Downtown Screenings Under the Stars in Place de la Paix

Place de la Paix
En français >

For the tenth year in a row, the Society for Arts and Technology [SAT] presents its free outdoor film series Downtown Screenings Under the Stars, in Place de la Paix, in collaboration with the Quartier des Spectacles Partnership and the borough of Ville-Marie. Every Tuesday at 9 p.m., from June 9 to September 8 (excluding June 23), film lovers are invited to enjoy one of 13 free films. Each week, a local film organization will host Montreal’s most eclectic and adventurous outdoor film series./p>

Highlights include a celebration of the 30th anniversary of the classic movie Back to the Future by Robert Zemeckis, presented by the SPASM festival of off beat genre films. The Montreal International Documentary Festival (RIDM) will screen a film that was a big hit at the Sundance and Berlin festivals in 2014, 20 000 Days on Earth by Iain Forsyth and Jane Pollard, which shows 24h in the life of the artist Nick Cave. Film POP will present a rare 16 mm screening of the french version of Pinball Summer (a.k.a. Pick-Up Summer), the saucy Quebec-made summer romp that marked George Mihalka’s filmmaking debut. Cinémania, the festival of French-language films, will present the biggest hit from its most recent edition, Clouds of Sils Maria, directed by Olivier Assayas and starring Juliette Binoche and Kristen Stewart. The Festival du Nouveau Cinema (FNC) will show Kings of the wind & the Electronic Queen by Gaspard Kuentz and Cédric Dupire, a true feat to be felt and experienced, that takes us to an anarchic happening in the form of a celebration of the impossible, destined to ecstasy. In addition to movie nights, the Orchestre de la Francophonie, in residence at the SAT this summer, will perform a special open-air concert on Thursday, June 18!

Once gain this summer, starting June 30, Skate Jam Tuesdays will precede the screenings at 6 pm. After each week’s screening, Espace SAT will also present special events with a musical programme.
