To mark the 375th anniversary of Montréal, Cité Mémoire will
unveil the Grand Tableau Cité Mémoire, a 35-minute display of
images of music projected onto the monumental walls of the
courthouse. On the Champ-de-Mars, every evening at the same
time, a recap of more than 375 years of history, major events
and tales awaits. While you’re there have a look at the three
new tableaux by Cité Mémoire that feature Jeanne Mance on
Saint-Paul Street, the Great Peace of Montreal near the
Pointe-à-Callière museum, as well as the Expo 1967 hostess on
McGill Street. You’ll see: there’s something extraordinary just
around the corner.
