Destination of the Day: 'Scott Pilgrim vs. the World', filmed in Toronto, ON

Destination 4 in the series "Ready for my close-up"


FINALLY, a film shot in Toronto about people living in Toronto!  While many professional reviewers liked the film's energy, it underperformed at the box office.  One of the locations used is Casa Loma.  Built for Sir Henry Mill Pellatt it is now a massive historic house museum.  The nearby TCC Dupont subway station makes the very easy to visit.

Plot (from Wikipedia): Scott Pilgrim vs. the World is a 2010 comedy film directed by Edgar Wright, based on the graphic novel series Scott Pilgrim by Bryan Lee O'Malley. The film is about Scott Pilgrim (Michael Cera), a young Canadian musician, meeting the girl of his dreams, Ramona Flowers (Mary Elizabeth Winstead), an American delivery girl. In order to win Ramona, Scott learns that he must defeat Ramona's "seven evil exes", who are coming to kill him.
