Now, kids with autism can have a better experience going to the movies.
Every year, movie stars, directors and producers flock to Toronto. This week marks the 39th year of the Toronto International Film Festival.
On Sunday night, the motion picture industry had its biggest night of the year. The 85th annual Academy Awards were handed out. They are also known as “The Oscars.” The show is seen around the world by more than a billion people.
The show was hosted by Seth MacFarlane, who is known for creating and doing the voices for the cartoon series Family Guy.
Oscars are awards given to the best filmmakers including the best director, actress and actor and the best in other areas of the industry such as special effects creator and costume designer.
The biggest award is always saved for last: Best Picture. This year it went to the film Argo.
There is a new musical playing in New York called Spider Man: Turn On the Dark, based on the popular comic book character Spiderman.
A musical is a type of play performed live onstage, but instead of telling the story by speaking, the actors sing. The music for Spiderman was written by Bono and The Edge from the band U2.
This musical hasn’t actually officially opened yet, but it has already received a lot of attention and not because it’s a really good musical. Spiderman has received so much attention because many actors have been hurt during the performances. There have been broken limbs, cracked bones and internal bleeding whenever an actor falls from the rafters.
