The Montreal Museum of Fine Arts (MMFA) and the Cinéma Beaubien are proud to announce the official opening of the brand-new Cinéma du Musée. The new space, transformed and furnished with the latest in projection equipment, will enrich downtown Montreal’s cinematographic offering, providing a rich programme of Quebec, Canadian and international fiction films and documentaries.
The first gala première evening of the Cinéma du Musée took place with the preview screening of the film Une colonie directed by Geneviève Dulude-De Celles – opening in February 2019 – which was recently awarded the Grand Prize in the Festival de cinéma de la ville de Québec competition (FCVQ). Guests of honour at the evening were several leading lights of Quebec cinema, including the producer Denise Robert, a patron of the Cinéma du Musée.
This ninth auditorium of the Beaubien and Du Parc network is a new NPO co-managed by the MMFA. The Museum uses the auditorium on Mondays in the daytime and on Wednesdays for its own programme of training activities, lectures, colloquia and documentaries.
The first screenings at the Cinéma du Musée are listed in the calendar of the Journées de la culture on the 28, 29 and 30 of September, featuring, in an open-door format, five free screenings of an exclusive film, Have You Seen my Movie? by Paul Anton Smith. The Festival du nouveau cinéma will be the first event hosted by the Cinéma from October 4 to 14. The Festival CINEMANIA and the Montreal International Documentary Festival will follow shortly afterwards in November.
