TIFF Bell Lightbox provides a home for all of TIFF's existing programmes as well as new initiatives, community and industry events.
Good second floor space for renting out for large meetings plus theatre for presentations.
Free wifi to check movie descriptions inside
Great venue. Quality projections.
THE movie theater.
Movies, special events
yes it's overrated and overpriced but its the only place of its kind and a definite must for anyone with filmic and/or cultural tendencies
Great lunch menu in the Canteen. Wifi too. The Sweet Potato Fries from the Appetizer Menu are amazing!
Film and popcorn
I am Dale Vander Woude. I have visited TIFF many times. I don't think that it is a bad place to go. I enjoyed there with my friends.
Amazing events here
Home of the Toronto Film Festival. A warren of escalators and screening rooms.
Their film series showcases are always great, like that time they showed a bunch of Nicholas Cage films
fantastic place 2 c films from around the world, classics, filmmaker talks & cinema history exhibits.During TIFF it is plentiful w/excitement & screenings, clearly toronto's entertainment hub!
Toronto international film festival
Love the sound proof theatres.
Not anything special!
There's a phone charging station on the 2nd floor near the concession stand
Fancy place to see movies before hit the cinemas , save some cash by buying in groups or combos
They don't serve fountain drinks (bottles only), and only have pepsi products. So you might want to sneak in a bottle/can of Coca-Cola if that's your style.
State-of-the-art building. Great movie screenings all year long, regardless of the TIFF.
You can't really beat Sunday brunch on the patio after church, followed up by a matinee.
Theater 1 seats are the best...
This place takes a "movie date" to a whole new level. Cute location & building, and the Kijiji cafe adds a little pizzazz!
Best popcorn in TO
The upstairs bar is good for people-watching over king street with a cocktail.
Spirited Away: The Films of Studio Ghibli on now (Dec 17/2013 to Jan 3/2014)!
Best theatre in Toronto. This movie is going to rock. I number number.

A fresh new venue that is perfect when you need a theatre and party space. From the lobbies to the malaparte they are all fresh and new
Take a free 45-minute guided tour of TIFF Bell Lightbox. Every Sat & Sun at 11am & 1pm. Meet next to the elevators on the main floor. First come, first served.
Get cultured!! ;D
Films as they're meant to be seen. From Chinatown to Melancholia, each print I've seen has been crisp and bright. No hair/scratches; pristine sound. Film is an art form, and Lightbox is its gallery.
Check out the display of artifacts from the archaeological excavation of the first Toronto General Hospital. It's on the 4th floor in the lobby of the Film Library.
There are two unmarked washrooms hidden behind the escalators on the main floor. Handy if the ones upstairs are busy.
Have a glass of wine after the movie in the lounge while overlooking King St. W.
Try the Reincarnated at LUMA.
Stop by Luma on the second floor for a great place to grab a drink or a snack after a movie. Excellent atmosphere and food, and quieter than the ground floor.
