As part of the 6th All-Nighter at the MONTREAL HIGH LIGHTS Festival, the Quartier des spectacles and La Vitrine invite you discover a full night of high-caliber cultural opportunities.

With more than 60 activities available in an area of less than one square kilometer, the Quartier des spectacles is definitely the place to be on this festive night.

Your starting point for a night of cultural discovery: La Vitrine, the official information booth of the All-Nighter, whose doors will be open until 5am. While you're there, you can pick up a copy of the Quartier des spectacles Walking Tour brochure. This handy guide will help you discover the richness of the neighbourhood through area’s institutions, from its well-known halls to its many hidden gems.

In addition to telling you about the various activities underway for the evening, La Vitrine will warm you up with a program of events that are out of the ordinary. Fresh from winning the Créativité Montréal 2008 Grand Prize for the Urban Integration – Urban Planning category, the Quartier des spectacles invites you to come back and play some more with the dynamic façade of La Vitrine. Thanks to the creative talent of Moment Factory, passersby can come interact with the luminous forms displayed on the giant screen. A technical and artistic achievement, the screen is lit with 35,000 LED bulbs.
