2016 Special Events


From October 1 to 22, À La Page, 200 Provencher Boulevard.

In the past 25 years, Cinémental has presented approximately sixty films which were adapted from books. From October 1 to 22, these many books will be on display in the storefront at the À La Page bookstore located at 200 Provencher Boulevard. Biographies, comic books, short stories, historical documents, novels, and scripts are but some of the literary genres which have inspired cinematographers and continue to do so today. Be sure to drop by and take in the large variety of French-language books and magazines. Cinémental would like to thank the À La Page bookstore for this initiative.
