Place des Arts
It's a large complex with multiple performance venues. Not very attractive from the outside but nice inside. Signage is practically non existent. We only found our theater because we followed the crowd. It would have been much more difficult had the other venues had shows that evening. We would not have known which crowd to follow. The Salle Wilfrid-Pelletier lobby was spacious. It offered a lot of seating and multiple bars with multiple drink choices. Nothing like the limited choices at theater bars in the states.
The theater itself is huge with no decor, stark, straight from 1963. I would never want to be sitting in the top balcony it looked like it was a mile away from the stage. The main floor seating has NO CENTER AISLE. Seats 1 and 2 are in the center of the row of seats and the numbers radiate out from there. Horrible layout, anyone with a low numbered seat has to crawl over everyone in higher numbered seats. I guess if you know this in advance you can choose your seats accordingly. I would not want to be in seats 1-10 if there was ever a need to evacuate the theater.
