The Paramount Montreal is located inside the historic former Simpsons building at the corner of Ste. Catherine West and Metcalfe Street. Occupying a full six floors, its ultramodern design incorporates the architecture of this turn-of-the-century structure. In contrast to the existing facade, the design creates a sense of lightness and transparency.
The exterior signage is inspired by Art Deco. Programmed special lighting and fibre optics create various visual effects including the movement of film. The urban Art Deco theme is continued in the interior design’s variety of colours and textures. Large fibreglass panels suspended in open spaces serve as projection screens and add to the interiorï¿½s sense of transparency. The design is versatile, so that theming can be changed quickly and easily to accommodate different tastes or to respond to various clienteles and special events.
Four dazzlingly lit escalators lead to two main lobbies, 12 auditoriums, a Famous Players IMAX® theater and other attractions including the Bar des Étoiles and Café des Étoiles which serves specialty sandwiches, salads and desserts. Paramount Montreal also has a TechTown Interactive Gaming Centre and two party rooms.
Paramount Montreal also is among the continent’s most successful and popular theaters. In April 2007, it was renamed Cinema Banque Scotia.
