The Emerson Hotel has a spacious lobby, some charming rooms, and if you know the right route to take, a time machine connected through a few back hallways. Sound intriguing?

Toronto's streets will be flooded with movie lovers--and movie stars--this September as the 38th Toronto International Film Festival takes over the city from September 5 to 15, and today the festival has announced the full list of filmmakers and celebrities expected for all the red carpet events.
