dc.descriptionOutdoor mural on one of the older buildings, corner of Rue Sainte Catherine and Rue Dominique; The Quartier des spectacles covers an area of 1 km², encompassing eight public spaces with activities throughout the year, some 40 performance halls and bar venues with a collective seating capacity of more than 20,000, approximately 40 exhibition spaces and several cinemas. The eastern section of downtown Montreal, part of the district known as the Latin Quarter, was developed as a cultural hub and a venue for emerging and established artists. The area is defined by the Luminous Pathway, a shared sidewalk and architectural lighting and video projection scheme (projections of original works on nine buildings). In June 2012, it was reported by the Montreal Gazette that the cost of the district's public spaces alone would be $147 million, with $67 million from the city of Montreal and $40 million each from provincial and federal governments.
