    Okay... The plan as I know it... we'll meet at the Swiss Chalet near the Bloor Cinima before the movie... I think I'll shoot to be there for 7:30.

    570 Bloor Street West, Toronto, ON M6G 1K1, Canada (Swiss Chalet Rotisserie & Grill)

    JUST across from Honest Ed's... 1 block West of Bloor Cinema same side (North side)

    Well... Alex found out before we did that the Swiss Chalet there has closed... but it was all good, we went and had the gormet food of Burgerking! Yum Yum...

    Repo was quite brilliant IMHO! There were at least 5 people that dressed up for the show, and did a pretty good job of it too. Head blew me away, he was his character. His Jeckle/hyde portrayal was spot on. Normally I'd have soething to say about some continuity or stage mistake, but I was a bit more distrated by the actual movie for a change to see the little things that I normally like to look for. Which I think says alot about this movie. Paris Hilton did pretty good, and best of all - they had her face fall off.

    There was a Q&A after the show... costume designer Alex Kavanagh was one of the three. (The one I remember)... the was an executive producer (?) there... and one of the lead dancers (the one in black bra and panties that stradled Hilton at one point). The Q&A was cool, got to hear some stories of being on set, and why it's not a full release... and how hard they had it trying to get the Limited release. Also that it will be coming to DVD this January!

    Over all, I feel this movie was very fun to watch and quite different in style to really compare to anything else. They all say it, it is a cross between Rocky Horror and Blade Runner, and I think it really was in there somewhere.

    EDIT - Oh yes... and it was filmed completely in Toronto.
