Michael Fassbender at the TIFF Soiree, Sept. 7, 2016
These are my pics. Technically we won’t supposed to take pics in the theater, but they never announced so people were taking pics. I managed to snap about 30 of them before the attendant told me no pics allowed :)
Attendees were greeted with their own personal lock picking kits along with either a key or a lock strung upon red ribbon to wear around their necks. Guests were encouraged to seek out their match, and paired locks and keys were awarded prizes at the end of the night.
Schuyler started the night off strong by wowing the crowd with his ability to pick one lock after another all while blindfolded, before delving into a detailed demonstration on the inner workings of the lock and the various methods of lock picking.
Craft cocktails named in honor of history’s most notorious heists were enjoyed along with the lavish surroundings of the General Society’s Mossman Museum, home to the world’s largest collection of vintage bank vault locks, with early locking mechanisms dating all the way back to 4000 BCE.
I chisel the song, carved from stone, cold like the moon; Sung on trembling lips, no bluer than the wispy notes of love; Wrung dry and broken; No tearing up of the eyes, No bitter sighs no commotion, no confusion; Smooth like the stirring in the gut, The void of the breath leaving the lungs.
