They'll have a number of film screenings in their five theatres, including several by Tim Burton. They'll offer their ongoing exhibitions on Tim Burton and Mary Pickford. Additionally, they'll have some special events, music and workshops just for the occasion.
Lightbox is a very impressive facility that offers a variety of new ways to experience cinema. They also have terrific year-round programming, visiting filmmakers and artists, and an educational component. Roger Ebert praised the new building with writings and tweets such as "TIFF's wonderful new Bell Lightbox is one swell place to see a movie."
