Bleu soir

Tickets on sale now!

Cinéma Public is renewing its collaboration with Livart this summer by presenting Bleu soir, a series of summer screenings in Montreal that will take place from June 26 to August 31, 2002.

From Sunday to Thursday, at dusk, the interior courtyard of the art centre located on the Plateau-Mont-Royal will be transformed into an open-air cinema. This will be an opportunity to watch films carefully selected by the Cinéma Public team in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere, with a bar service to enjoy the sweet summer evenings. The program is made up of cult and must-see films, awarded at several international festivals, as well as new and exclusive films that will appeal to both seasoned film buffs and curious neophytes. Bleu soir is also punctuated by special events, in the attendance of guests, as well as an access to the current exhibition at Livart.

Co-presented and hosted by Livart
