We’ve added a new feature to our web site: a map linking to histories of about 30 important sites in the neighbourhood. Click on a pin on the map to discover the backstory of these places that have contributed to the identity of Mile End.
The launch will take place at one of the sites included on our map, the Rialto Theatre. The event will begin with a presentation of the building’s history by architect Nathalie Tremblay, followed by a tour in the presence of owner Ezio Carosielli, responsible for the outstanding restoration of the theatre.
Thursday 1 December 2016, starting at 5 pm
5711 avenue du Parc
There will be a cash bar, and snacks provide free of charge.
