There's A Free Outdoor Movie In Downtown Montreal This Week

The borough of Ville-Marie is hosting an outdoor movie screening in downtown Montreal to mark the end of summer.

The screening will take place at the foot of Old Montreal in the Parc du Champs-de-Mars behind City Hall. The movie will be projected onto the wall of the Palais de Justice tower. In a Facebook post, Ville-Marie said this was a first-of-its-kind event.

The borough has selected the 2011 movie Monsieur Lazhar directed by Philippe Falardeau. The movie follows an Algerian immigrant to Montreal who "is hired to replace a popular teacher who committed suicide in her classroom," according to the IMDb plot summary. It's rated PG-13.

The event is free, but the borough warns spaces are limited. Prospective attendees are required to reserve tickets on Eventbrite. There are still spots available as of the time of writing.

The projection begins at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, September 2. Ville-Marie also promises on-site entertainment from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.

Attendees 13 years old and older will need to show their vaccine passports to access the site.
