Are you looking for something fun and spooky to do in the spirit of Halloween? You’re in luck! TIFF Bell Lightbox’s annual fundraising event, Boombox, is back — October 25 .
The renowned building, in the heart of Toronto’s entertainment district is an artsy cinema by day. But, when this event rolls around, the Lightbox re-awakens at night as the ultimate Halloween party destination.
What to expect?
Attendees will experience an array of bloodcurdling terrors and delights, including headlining DJs Kardinal Offishall and Cipha Sounds, music, art, culinary concoctions, and immersive experiences (watch out for the zombie attacks!).
Funds raised at boombox will go towards supporting TIFF and Share Her Journey, TIFF’s five-year commitment to increasing participation, skills, and opportunities for women behind and in front of the camera.
Tickets to boombox are $175 for the public and $125 for youth 25 and under. Doors open at 9pm.
Don’t forget to dress up! The winner of this year’s costume contest will win an extra special prize.
Creative producer Kyle Kofsky has curated a one-of-a-kind experience for boombox, bringing classic Halloween favourites to life for all to enjoy. There’s no telling what manner of creature might await when you enter the party. Start off with When Birds Attack, an art installation and soundscape inspired by one of
Hitchcock’s most notable works, The Birds. Next, bring your best moves to the dance floor as Toronto legend Kardinal Offishall and DJ Cipha Sounds provide the tunes for boombox’s massive atrium dance floor. Ready to join the zombie apocalypse? Experience the end of the world with the immersive experience Dawn of the Dead: Toronto, taking place at the loading docks. Recharge with an onsite food truck, but be sure not to let your guard down. The zombies could be back at any time!
