Winter isn't coming - in fact, it might be on its way out at this point - but HBO's epic fantasy show 'Game of Thrones' has definitely arrived in Canada. The show is exhibiting a selection of props and costumes at the TIFF Bell Lightbox in Toronto. The show's second season premieres April 1st, and the Lightbox is showing weapons, props, photography, costumes, and yes, the Iron Throne itself, to celebrate.

Also in attendance: the writer who created the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros, George R.R. Martin. The author of the 'Fire and Ice' series of novels that the show is based on will be in the red chair for an interview this coming Tuesday, March 15th.

Check out some pictures of 'Game of Thrones: the Exhibition' below, and if you're in the Toronto area between March 9th and 18th, you can visit it yourself. The Exhibition is open from 12pm to 8pm daily, except on March 12th (12pm to 10pm) and March 13 (10am to 8pm). Tickets are free, but must be reserved in advance for a specific time and date. Get all the information right here.

HBO Canada has also teamed up with the Vancouver International FIlm Festival and will be presenting an day-long marathon of Game of Throne's first season at VIFF's Vancity Theatre. Fans will also have the opportunity to have their picture taken on the Iron Throne. Admission is free and on a first-come basis.
