"Place des Arts - Theatre Maisonneuve (1967)" Architectural/Culture (Old and New) Tip by yooperprof
Architectural/Culture (Old and New), Montreal: 39 reviews and 48 photos
Favorite thing: A vital part of the Place des Arts is the large scale building that houses the Theatre Maisonneuve. The theatre seats 1500 people with a classic proscenium stage format. It was designed by the local architectural firm of David, Barott & Boulva, and opened in 1967 - in time for the famous "Expo" of that year. The structure certainly presents a facade in keeping the stark brutalism of so much 1960s design - although I've read that inside the theatre, the acoustics and sight-lines are excellent. Stll, it's not exactly an inviting structure!
