A new performance space has opened at the Quartier Latin pole of the Quartier des spectacles.

Théâtre TELUS, the outcome of a ten-year partnership between Groupe Laberge and TELUS, can welcome up to 1200 people. Groupe Laberge is also the owner of the La Mouche discotheque, next door to the Théâtre Telus.

The hall features a mezzanine and a multifunctional space, and a Saco 10-mm high-definition LED screen is mounted on the side of the building that faces Saint-Denis.

This type of dynamic screen is the kind of installation that the Partnership plans to install on the facades of the neighbourhood’s performance halls. These dynamic marquees will be networked with other components of the lighting plan and the cultural beacons.
