Cinema du Parc

Our story​

Built in 1976 under the name of Cinéma La Cité, Cinéma du Parc bore many successive names and identities over the years. It was the first cinema complex with more than two screens in Montreal when it opened under the aegis of "Famous Players" and its existence is closely linked to the urban development of the Milton-Park district and the construction of the high-rise buildings that border the McGill University campus.

Taken over in 2006 by Roland Smith, programmer and former general manager of Cinéma Outremont, Cinéma du Parc counted on 40 years of experience for its revival. The gamble paid off : by organizing retrospectives, thematic cycles, festivals, national weeks and premieres, the cinema succeeded, and still succeeds, in reaching many Montreal filmgoers, both French and English-speaking, and also several cultural communities in the greater Montreal area.

Since March 2013, the general management of Cinéma du Parc has been entrusted to Mario Fortin, also general manager of Cinéma Beaubien, who has 40 years of experience in the film industry.

The new team proceeded, for example, to the installation of digital DCP projectors in two theatres, to the enlargement of the screens and to the renovation of the seats. The 35mm projectors have also been kept to ensure the projection of film prints during retrospectives or special events.

Cinéma du Parc, Beaubien and du Musée are administered by a non-profit organization that subscribes to the principles of the social economy. General management, administrative services (accounting, etc.), communications and other common services are provided by the same team.

Since October 2022, general management has been entrusted to Roxanne Sayegh.
