Cineforum: Reg Hartt Talks Back
03 January 2018.

Nestled on the main floor of an old house at 463 Bathurst Street is a small theatre jammed with swivel chairs, movie paraphernalia and iconic movie set pieces. The Cineforum is owned and run by Reg Hartt and should be a 'must do" on every tourist's list. And if you're from here and haven't had the Reg Hartt experience, thebn you're in for a cinematic ride of intellectual proportions. 

Cineforum's creator and curator, Reg Hartt, \ has been amassing a collection of films that is as eclectic as they are of historical importance. Long before filmmaker Bruce La Bruce was recognized by the MoMA (honoured with a retrospective of his work) Reg was screening his LaBruce's and through discussion helped reframe their significance. Reg's commentary and talks that follow afterwards are often more compelling than the films themselves. Having gone to Rochdale College, a student-run alternative educational institution situated on the edge of the University of Toronto campus, Reg's history of screening films often speak to his astute view of the world. And this is precisely what makes a Cineforum screening so interesting, each is an exploration into how we interpret the world with Reg mixing stories from his youth with antidotes and truisms that are cause people to pause and question what they know.

2018 screenings and talks include; Metropolis, The Night They Raided Rochdale College and Other Stories, Jane Jacobs, 3D Cinema it's Origins Until Now and The Death and Life of Great Movies. For complete listings visit their website: reghartt.ca/cineforum
