Toronto to get Reitman Square

The Reitman family, including Ghostbusters director Ivan Reitman and his sisters, along with another prominent Toronto family, are working with the Toronto Film Fest to develop a new film studies building, which will include a number of theaters, learning centers, an archive, and so on. The Toronto Film Festival has announced that a nearby city square will be named Reitman Square, in honor of Ivan’s parents (who were more than just mom and dad to the filmmaker, but important local business owners.)

Ivan Reitman and his sisters say Reitman Square will honour their parents and “give back to the city and to the country” that took them in as immigrants.

Thanks to Joe for the heads-up.
