This video shows Montreal street names being changed to New York ones. MTL Blog reporter Alex Melki was able to have an individual confirm that it was allegedly part of the filming for Transformers: Rise Of The Beasts.
And from what the following photos show, it's looking like there are all kinds of different cars in whichever film is being shot at the moment, which is very on-brand for a Transformers movie.

We know Transformers: Rise Of The Beasts is for sure being filmed in Montreal, we simply cannot confirm this movie set is for the film — although it's highly likely to be. And if that's true, then that means Anthony Ramos, one of the main actors in the new movie, could be in Montreal. Keep your eyes peeled!

While the event is free, you have to reserve online in advance and you'll be denied entry without a ticket.
You can reserve seats on Ticketmaster 24 hours ahead of the game, with a maximum of four tickets per person. Tickets are only available digitally and printed tickets won't be accepted, so you'll have to show your ticket on your phone.
The whole site accommodates people with restricted mobility, but only Zone C has accessible bathrooms, reserved parking and private access from Rue Saint-Catherine O.
You won't be able to join people in other zones and you must remain in your ticketed zone at all times, so make sure you book the same zone as your friends.
Here's how you can use public transportation to reach your zone:
Zone A can be reached via Place des Arts metro station, at the de Bleury exit. Once outside, go south on Rue de Bleury until you reach Rue Sainte-Catherine O.
Zone B can be accessed via the Saint-Laurent metro station. Once outside, go west on Boul. de Maisonneuve until you reach Rue Saint-Urbain.
Zone C can also be accessed via the Saint-Laurent metro station. Once outside, go west on Boul. de Maisonneuve until Rue Saint-Urbain, then go south to 1444, rue Saint-Urbain.
The surrounding streets will be closed to traffic, save for Rue Saint-Urbain, which grants entry to the Complexe Desjardins, Place des Arts and Indigo parking lots.
Four screens will broadcast the match. The screening site opens at 5 p.m. and the hockey game starts at 8 p.m.

Daniel Séguin, Senior Vice President of National Operations Exhibition & LBE at Cineplex, gave me a tour of the newly renovated VIP theatres, which are equipped with some of the comfiest reclining shares I've ever sat in. You even have the option to heat your seat.
Seguin let me know that this is the first of its kind in downtown Montreal, another Cineplex VIP can be found in Brossard. There are five theatres in the Forum VIP section, with a range of 46 to 99 seats per theatre. So, it's a very intimate experience.
