Montreal Forum Entertainment Complex
1997-2001/Montréal (Québec)/55,000 m2/592,000 ft2
Reconstruction of all electromechanical systems based on new developments in Montreal’s Forum entertainment centre, the largest of its kind in Canada and the former Forum (Montreal Canadiens hockey centre). The building now includes AMC’s 22 movie theatres (between 125 and 650 seats each, for a total of 4300 seats), which occupy 45 % of the area, and Jillian's, which offers significant space devoted restaurants and entertainment. The complex also houses a branch of SAQ’s Art de vivre and a climbing wall. The center of the building turned into a huge atrium that is surrounded by restaurants and shops whose theme revolves around the world of cinema and hockey.
