Montreal Movies

Mary Queen of the World Cathedral, Montreal, Canada

Even in Francophone Quebec, Montreal stands out as decidedly European. That’s why so many film productions head to the Canadian city, using it as a stand-in for everything from Moscow to Paris. The folks over at the Metro just did a round-up of the Canadian city’s on-screen cameos including blockbuster flicks like ‘The Curious Case of Benjamin Button’ and ‘The ... Read More »

While the athletes and tourists will be treated to the high life during the 2016 games, the 2002 film shows another side of the city, the ... Read More »

RomanPolanskiRollingStone

Roman Polanski may not be going anywhere for a while, now that (allegedly?) raping a 13-year-old has finally caught up with him and all. He may be holed up in a Swiss jail, but his films provide a trip around the world. Even after his exile from the United States in 1977, the director continued to shoot on location throughout Europe ... Read More »

It’s our favorite season here at Museyon HQ, and what better way to celebrate than with one of the season’s best — ‘Autumn in New York‘. The film may be a May-December love story between a playboy restaurant owner (Richard Gere) ... Read More »

‘The Hangover’ Guide to Vegas

Little White Chapel

Let’s get the weekend started early with a hangover. ‘The Hangover,’ to be exact. We love the comedy smash about a bachelor party gone wrong and lost weekend in Vegas, starring Justin Bartha as an eager groom-to-be and Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms and Zach Galifianakis as his bumbling groomsmen. So if you’re feeling lucky, let’s head to the strip, just be ... Read More »
