A guilty pleasure of readers worldwide, the racy novel Fifty Shades of Grey sold 30 million copies in the United States between March and June of last year alone. The exceedingly popular story, which centers on the relationship between a naïve college graduate and a billionaire with a sadistic sexual appetite, inspires the spoof Spank! The Fifty Shades Parody, a live-action musical interpretation of the acclaimed softcore novel. The theatrical comedy—written and directed by Jim Millan, whose credits include Mythbusters Live and the documentary Kids in the Hall: Tour of Duty—thrills onlookers with the brawn of a Thunder from Down Under dance routine and the nonstop hilarity of a whoopee cushion stuck on repeat.

The Victory, The Embassy, The Astor, The Showcase, The Festival – no matter what name it’s gone by, the Panasonic Theatre has been known an entertainment landmark for the better part of a century. The building was constructed as a private residence in 1911 before being converted into a cinema in 1919. Despite several changes in title, the space remained a movie theatre for the next few decades, and served as the host of the Toronto International Film Festival. In the early ‘90s the movie house was converted yet again, this time into a venue for stage drama, or “life-movies.” It’s last, and perhaps most significant, transformation came in 2004, when it was rebuilt from the ground up. Today, the Panasonic Theatre pays tribute to its multifaceted past by hosting a variety of comedic, dramatic, and musical performances.
