Looking for a Dave fix? Check out Canada's Top Ten for a screening of Don McKellar's second feature, Childstar, on Friday, January 28 at 8:45 p.m. at Cinemathèque Ontario (in Toronto).
Here's the storyline:
McKellar returns with a witty, surprisingly sensitive look at the crazed life of a bratty pre-teen celebrity. A commentary on the movie industry, cross-border relations and the meaning of family, Childstar features an accomplished cast, including Jennifer Jason Leigh, Dave Foley and, of course, Alan Thicke in a memorable cameo.
Dave Foley and Alan Thicke, together at last! How can you pass up that action, I ask you?
The screening is preceded by a panel discussion at 6:30:

Looks like there's a new blog for Spanish-speaking KITH fans atthekidsinthehall.blogspot.com. (I noticed it listed in my site referrals. Which reminds me, I don't mind it when people take pictures from my site-- they're not my property and should be shared with all fans, which is why I don't watermark them-- but it IS nice when people acknowledge where they got them, like this person did. Just an FYI. :)
this is a weblog devoted to comedy troupe kids in the hall. are you a KITH fan? tend to be good at finding things of notifiable content? want to join? drop me an email! (it may take a while, but i'll get to it)
