The Lineup: Oct. 13 - 19 Add to ...

The end is nigh. The annual environmentally themed film festival closes with Chasing Ice, a perilous, sweeping documentary on melting polar ice caps based on the time-lapse photography National Geographic’s James Balog (who will be in attendance at the gala closing presentation, Oct. 14, 7 p.m., $22). To Oct. 14. $5 to $22, TIFF Bell Lightbox, 350 King St. W., 416-599-8433.

 

Singin’ in the Rain

After this crazily upbeat musical was released in 1952, the Boggs Act was passed, which increased punishment and established mandatory substances for

possession of controlled

substances such as marijuana.

We’re not saying Gene Kelly was all buzzed up or anything, but the “glorious feeling” and the

“laughing at clouds” business is suspicious. Oct. 17 and 18, 7 p.m. Fox Theatre, 2236 Queen St. E., 416-691-7330.

I On the Sky

Acrobatics, storytelling and colourful visuals are part of what Montreal’s Dynamo Theatre calls its “enormously theatrical

production,” involving a woman disoriented by a storm who tries to find out where she is and how she got there. Could a young

runaway hold the answers? To Oct. 21. $10 to $20. Young People’s Theatre, 165 Front St. E., 416-862-2222.

Mirabilia: A Miracle on Gladstone Avenue

It’s Canada’s only Byzantine-styled Anglican church, we’ve been informed, and the only church with religious art by members of the Group of Seven. St. Anne's celebrates its 150th anniversary with music, lectures, film, storytelling, and, perhaps, a little boasting. To Oct. 21. 270 Gladstone Ave., 416-536-3160 or stannes.on.ca.
