See anyone you recognize in this picture, taken tonight by SooToday.com at Galaxy Cinemas at Station Mall?

Yup, that guy in the front, trying to look inconspicuous in the ball cap, really is Michael Moore, the Oscar-winning documentary filmmaker and best-selling author.

For those of you who want to turn the spot into a shrine or something, or just sit where Michael sat, he was in the eighth row, far left seat in Theatre 12.

Moore said he heard about Jan Harlan being here for a screening of his film Stanley Kubrick: A Life in Pictures at the Shadows of the Mind Film Festival.

"I live in Michigan and I heard on the radio that Jan was going to be here showing his film. I hadn't seen it yet," said Moore.

"Kubrick is my favourite filmmaker and so it seemed like a good pilgrimage to come to Canada and take a look at Stanley Kubrick's life."

Moore drove up for an opportunity to see the film on the big screen, and popped in half an hour before showtime to chat with Harlan, sign autographs and pose for pictures with fans.

"I enjoyed it. It was great," he said of his unpublicized visit.

The Shadows of the Mind Film Festival continues through Sunday.

Tomorrow, SooToday.com will post coverage of Harlan's remarks.
