Cinéma urbain 2019 at Peace Park
All summer long, every Tuesday,
11 open-air movie nights, with a focus on musical themes!
From the Innu community to beautiful Krakow,
Cinéma urbain invites its audience to explore different cultures
and their stories in pictures and music!
For its revised and refreshed 14th edition, the "New" Cinéma urbain presents a line-up celebrating the special role of music in film, from the beginning to the present day. Every Tuesday from June 25 to September 3, the Society for Arts and Technology, in collaboration with the Quartier des spectacles's parternship, will present 11 free movies, in some cases with live musical accompaniment, in others preceded by concerts, in still others followed by discussions with the artists. The net result: a fantastic series of open-air movie-concerts mixing classical, jazz, pop, hip-hop and Indigenous music! During these evenings, on five occasions, the National Film Board of Canada will present short films related to the selected themes.
Over the course of the season, there will be a mix of classic and new Canadian and international films. Everyone is invited to come out and explore different communities and their stories. The program, prepared in close collaboration with guest curator Sandro Forte, vice-president of the Association québécoise des critiques de Cinéma (AQCC), is a celebration of peaceful coexistence — a powerful echo of Montréal’s rich cultural diversity.
Don’t forget to bring blankets and folding chairs!
Have a lovely Cinéma urbain!

TUESDAY SKATE JAMS
