Free Outdoor Movies All Summer Long At Montreal's Peace Park

Never pay 12 dollars for a film this summer.

Who needs a drive-in movie theater when the SAT is hosting outdoor film screening for no charge at all? See movies of all genres every Tuesday at 9pm from June 13th to September 16th at Place le la Paix (map) under the stars as part of the SAT's Downtown Screenings Under the Stars. Summer nights spent watching films on blankets are better than sitting in a cramped car anyway. More romantic, too.

Aside from the weekly screenings, special viewings will also occur on the opening date (this Friday, June 13th) as well as on June 13, July 12th, July 13th, and September 26th (the final film). Free for any and everyone, you can easily become more of a film buff by summer's end.

An eclectic mix of films will be screened as the SAT will be in collaboration with many of Montreal's media festivals like Fantasia, POP Montreal, The International Black Film Festival, Cinema Politica and many more. See the full listing of screenings here and choose your shows.

See what's in store for you at the SAT's Downtown Screenings Under the Stars through the promo video below.
