The next in our series of curated screenings at the lovely Genesis Cinema in Mile End sees us pivot in our comics love towards the more indie & alternative side of things.
Comics as a medium stretches far, far beyond the realm of superheroes and we’re pleased to celebrate that with a screening of the 2003 adaptation of Harvey Pekar’s American Splendor – a film that blends reality and fiction, starring Harvey Pekar himself alongside Paul Giamatti playing Pekar as fictionalised in his comics.
As ever, there will be a lovely pop-up store with indie comics and small press bargains galore. We’ll also be introducing the film on the night! Come along on Thursday 8th of March – book your tickets here.
