The festival is back on!
Though there were reports this morning that the Toronto Film Festival's premiere venue was infested with bed bugs, sources from Cineplex have sent out a press release stating that the situation has been resolved. The statement reads:
"Late yesterday afternoon, Cineplex contracted the services of Abell Pest Control Inc., (Abell), who are experts in their field, to investigate a claim made by a theatre guest that they had been bitten by bed bugs and believed it had occurred while they were watching a movie at our Scotiabank Theatre Toronto. After a thorough investigation overnight, which involved a specially trained sniffing dog and a secondary visual inspection, Abell has confirmed that there were no bed bugs located within the Scotiabank theatre."
Wonderful! It would have really, REALLY sucked if those icky creepy crawlers spoiled all the fun!
