Toronto Film Festival Has Bedbug Problem

Sympathetic itching to commence in .5 seconds: Having already rendered a number of theaters in Manhattan horrifying no-go-zones, bedbugs have apparently infested Toronto’s Scotiabank Theater, the main site for press screenings for the upcoming Toronto Film Festival. The festival co-director, hoping to tamp down the bedbug hysteria, likely fostered it by tweeting “Before bedbugs becomes today's meme: we're on it, we're talking to Cineplex & are planning for an itch-free #TIFF10. “ Coming soon to a theater near you: Hazmat suits!
