The Murder of Regina George – Murder Mystery Game

An interactive murder-mystery game is coming to The Diving Bell Social Club tonight as guests become a part of a team of investigators whose mission is to discover a killer by finding clues and interrogating witnesses.

Anyone who comes dressed as a character from a teen film (in honour of the game’s main character from Mean Girls) will be given “addition perks” during the game.

When: Wednesday, September 4
Time: 8 pm – 11 pm
Where: The Diving Bell Social Club, 3956 Boulevard St-Laurent

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.

The dive theatre is currently highlighted by Crawl, Rocketman, The Art of Self-Defence, John Wick Chapter 3, The Dead Don’t Die, Avengers: Endgame, Pokémon: Detective Pikachu, and Wonder Park to name a few, but check out the website for complete listings.

The theatre is also showing the 1978 classic, Grease, on the big screen.

Oh yeah, snacks are $1.

When: Wednesday, September 4
Time: Varies per selection
Where: 6900 Boulevard Decarie, Côte Saint-Luc
Price: $2.50 general admission

HUM(AIN) – We Could Be Human: A Learning Machine

It seems like Siri has some SIRIous competition as a new art exhibition in Montreal features an AI robot that learns from visitors the more it interacts with them.

As part of musician David Usher’s Hum(ai)n exhibition, a digital character named Ophelia will be speaking with humans all summer. This interaction will help to evolve her cognitive state.

When: From now until September 15
Time: 10 am – 8 pm
Where: Phi Centre, 407 Saint-Pierre
Price:$21.97 – $25.50, available online

McKibbin’s Irish Pub hosts their ‘Hooley Night’ tonight on the third floor.
