Real talk: even though Montreal is a happening city, it's possible to feel a little bored from time to time. Especially in the Fall. Leaves are changing, school is starting, it's getting colder out and some of us might feel a little restless. But don't worry if you're hanging around, not knowing what to do with your life. Here's a handy list of events to go to, and things to do, to keep you good and entertained. Read on for 15 Things To Do In Montreal When You're Bored This Fall.
1. Catch a free movie at one of 20 Cineplex Theatres
On October 24, you can catch Pitch Perfect for free. Other movies too, but can we all just agree that Pitch Perfect was a masterpiece?
2. Go for some free yoga, compliments of Lululemon
The only thing better than yoga is free yoga.

4. Catch a documentary at the Documentary Film Festival

5. Take a stroll through Beaver Lake
And prepare to have your breath taken away.
6. Save some money and go sample sale shopping
There are tons of sample sales happening during October/November. But S/O to La Grande Braderie de Mode Québécoise taking place this week.
7. Admire the undead at the Zombie Walk
