Cheap Thursdays Are Back At Montreal's Planetarium With Films That Transport You To Space

Cheap Thursdays are back at the Planétarium Rio Tinto Alcan, which has adjusted its programming schedule to suit Montreal's new 9:30 p.m. evening curfew.

The reduced-price tickets are available every week for showings after 5:30 p.m. on Thursday but you have to reserve online, as entry is limited.

The $8 ticket cost includes two films in the official language of your choice. The current programming includes Birth of Planet Earth, a voyage through the cosmos, and Continuum, a journey through the splendour of space and time.

On a normal day, adults pay $16.50 for two films.

A March 23 Instagram post by Espace pour la vie — which manages Montreal's Botanical Garden, Biodome and Insectarium — said tickets are already sold out for March 25.

Tickets are available for April 1 and the following Thursdays.
