 Great News for Toronto ballet fans!

The Bloor Cinema will be showing the Royal Ballet broadcasts, starting with Kenneth MacMillan's  Manon on Saturday January 17th at noon. If you missed the National Ballet of Canada's performances in November, DO NOT MISS THIS OPPORTUNITY to see one of the great works in the repertoire, with absolutely fabulous passionate pas de deux. (If you did see the NBOC performances, well... you'll want to see it again!)

Please support this initiative to make sure we continue to get Royal Ballet broadcasts. Steps from Bathurst subway station. The Royal Ballet in downtown Toronto!

Tickets are ONLY $15!! ($12 for Bloor Cinema members). Scroll down for more info.
