Cinéma L’Amour is for Architectural Historians and Trollers

Cinema L'Amour, Montreal

Cinéma L’Amour has the distinction of being the oldest movie hall of its kind in Montreal, yet the interior design has remained virtually unchanged since it opened over a century ago. At the heart of Montreal’s Jewish community, in its first years it housed a Yiddish theatre. As time passed and the social climate changed, the decision was made in 1969 to transform it into a grind-house featuring explicit, adult-themed movies, which remains its primary function to this day.

      hey – hope you enjoy your stay in montreal. re: parking – yes, you’ll have no trouble finding parking near the theater, either directly on st-laurent or on any of the side-streets. make sure you read the signs, though. you’re sure to get a ticket if you’re parked in a zone that’s reserved for residents with monthly parking tags.

      re: saturday nights – sorry, i couldn’t say. truth is i’ve never had a partner to go there with.
