TL;DR Montreal has been transformed into New York in 1942 for a new movie called Midway Starring Woody Harrelson, Mandy Moore and Nick Jonas.

That's because there is a movie being filmed in Montreal called Midway. According to IMDB, the movie is about the story of the battle of Midway, told by the leaders and the soldiers who fought it.

The movie stars none other than Woody Harrelson who you can see in the photo dressed as Admiral Chester Nimitz.

The rest of the cast includes Mandy Moore, Luke Evans, Dennis Quaid, Aaron Eckhart and Nick Jonas! 

The movie is set in 1942 so the producers figured that Montreal's City Hall on Notre Dame Street East would be the perfect backdrop. 

There were classic cars, army jeeps and if you look closely, you can even see an old timey New York yellow cab parked behind Woody Harrelson.
