Eyesore Hell After-Action Report

It's been a week or so and the dust has settled from Anime Hell Night at Eyesore Cinema in Toronto.  So, how did it go? We had a standing room only crowd, we had coffee and donuts, and we had two solid hours of Anime Hell classics mixed with new clips, specially tailored for the discriminating Eyesore audience.



The crowd was made up of different segments of Toronto fun-seekers - Anime North attendees, local bad-movie aficionados, a few curious fans, newly arrived Torontonians and people who had lived in the neighborhood for years, yet hadn't visited Eyesore yet.

A special thanks goes out to The Silver Snail - 329 Yonge St - for posting our Hell flyers, and of course thanks to Eyesore Cinema - 1176 Bloor - for hosting our evening, and to Adam Riot Thorn for PR, prizes and ballyhoo!

I predict we'll be back in Eyesore's back room with even more screenings, so stay tuned!

We're bustin' out of the anime con scene and into one of North America's last remaining bastions of video rental madness, Toronto's Eyesore Cinema. Put on your boots and join us at 8pm Saturday, January 13 for a special show in Eyesore's screening room!


That's Eyesore Cinema, 1176 Bloor St West! See you there!
