Montreal is Canada's hub for all things cinema. This is where the industry began, and many movies are filmed here each year meaning we tend to get a lot of celebrities visiting our city.\nJust this Summer alone both Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston were spending a few weeks enjoying the sights of the city while they filmed their new Netlfix original. Both of the celebrities were seen quite a bit out and about. It makes you wonder what famous people have the privilege of calling Montreal their hometown?\nSurpisingly, quite a few. Maybe it's something in the water, but a lot of well known people in both the film and music industry hail from Montreal. Who knows, maybe you'll see a few around the city sometime soon enjoying their favourite coffee or visiting some places that bring back childhood memories of the city.\nVia Fandom\nShawn Levy\nYou probably know him as the producer of your favourite Netflix series, Stranger Things. What you probably weren't aware of is that the director/producer/actor was actually born in Montreal. Hopefully he isn't getting any inspiration for Stranger Things from memories he has here.\nVia CBS\nMeaghan Rath\nKnown for her popular role on the hit TV show Hawaii Five-0, Meaghan Rath was born and raised in Montreal and even got her acting career started at Montreal's Dawson College.\nView this post on Instagram Y’en Napa d’problèmes........

As of now the band is once again based in our city after living all across Canada, you could say they may have been homesick!\n@grimesembedded via\nGrimes\nYou may know her as the musician popular for her synth-pop and electronica music, or even as the girl who's dating Elon Musk. Although born in Vancouver, Grimes is of Québécois descent and actually relocated to Montreal to attend McGill University and begin her musical journey.\n@macdemarcoembedded via\nMac DeMarco\nWe all know Mac for his lo-fi indie tunes that make for perfect Summer time music, but you probably didn't know he moved to Montreal back in 2011 to help himself start off as a solo recording artist. Obviously it worked pretty well. To this day DeMarco still talks about Montreal super fondly, hopefully he'll come back soon!
