Myseum + BLOCKS Present: Main Feature!

Main Feature! engages teams of young and old in a car-free urban photo scavenger hunt, exploring how Toronto’s theatre history has framed the city’s constantly evolving communities. Main Feature! is a one-day adventure that will enhance understanding between generations by exploring cultural history through theaters, not only the variety of film genres but also design and urban navigation of our once thriving Cinema boom!


A Step-by-Step Guide to Main Feature!

Step 1

Meet at TIFF Bell Lightbox to sign up your team.

Step 2

Pick up your scavenger hunt guide and plan your journey around Toronto

Step 3

Based on your guide, try to find these historic movie theatre locations.

Step 4

Photograph each movie theatre based on the instructions in your guide.

Step 5

Send us your photos via email or tag @MyseumOfToronto and @Keep6to on Instagram.

Step 6

Winning teams receive awesome prizes! at Ted Rogers Hot Docs Theatre

How it Works

Using archival photos from the early 1900’s, teams of two will have six hours to identify long-standing film theatre building locations in the here-and-now. Teams will visit locations throughout the city on foot, by public transit or bicycle to collect points by finding and photographing the building or location, and getting as close as possible to the footprint of the original photographer.

Teams will explore and re-imagine the city’s movie theatre, architecture and design, documenting how buildings from the past continue to shape communities, block by block. If possible we encourage cycling as a means of transport for this event. We see cycling as not only a necessary means of transport but as a way to engage with the environment and landscape in a meaningful way. Main Feature! is a wonderful opportunity for cycling enthusiasts to experience this great city on a whole new level and we hope you will join us!
