Block party! Free K’naan and cupcakes at tomorrow’s TIFF Bell Lightbox opening

Here’s a TIFF party you don’t need an invite for: Tomorrow, September 12, the TIFF Bell Lightbox is throwing a huge block party to celebrate the grand opening of Toronto’s newest movie house.

The ribbon cutting is at noon, but musical festivities happen all day. The line-up includes Fefe Dobson, The Sadies, and, just announced, the no-longer secret musical guest, Somali-Canadian rapper K’naan. Plus, there’s an exhibit of posters and artifacts from the Essential 100 films, interactive installations and commissions from the likes of Atom Egoyan and Guy Maddin.

And if you’re not sold yet, you should also know that there will be free cupcakes.

The event runs from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at King and John Streets.
