Join us on Thursday, August 2nd for a screening of the lighthearted romantic comedy Hysteria, a live performance by Toronto’s calypso-jazz ensemble Eucalyptus, LA style Mexican food by Ese and more!
Doors open at 7:30pm, the band begins at 8:00pm and the film screens around 9:00pm.
The Film: Hysteria is a lighthearted romantic comedy from director Tanya Wexler, based on the surprising truth of how Dr. Mortimer Granville came up with the world’s first electro-mechanical vibrator. Academy Award nominee Maggie Gyllenhaal (Crazy Heart, Nanny McPhee Returns) and Hugh Dancy (Adam, Confessions of a Shopaholic) lead an accomplished cast in this untold tale of Victorian discovery, as a young doctor’s quest to work out the key to women’s happiness leads him to his own. This witty, winning comedy not only reveals how the vibrator became one of the first electrical appliances in history to earn a patent, but also, how it sent sparks flying between a cautious man and a liberated woman brought together by the wonders of friction.
The film will be preceded by a live performance by Eucalyptus. More info about the band here.
Ese will be on site serving LA style Mexican food and Amsterdam brewery will be serving beer and wine all night long.
Plus we’ll have chocolate, candy, and popcorn, ’cause you can’t have a movie without some good ol’ popped corn, right?
