Nuit Blanche 2016
Saturday, Oct 1, 2016
Artist Jason Steidman is bringing his second edition of his projected artwork, LightSweetCrude back to the club for Nuit Blanche. This synesthesia-laden installation sees (and hears, tastes, feels), oil spill-like colours visualized in our alleyway. Watch in awe as Jason manipulates the colours to create new shapes and sounds.
Dinner will be served alongside a special show in the main dining room. Without giving too much away, we’ll tell you that you may recognize some of the images you see on screen.

Channel 416: The Trouble with Tracy
Monday, Oct 17, 2016
An early example of T.O. playing NYC in a double-header of hijinks, miniskirts, and misadventures, starring Diane Nyland and Steve Weston as a young urban married highrise couple in one of Canadian TV’s most notorious sitcoms. The trouble with THE TROUBLE WITH TRACY might have been that all 130 episodes that aired weekday afternoons in 1970-71 were taped in a marathon session at CTV's Agincourt studio, with seven shows produced every five days. Join curator Mark Selby in a fun romp into Canadian sitcom history where you’ll discuss the episodes after the screening and have the opportunity to meet a special guest.
(two episodes, 25 minutes each)
