Van Morrison likes Montreal, and played there in one of the theatres on Saint Catherine way back when.
“I first saw Van Morrison in the late 60’s at the Capitol Theatre on Ste-Catherine Street. He performed two shows that evening – and he was in full flight by the time the second show was underway.” I’m in conversation with Rubin Fogel, a lifelong fan of Van Morrison’s music, and the promoter for Morrison’s October 1st performance at Salle Wilfred Pelletier in Place des Arts.

We already have a post on the site way back re: Montreal Movie Theatres,including old pics of most of them,including the Savoy of course.but in today;s Gazette is a short article on the old Imperial ,it is still around today being used as an art festival or something. Man we had some cool old buildings in our day,too bad they were not all saved. The following is the article from todays Gazette.
The Imperial Cinema is one of Montreal’s last surviving movie palaces.
