This picture was taken during the Montreal Lumiere Festival from inside the Place des Arts complex, wich "is Canada's most unique cultural complex. It is comprised of five prestigious and multifaceted halls, Salle Wilfrid-Pelletier, Théâtre Maisonneuve, Théâtre Jean-Duceppe, the Studio-théâtre and the Cinquième salle each with its own distinct technical characteristics, and all interconnected by an underground network of corridors and passageways. In all, the complex occupies a total area of over 100,000 square metres on what is commonly known as the Place des Arts plaza. The complex also houses a number of rehearsal halls, a three-level underground parking garage, extensive warehousing facilities, the busiest box office in Quebec, a café-bistro and resto-bar, various gift and souvenir boutiques, a cultural information centre, as well as the Musée d'art contemporain de Montréal. And, Place des Arts' esplanade is a veritable open-air oasis in the heart of the big city, providing the perfect backdrop for countless outdoor shows and celebrated festivals."
