Toronto Christmas Market

The Distillery District kicks off a two-week long Christmas market tonight with a performance by Canadian soprano Measha Brueggergosman. This traditional festival is inspired by the street-market festivals of 15th century Germany, so you can expect carolers a singing, a 45-foot tall tree a twinkling and plenty of Glühwein a flowing.

Nov. 30 to Dec. 16

Anna Karenina

Time to don your finest furs. The most recent adaptation of this epic love story opens tonight and stars Keira Knightley and Jude Law. What’s Russian for amahzing?
