What’s to do this weekend? You know me, a bit of a cinema buff. If I look over Cinema Clock. I see lots of interesting things: Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, Kung Fu Panda 2, but more importantly, Woody Allen’s latest opus Midnight in Paris which garnered 92% on Rotten Tomatoes. Wow, that score is way up there.
I will point out some films which have been out for a couple of weeks like Thor, Fast Five, and Certified Copy and I note that you can still catch some older films like Source Code, Hanna, The Lincoln Lawyer, and The Adjustment Bureau.
History: June 2, 2006: the Toronto 18
The 2006 Toronto terrorism case refers to a series of June 2, 2006, counter-terrorism raids in the Greater Toronto Area that resulted in the arrest of 18 people (dubbed the “Toronto 18”) alleged to be members of an Islamic terrorist cell plotting a series of attacks against targets in Ontario, Canada.

Luminato: June 10-19, 2011
I’ll be writing about this separately in the coming days, but here’s a reminder. This year marks the fifth time Luminato, Toronto’s festival of arts and creativity, will be taking over stages, streets, and public spaces in an annual multi-disciplinary celebration of theatre, dance, music, literature, food, visual arts, fashion, film, magic and more. More than 150 concerts, performances and events are being put on with most of them free.
Gay Pride Month
This month the festivities are on with the grande finale, the Gay Pride Parade, happening on Sunday, July 3. (see June is Takei Pride Month)
Winnipeg was the scene of the first of a series of rotating strikes: 24 hours of picketing. Apparently the two sides are talking, but who’s going to blink first? At least rotating isn’t as bad as a national strike, I guess.
Anderson Cooper of CNN fame turns 44.
