My good friend Andi State attended the last night of the Cinema Du Parc. She took some absolutely wonderful black and white shots. She was the manager of the Cinema for a couple years around ’97 or ’98 – back when she was my roommate. Her time there lead to the hiring of many people I knew, which afforded me free entry for years to come.
I haven’t heard much more about that final night. I’m sure more photos and stories will start turning up.
“We can say what we want about our cultural superiority vis-à-vis other Canadian cities, but come the end of July, Montreal’s world-class-city status will suffer a massive blow – cinematically, at least. On Aug. 3, the projectors at Cinéma du Parc, this city’s only repertory cinema, will darken for the last time, leaving us with no rep cinema to call our own.” – hour.ca
Go check her photos, they really do capture what was the CDP.
