Britgirlintoronto is a collection of observations covering (largely) "all things Toronto". If you are a visitor, have visitors or simply want to find out how exciting and diverse Toronto can be then leave a comment and I will respond
Unfettered with a weekend without the old ball and chain (sorry sweetie), so free to watch as much gratuitous crap as I want when I want – I at least have to show some modicum of discernment when the hubby around. I decided at the last moment to go and see two movies back to back, which is a luxury as I am usually too time-starved.
So lets review one for now:
I started at the AMC in the Toronto Life building off Dundas Square, well actually I started upstairs with a salad and drink on the patio of “Jack Astors “because I like being several floors up looking over the square, the Eaton centre and all the neon lights and video displays. It reminds me of Piccadilly Circus in London.
