Killer B Cinema

Micro Cinema

Micro Cinema? What the heck is Micro Cinema you ask? It’s a term coined by a friend of ours, Greg Woods. Greg and three of his colleagues run a Film Noir movie night called Toronto Film Noir Syndicate. During a conversation we were having about movie nights held in pubs and Rep Theatres here in Toronto, he cleverly came up with the term to describe what we do!

My husband and I run a monthly b-movie night at See-Scape on the first Friday of every month called Killer B Cinema. We are one of several fun Micro Cinema events happening in Toronto. Our events are inexpensive and a lot of fun. You get to see movies that you may otherwise not see, unless you are already into b-movies. Even if you are, it’s a lot more fun to see the movie on a larger screen and in a room full of like-minded people!

Day 24

Day 24! I can’t believe I’m on day 24 already! I honestly look forward to waking up and doing yoga every day. They say it takes 28 days to break or start a new habit. I’m 4 days away from 28, but I already feel this is now a daily habit. A healthy habit.


I LOVE B MOVIES! All kinds, from all eras. It’s why Zed Dulac and I started Killer B Cinema. We both grew up watching them. Though I loved them then, I don’t think I really started to appreciate them until I was older. The plots, the costumes, the badly written scripts! One of my all-time favourites that I NEVER get bored watching is Plan 9 From Outer Space. I love Ed Wood Jr. for not just this movie, but for his motivation to live out his dream of making movies. He was a fascinating person with an inspiring drive. When I want to give up on a creative project I will say to myself, would Ed Wood have given up. NO! So I don’t either.


Do you have a favourite b movie? A favourite genre? Who is still doing the Yoga Challenge?
