FNC drive-in airport

The Shining, Mad Max Fury Road

Drive-in movies at YUL airport as part of Festival du Nouveau Cinéma 2020

Four nights of classic films at FNC x YUL.

The Festival du Nouveau Cinéma announced today that along with screening films at the Imperial Cinema, with limited audiences to abide by distancing rules, the 49th edition of the Montreal festival will use the P11 parking lot at Pierre Elliot Trudeau Airport as a drive-in theatre.

The four presentations taking place at “FNC x YUL” are Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining (for its 40th anniversary), all four Mad Max films by George Miller, from 1979 to 2015 (in one night!), Paul Verhoeven’s Total Recall (for its 30th anniversary) and Pink Floyd: The Wall by Alan Parker (RIP).
