TIFF officials say no bed bugs in Scotiabank Theatre


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Sounds like the bed bugs won’t be biting attendees of the Toronto International Film Festival.

Responding to reports that an audience member received bites while at the Scotiabank Theatre – hub for TIFF’s upcoming press and industry screenings – festival officials have scoped out the area and declared it clean.

“We called in the experts. Thorough investigation was had. OUTCOME: Scotiabank theatre TO is #bedbug FREE!” Cineplex stated on their Twitter feed, @cineplexmovies.

The Toronto Globe & Mail followed up, reporting, “The company … got the all clear from Abell Pest Control Inc., which it hired Monday afternoon after hearing from a theatre guest who thought he’d been bitten by the pests at the Scotiabank theatre.”

“After a thorough investigation overnight, which involved a specially trained sniffing dog and a secondary visual inspection, Abell has confirmed that there were no bed bugs located within the Scotiabank theatre,” Cineplex said in a statement.

So rest easy, TIFF patrons. And know that while one or two movies might bite at Toronto, the bed bugs – for now – will not.
