Goodbye Cumberland Cinema

Last night the Cumberland Cinema located in Yorkville in Toronto went dark. One of the first memories that comes mind was standing in line there during the Toronto International Film Festival and buying a copy of the documentary Loose Change of some dude -- which I think is the perfect way to buy a conspiracy documentary, off of some guy hocking blank DVDs with the title Loose Change written on the silver disc with a sharpie -- and than buying Sushi off the cart the Cumberland would wheel outside during TIFF. There was also that great walk down the alleyway from Bloor street and the movie posters hanging above as you walked towards the theater. Here are some photos I took of the theater in the Summer of 2008.
