The Black Museum Series 2
It's baaaaaack! The Black Museum returns to Toronto with a second series of fascinating genre lectures. This season's offerings run the gamut from time travel to horror posters, in what looks to be an enlightening springtime lecture series:
March 21, 2013: “Primate Panic: Bigfoot on Film 1967-1980”
Instructor: Paul Corupe
April 4, 2013: “Tourism in the 4th Dimension: Parallel Realities and Time Loops in Cinema”
Instructor: Clint Enns
April 18, 2013: “Ghosts in the Machine: The Evolution of Found Footage Horror”
Instructor: Alexandra West
May 2, 2013: “Raising Hell: Ken Russell and the Unmaking of The Devils”
Instructor: Richard Crouse
May 16, 2013: “Killer Portraits: Iconography of the Horror Film Poster”
Instructor: Andrea Butler
Named after old Scotland Yard's crime gallery, The Black Museum is a series of genre lectures given by industry professionals. Hosted by Big Picture Cinema (formally The Projection Booth East), the evening lectures are casual, intimate gatherings. Although education is the driving force behind the lecture series, The Black Museum's curators, Paul Corupe and Andrea Subissati created the series to bring the horror community together through a shared passion for genre learning and development.
Tickets for the spring series are on sale March 8, and may be purchased individually or as a membership pass. Postmortems of last season's lectures are available on the The Black Museum's website, as is further information regarding this season's series.
