Montreal Museum of Fine Arts entrances movie enthusiasts with top-notch cinema
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.
