Radar: Red vs. Blue Season 9 Sneak Preview, The Devil and Billy Markham, Elvis Monday, From Page to Screen, The Panel Show

FILM | Red vs Blue Season 9 Sneak Preview with cast Q & A and Halo gaming!
The Toronto Underground Cinema is the place to be tonight for fans of the web and DVD-based series Red vs. Blue. This futuristic tale of civil war has a distinct look and feel, due to its use of machinima: 3D graphics engines, most often used in video games, but used here in film production. Tonight the cast of the series will present a preview of Season 9, followed by a Q & A. Afterwards the cast will engage the audience in some Xbox gaming on the theatre's 30 foot screen! Sweet!
Toronto Underground Cinema (186 Spadina Avenue) 7PM $8

FILM | From Page to Screen Film Festival
Tonight is the final evening in the Toronto Film Society's "From Page To Screen Series". This has been an excellent run of double-bills, featuring films from Hollywood's Golden Age, adapted from literary works. This last edition has a supernatural theme! Our first feature, "I Married a Witch", from the novel "The Passionate Witch," by Thorne Smith, is a romantic-comedy, and also a tale of revenge, politics, and marriage. It stars the lovely Veronica Lake, and Fredric Marsh. The second feature is "The Man Who Could Work Miracles," based on a comic H.G. Wells story of George Fotheringay, a man given supernatural powers by some angels, and the effect this has on his community, and eventually the world at large. Tonight's guest speaker is Cam Tolton.
Carlton Cinema (20 Carlton Street) 7:30PM $15

FUNDRAISER | The Devil and Billy Markham
"The Devil And Billy Markham" goes down tonight... on Markham! The Chaos Theory Theatre Company plans to take their production of this piece to the Vancouver Fringe Festival next month, and this is a fundraiser to help them do just that. This tale of losing one's soul to the Devil, and a crazy battle of wits that ensues, will be given "one boozy run" tonight at The Central. Come out and show your support, and enjoy what promises to be a hellishly good time.
The Central (603 Markham Street) 8PM pwyc

MUSIC | Elvis Monday
There aren't many music nights in the city with a "walk in crowd". Many are packed, but the audience is there because they dig one of the bands, or are family/friends of one of the bands, etc... Nothing wrong with that! But Elvis Monday stands apart. It's got cred, and a long history going back over twenty years, and many venues. People show up - on a Monday night no less - often not even knowing who is going to play! This showcase's track record of hosting early, super green gigs by the likes of local rock gurus like By Divine Right, Billy Talent, Peaches, Sum 41, and even Beck, is enough to give confidence to anyone seeking out a dose of rock that this is the place to go. The bonus is that there's never a cover! Kind of hard to beat, wouldn't you say?
The Drake Hotel (1150 Queen Street West) 9PM FREE
