Ahhh... what used to be Yonge Street. It was the main drag. If you straightened out Times Square, you would have an idea of its importance. So many cinemas dotted the street. Now... nuthin. With the literal fall of the Uptown in 2004, the street that means so much to the identity of Toronto is devoid of any space that shows films, with the exception of some of the live theatre venues that are transformed during the Toronto International Film Festival and some multiplex places in the north. That doesn't count. Here is an example of what played on Yonge Street (Fun Street), ironically, at "The Yonge" and some pics of the strip. The ad came from some time I researching library when I was thinking of doing a zine on Toronto's cinema history, long since abandoned, but revitalized thanks to the inter-web. Expect more of this in future postings.
