  • Cinéma Du Musée illuminates the seventh art with Barco Laser

Seeking to offers visitors an “unparalleled experience,” the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts (MMFA) is transforming its Maxwell Cummings Auditorium into a front-row attraction featuring new film releases, documentaries and gatherings to enrich its multidisciplinary cultural offering.

The cinema project completes MMFA’s rich, multi-faceted offering in visual arts, music, artistic and educational programs. Through its collaboration with Cinema Beaubien, the Museum will ensure premium cinema-quality movie presentation, featuring titles in their original language with subtitles, to appeal to a diverse audience.

Renovations have been taking place this summer, with a central focus on the installation of a Barco Laser projector offering superior image quality and resolution in the world-class DCP screening room.

The new cinema is expected to open late September this year.
