Free Black History Month screenings
During Black History Month, Tuesday night is a free movie night in Scarborough.
Two spots in the area are showing films each week with a black history or African history theme.
The Malvern branch of the Toronto Public Library, on Sewells Road east of Neilson Road, is screening a film Tuesdays from 6 to 8 p.m.
Screenings are also free Tuesdays from 5 to 8 p.m. this February at AccessPoint on Danforth, a community hub on Danforth Avenue east of Victoria Park Avenue.
Film lovers headed downtown may also want to see “L.A. Rebellion: Creating a New Black Cinema”, a retrospective of 1960s and 1970s shorts at the TIFF Bell Light Box on King Street West which are part of what the Toronto International Film Festival calls “one of the most important movements in the history of American independent cinema.”
A schedule for the screenings, which run through Feb. 19, is at tiff.net
