Watched a screening of Relative Happiness film. Director attended for a Q and A. Excellent venue. Licenced. Comfortable setting. Gives those of us who haven't been able to attend TIFF or other film festivals a wonderful, accessible sampling of what that experience is like.

Didn't get to see a performance but the staff gave us a tour of the beautiful restored theatre. Worth a look if in the area.
