Last year, it made the news that Ivan Reitman and family was involved in developing a film studies facility, with a nearby square in downtown Toronto to be named after their parents – the elder Reitmans were prominent local business people.
Now the Reitman clan – or at least the father and son combo of Ivan and Jason – will be attending the gala opening of the Editions Suites, a series of upscale condos. No word what happened to the planned “film studies building, which will include a number of theaters, learning centers, an archive, and so on.” unless those are contained in the Festival Tower below;
A joint-venture between The Daniels Corporation and the Reitman Family,
Festival Tower is a 46-storey condominium situated atop Bell Lightbox, the
celebrated new home of the Toronto International Film Festival.
Those attending the event on Friday, September 11th, will get to interact and have their photos taken with one of three classic film scenes – Ghostbusters, The Wizard of Oz , and Saturday Night Fever.
