Revisiting Old Hollywood Icons

I have been spending a lot of time at the TIFF Bell Lightbox in the recent months.  It is a true gem in the city and offers an awesome array of unique events and programs centered around film and the appreciation film.  Visiting the TIFF Bell Lightbox will not be your typical movie going experience!

If you happen to be in the city this weekend and are looking for something new to do, visit the “Grace Kelly:  From Movie Star to Princess an Exhibition”  to see personal memorabilia from an old Hollywood style icon.  An American Actress in the 1950’s, Grace Kelly later became the Princess of Monaco after marrying Rainier III, Prince of Monaco.  Take a step back into time and walk in her shoes – read personal letters to Grace from classical film legends such as Alfred Hitchcock and Bing Crosby, view film footage from her wedding, meeting with the Kennedy’s and trip to Canada.  Also on display are many of her famous dresses from momentous events in her life (including her wedding dress and the dress she wore when winning the Oscar for Best Actress in 1955 for The Country Girl).  Note photography is not permitted.

If you want to see it, you have got to hurry!  The exhibition is only open until this Sunday, January 22nd.  New extended hours are being offered for the closing weekend:  10am-9pm from January 20-21 and 10am-8pm on January 22nd.

The TIFF Bell Lightbox is located at the corner of King & John (Toronto, ON).  Visit http://www.tiff.net for more information.
