New 10am Film Festival


Time Out says

Toho's popular 10am Film Festival – a season of morning movie screenings that allowed audiences to revisit classics from Belle de Jour to Back to the Future – returned in digital form last year, and the overwhelmingly positive viewer reaction led to the program being continued for another 12 months.
