There’s something romantic about watching a movie under the stars. Especially in these days of multiplex theatres with generic rooms and nowhere to stretch your legs. What could be better than the outdoors? The peaceful tableau of trees and sky, and no one to hassle you about bringing in your own snacks and drinks.
This summer, the SAT is hosting their 10th annual Cinéma urbain a la belle étoile (Downtown Screenings Under the Stars). Located in the Place de la Paix, right next to the SAT’s building, it runs from June 9th to September 8th and takes place every Tuesday at 9pm. Each screening is hosted in collaboration with a Montreal cultural institution– from the SPASM festival’s Back to the Future to Film POP’s French cult film Pinball Summer.
The screenings are free and open to everyone. If it rains, the show is moved to the ground floor of the SAT building (if inside, the screenings are for 18+ only).
This Tuesday, in partnership with the Montreal International Documentary Festival (RIDM), you can see Nick Cave’s documentary, 20 000 Days on Earth. Get the full schedule on Cinéma urbain a la belle étoile’s official page. Grab some Bad Monkey popcorn and create some memories under the Montreal night sky.
