bring an open mind and a friend or two. The show opens tonight and will run through until April 16.
