Description: "01/02/1972: The Metro police bomb squad removed an incendiary device from outside the New Yorker Cinema, after receiving a telephone bomb threat. Both the theatre and Canadian Press received the bomb threat calls. Bomb squad detectives stood guard over a hot and bubbly device left in the Yonge St. theatre showing, ""The Garden of Finzi-Continis;"" the movie was about Italy’s treatment of Jews during the second world war, especially the 1938 persecution of Jews in Italy. An attendant at the New Yorker theatre discovered a package in the men's washroom and rushed it out of the building to a sand saltbox. Bomb squad investigators removed the package and took it to a remote section of the beach. Members of the Jewish Defense League were to guard the downtown Toronto theatre to prevent the placing of another bomb. Police found a clumsy firebomb in the men's washroom on the following Sunday. Celia Airst stated that the theatre would be guarded for as long as it plays the movie. "
