David Cronenberg’s Videodrome makes Toronto look downright terrifying. In this unforgettable satire of consumerism, leading stars James Woods and Deborah Harry try to uncover the origins of a “snuff” television show that seemingly depicts real murders. The film is never shy about its Toronto setting either: the city’s old Red Rocket buses can be seen in the background of several scenes, and Woods’ character makes his way through the Financial District, Port Lands and offices of Global TV. One of the film’s most memorable locations, “The Cathode Ray Mission,” was shot in the building that now houses the famous Factory Theatre. Long live The Big Smoke!
