The outdoor cinemas to discover in Quebec this summer

By Marie-Pier Hamon – on in Life
Would you enjoy watching a movie without being inside on hot summer nights? Here are 8 outdoor cinemas all located in the province of Quebec!

Watching a movie between lovers or with your kids is always pleasant. One can listen to it at home or live the complete experience by going to the movie theatre. However, it is less pleasant to stay cooped up at home to watch a movie during the summer. This is why outdoor cinemas are more and more popular with moviegoers. Here are 8 outdoor cinemas to discover all over the province of Quebec. Why spend your summer inside when you can enjoy the joys of the summer season?

In collaboration with the Quartier des spectacles, Radio-Canada will project four Quebec films for free this summer at the Jardin Gamelin in Montreal: Bon Cop, Bad Cop 2, Les Rois mongols and De père en flic 2. Radio-Canada’s objective is, of course, to make people discover these film works but also to make Quebec culture shine.

The Rencontres internationales du documentaire de Montréal (RIDM) invites you to see 7 documentary screenings outside. These will begin as soon as the sun goes down and will sometimes be followed by discussions with the documentary’s filmmakers. These works will be shown in various parks and unusual locations.


8 Film noir au Canal

If you’re a detective film lover, you should add the Festival du Film Noir au Canal to your agenda. Every week, you can watch cult crime movies outside in St. Patrick’s Square. You will love this outdoor cinema for the musical performances that precede the cinematographic performances and because the cinematographic projections start at nightfall…

 

Although outdoor cinemas have many advantages, these remain at the mercy of the weather. They are, therefore, cancelled in case of rain. If you still want to watch a movie in an original way, why not get a video projector and sit on blankets in the living room? Kids will love watching a movie this way while eating popcorn!
