Celebrate Halloween – Each year, the city of Montreal is the host to many different halloween themed events all throughout the month of October. This year, both the museum McCord and the Stewart museum, are hosting a special halloween night. These two events are perfect for curious children and if you want to change your halloween traditions a little.
McCord Museum – Art & Illusions
The McCord Museum is creating a unique and special program just for halloween week. There will be cinema installations, music, story telling and much more. On Friday October 27th from 7 pm, there will be a projection of Rupert Julian’s silent film, The Phantom of the Opera. On Saturday October 28th, from 10 a.m until 5 p.m, you will be able to discover a selection of films about magic and illusions. The films are suitable for all ages. On Sunday October 29th, from 10 a.m until 5 p.m, the museum is organising a “family day” with lots of games and activities to take part in. For tickets to the three day event, click here.
