Not today, boredom. Not today.

Real talk: even though Montreal is a happening city, it's possible to feel a little bored from time to time. Especially in the Fall. Leaves are changing, school is starting, it's getting colder out and some of us might feel a little restless. But don't worry if you're hanging around, not knowing what to do with your life. Here's a handy list of events to go to, and things to do, to keep you good and entertained. Read on for 15 Things To Do In Montreal When You're Bored This Fall.

1. Catch a free movie at one of 20 Cineplex Theatres
