Rain over Old Montreal
If you’re looking for some cheap Tuesday escapism, we recommend Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation and Ant-ManVacation, Pixels and Ricki and the Flash, not so much.

It’s the opening day of Sensory Stories, an exhibit of works by 16 artists that “playfully…redefine the way we experience narrative” while putting all the senses to work. The exhibit is on at the Phi Centre (via the side entrance) till Sept. 27. 325 St-Paul W., 11 a.m.6 p.m., free
