LSTW x Aires Libres Movies Nights 2017

Leave your thoughts

You know summer is on its way when a wave of colourful balls adorns the skies over the Village. The arrival of the serpentine strings of spheres, created by landscape architect Claude Cormier, kicks off four months of public art, a pedestrian-only Sainte-Catherine East and a must-see film series, co-organized by LSTW.

We are pleased to unveil this year’s open-air program of international movies, in partnership with the Aires Libres festival. Twelve diverse offerings, screened weekly from June to August at dusk in the Parc de l’espoir at the corners of Sainte-Catherine Street East and Panet.

Drop by the Village this summer to revisit short, feature and documentary films and web series that have marked our communities over the past two decades, along with fresh creations that are breaking new ground.
