Journey to Space

What: How do astronauts do it? We know where they do it but like, how do they wash up at the end of shift? How do they get into and out of those bulky suits?

Embark on Journey to Space at the Montreal Science Center and learn all about the day-to-day lives of astronauts in a new interactive exhibition filled with experiences that are — you guessed it — out of this world.

When: Monday, March 9
Time: 9 am to 4 pm
Where: 
Montreal Science Center, Old Montreal

Atrium Le 1000

What: If the weather is too cold or snoowy today but you feel like hitting the ice, check out Atrium Le 1000, an indoor ice rink located inside Montreal’s tallest building.

The Atrium has a glass ceiling, perfect to be part of the weather without actually being part of it.

Plus, the skating rink plays music so you can glide to some tunes.

You can bring your own skates or rent equipment on site.

Time: 11:30 am to 9 pm
Where: 1000 Rue de la Gauchetière Ouest

Dollar Cinema

Dollar Cinema is an absolute gem of a find. They show second-run movies at a two-screen venue (only in English). It’s great for a date or for people who want to watch a relatively new movie on the big screen instead of Netflix. They’re currently highlighted by The Good Liar, The Assistant, Just Mercy, Spies in Disguise, Like A Boss, Joker, and Frozen II to name a few, but check out the website for complete listing.

Oh yeah, snacks are $1.

When: Monday, March 9
Time: Varies per selection
Where: 6900 Boulevard Decarie, Côte Saint-Luc
Price: $2.50 general admission
