The Beatles in Japan
Cineplex presents its annual Digital Film Festival, showcasing fan favorites on the big screen. Today, you can catch Sam Raimi’s Darkman, Ridley Scott’s Blade Runner (The Final Cut), Warren Beatty’s Dick Tracy and family classics The Monster Squad and The Rocketeer. They’re digital prints, but I’m betting you won’t get to see The Monster Squad at the Cinémathèque anytime soon. Check out the Cineplex website for more info and showtimes.
