You may have passed by the Templar Hotel on Adelaide Street without knowing it, the minimalist design philosophy apparently extends to the signage!

A small luxury hotel in the design district, the main lobby was packed after 10 pm on Saturday, September 6, 2014, with guests waiting to meet the cast of “The Sound and the Fury,” James Franco, Janet-Jones Gretzky, Scott Haze and Jacob Loeb.

A red carpet with a logo strewn backdrop outside a venue usually means that’s where the celebrities are going to pose, but in this case, it was the red carpet upstairs where we met the stars, and where a private party was held. Though we didn’t get to see James Franco’s newly shaved head hiding under his black toque, we saw an unexpected guest, Wayne Gretzky, who played his role as a good husband. The film, based on William Faulkner’s classic novel The Sound and the Fury, portrays the fall and decline of an aristocratic Southern family, the Compsons, and reveals the secrets and the dark-side behind the story.
