“Movie House of Worship” is a regular feature spotlighting our favorite movie theaters around the world, those that are like temples of cinema catering to the most religious-like film geeks. This week we look at a currently relevant but always excellent movie house in Canada. If you’d like to suggest or submit a place you regularly worship at the altar of cinema, please email our weekend editor.  Name: TIFF Bell Lightbox Location: 350 King Street West, Toronto, Ontario, Canada Opened: September 12, 2010, as the official hub and screening venue for the Toronto International Film Festival, as well as the home for TIFF programming and events throughout the year. The theater is located in and part of a newly constructed complex. No. of screens: 5 Current first run titles: For the past ten days, the 2012 festival has naturally monopolized the theater’s screens, but starting Friday, September 21st, there is Beasts of the Southern Wild, Tabu and the new Canadian releases Laurence Anyways and Rebelle.

One of the best horror films of all time focuses on the killer instead of the audience. Fortunately, the killer is the audience. He’s got a camera, and he’s ready to use it. He’s also got a phallic symbol with a sharp pointy tip to watch you scream as he stabs you to death and records your end. The year was 1960, and it was part of the change in cinema (and the self-referential tone that many movies would later adopt). Go out and see it right now, but watch the trailer first. Think you know what it is? Check the trailer out for yourself:
