Autism In Love

Wednesday May 18, 2022 7:00pm – Finding and maintaining romantic relationships can be challenging for anyone, but for those with Autism Spectrum Disorder, impairments in social interaction and difficulties with verbal and non-verbal communication can make it next to impossible. Or so you might think before watching Matt Fuller’s hopeful and affecting documentary on four adults with ASD. Post-screening discussion with Dr. Grace Iarocci and Dr. Ira Heilveil (zoom).

Frames of Mind Returns to The Cinematheque!

We missed you too! It’s hard to believe, but it’s been over two years since our last in-cinema presentation. We’ve offered a few films online since that time, but as we’re sure you’ll agree, nothing beats the fulsome experience of watching a film in a theatre and discussing it afterwards live and in person.

Although it’s come and gone, September 2021 marked the beginning of our twentieth year as a monthly series here at The Cinematheque. To mark our return to the theatre, we’re going to start off by replaying a few of our favourites from the last ten years, starting with 15 Reasons to Live, by Toronto filmmaker Alan Zweig, on April 27, and (then resuming our regular third Wednesday of the month) the heart-warming documentary Autism in Love on May 18. 

Please note our new, permanent start time of 7:00 pm.

We look forward to seeing you at the theatre.
