Montreal Mall Complexe Desjardins installed and operating Smart Tint Grey film as a projection screen in Canada

Montréal en Histoires has achieved an impressive feat with this installation, blending it perfectly into the architecture and interior design of the commercial building. At 46 feet high and 60 feet wide, the glass window onto which the tableau is projected is covered with a film that uses an electric current to render it opaque for the projection.

Visitors can listen to the accompanying audio in four languages (English, French, Spanish and Mandarin), and in two different ways: using a free mobile app or by standing in two specially designated listening areas on site (in French) 

The presentation is 8 minutes long and will be played twice an hour, every day, after dark.

Cité Mémoire comes to Complexe Desjardins

Montréal en Histoires and Desjardins have unveiled a multimedia tableau that will be projected inside Complexe Desjardins. Entitled Dorimène et Alphonse, this piece was created by Michel Lemieux and features a text written by Michel Marc Bouchard. It marks the 24th stop on the permanent Cité Mémoire circuit.

Visitors will be immersed in the life of this 20th century couple who worked together to create a successful savings and loan cooperative, the first of its kind in North America.

Montréal en Histoires has three main areas of focus: producing Cité Mémoire, a large-scale project by Michel Lemieux and Victor Pilon with the collaboration of Michel Marc Bouchard, creating historical circuits that use cutting-edge technology, and establishing an educational platform on the history of Montreal. It has also developed a free mobile app that allows users to get the most out of the experience.

The collaboration between Michel Marc Bouchard, Michel Lemieux and Montréal en Histoires continues. In addition to the 23 multimedia tables of Cité Mémoire already punctuating the city, is added Alphonse and Dorimène, dedicated to the couple at the origin of the Desjardins Movement. 

The projection, which unfolds on two giant screens in the heart of the Complexe Desjardins, emphasizes personal life, conjugal bonding and the values of the Quebec pioneer and pioneer of finance.
