What’s Happening in Montreal: January 22 to 28

by Lauren Cracower

Winter is back with a vengeance. But instead of hibernating to avoid the below zero temperatures we’re warming up with good food, good deals and a whole lot of culture. Our bodies may be going into escape mode but we’re keeping our brains sharp with new theatre and internationally recognized film.

Banff Mountain Film Festival World Tour 

With over 300 films set in the mountains, this Western Canadian film festival makes a stop in Montreal during its world tour. Some of the notable adventure titles on the roster include award-winning Crossing the Ice, Ernest and Reel Rock 7: Honnold 3.0.

Price: $22

Where: UQAM, Marie-Gerin-Lajoie room, 405 Ste Catherine St. E., 514-987-3000, www.uqam.ca

 

 


Waiting for the Barbarians 

Nobel Prize winner J.M. Coetzee’s book comes to life in this on stage adaptation. Told through the voice of a small town’s magistrate, the story examines humanity and reveals the answer to the question “just who are the barbarians?”

St Paul Dishcrawl 

With just a few tickets left for tonight’s St Paul dishcrawl, we know this is going to be one fine evening of feasting seeing as the original event, tomorrow night, sold out quickly. On the menu are stops at secret locations on St Paul Street in Old Montreal. And if we aren’t one of the lucky few to snag the remaining tickets we can sign up early for the February 5th Golden Square Mile Vegan Adventure.

Price: $60

Where: Starting location TBA to ticket holders
