Doors Open Toronto is May 26 and 27.
Bloor Annex BIA and partners participating include:
Hot Docs Cinema
Citizen Jane (Free Screening)
Once our neighbour here in the Annex, Jane Jacobs played an integral role in making sure Toronto looks and feels the way it does today; her successful opposition to the Spadina expressway helped ensure the city was for people first, and cars second. But before she moved to Toronto, Jacobs stood up to the rapid urbanization in New York City. Her inspiring drive to fight for what is right against the rich and powerful, and her ideas on urban issues are even more relevant today.
Explore our building and immerse yourself in the history of the Annex! As part of Doors Open Toronto, enjoy free behind-the-scenes tours of the Cinema, short films about the neighbourhood created by Myseum of Toronto, and a free film screening.
