Merci a SJMTL666 de mtlurb d'Avoir trouvé cet article:

Gérald Tremblay espère le tournage de trois films à Montréal
Le maire de Montréal, Gérald Tremblay, est revenu de sa tournée d\'une semaine à Hollywood avec l\'espoir de rapatrier dans la métropole au moins trois productions cinématographiques ou télévisuelles américaines d\'une valeur de 60 millions $.

En compagnie notamment du commissaire du Bureau du cinéma et de la télévision du Québec, Hans Fraikin, le maire Tremblay a rencontré quelques producteurs à Los Angeles, pour les convaincre de venir tourner à Montréal.

Montréal espère décrocher au moins deux productions de cinéma et une série télévisée, au cours des neuf prochains mois.

Pour mousser sa ville comme lieu privilégié de tournage, Gérald Tremblay a accordé des entrevues aux principaux journaux de Los Angeles, dont le Times et le Hollywood Reporter.

Ha ha I wish! I was in the middle of final exams but took Saturday off of studying (beer: before, during and after.. fireworks!).

I'm a huge film fan and had no idea of the quantity and quality of Québécois cinema and TV until I arrived here.

My favourite movies so far:
l'Audition
La Moitié gauche du frigo
Les Invasions barbares
La Grande Seduction
C.R.A.Z.Y
20h17 rue Darling
Québec-Montréal
La Vie avec mon père

TV shows I never miss:
Laflaque
C.A.
Tout sur moi
Infoman
Tout le monde en parle
Les Boys
And of course.. THE HABS!!

My favourite actors are Luc Picard (he directed and starred in l'Audition, such an awesome movie!) and definately Isabelle Blais! I'm totally in love with her and would stalk her if I had the time!!

Two things
1) I saw a wee blurb on tv about a documentary on Phyllis Lambert, daughter of
the Bronfman clan, and one of the most important architectural figures in Canada's history. She prevented a huge Eaton Centre being built that would have blocked one of the last views of Mount Royal, and she was responsible for convincing the Chairman of the Toronto Dominion Bank in Toronto to hire Mies Van der Rohe to build the TD Centre, which is one of the most important examples of International Design architecture in Canada. She did countless other things too founding the Canadian Centre for Architecture in Montreal in 1979
The documentary is called: "Citizen Lambert: Joan of Architecture"
link:
http://www.nfb.ca/collection/films/fiche/?id=54331

she is one of my heros.. here is her Wikipedia blurb:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phyllis_Lambert


2) Just got back from watching the 3D Journey to the Centre of the Earth,
which was excellent, despite my disappointment that it was not on the big IMAX screen. It turns out it must have been half filmed in Montreal, with the other half filmed in Iceland! :banana:

Thanks for the heads up TB, I'll add that to my list for viewing at Cinérobotheque. She's quite the woman and quite the Mies fan. She got him the big comission to build the Seagram HQ in NYC and I suspect Westmount Square and the buildings on Île des Soeurs here as well.

Next time you're down you should check out the CCA, it's a fantastic museum.

I just might do that, HFM. I knew there was a Mies building in Montreal, and actually think I saw it once. Is there more than one? The one I saw was a black office tower, I think. I think Phyllis Lambert is a goddess as she has done so much in helping a backwater Canada mature architecturally. I wish there were more Citizen Lamberts in this country.

Yes. WE have a few towers that were desgned by Mies. Most notably is Westmount Square which was conceived by Ludwig Mies Van der Rohe and was opened to the public in the late 1960s. It comprises residential and office high-rises with over 20 storeys, a terrace and an underground shopping concourse. The complex has 4 towers, 2 of which are residential towers.



There are alos a few other smaller project on Nun's Island, not to mention the famous Esso gas station, which was designed by Mies. Here's a little paragraph about this from Wikipedia.

The development of the island began in earnest in the late 1960s, and features four buildings attributed to Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, three high rise apartments, the first of which was occupied in 1969, and an Esso filling station of the same vintage. Nuns Island is one of Montreal's wealthiest communities.
here are some pics of that gas station.





and here's a picture of one of those towers on Nun's Island

Thanks, habs.... yes, that black office building is the one I saw. Very cool!

Is the gas station still there? I've never been to Nun's Island.
Yup, it's still there! Nun's island is a short 5 minute drive from Downtown. Just to give you an idea...in terms of distance from the downtown core, its the equivalent to Dupont street in Toronto(from the Downtown core).

Hey cool.. next time I go to Mtl I will rent a bike and maybe cruise over.
The problem is that Nun's Island is not very accessible using a bike or walking. You have to get onto the Bonaventure Expressway. Although, this will change within the next 3-5 years. They plan on converting the Bonaventure into an urban boulevard and access to Nun's Island will be made easier for pedestrians and cyclists!
