The new Circuit Beaumont cinema, located on the premises of the Méduse cooperative, opens its doors on February 3rd with the cult film Polyester by John Waters.
The feature film will be presented in its Quebec dubbed version and, as in the past, with scented scratch cards for viewers to share. Maps that sometimes allow total immersion.
Polyester tells the story of a suburban housewife who sees her world fall apart when she discovers her husband is unfaithful. It will air on February 3 at 8 p.m.
We will also find Geographies of Solitude for the first month of programming for this 44-slot room on February 9th. The film by Jacquelyn Mills was awarded the Ecumenical Jury Prize at the Berlinale 2022.

No Bear, Special Jury Prize in Venice 2022, directed by Iranian director Jahar Panahi, will be released on February 10th, followed by Rojek by Turkish filmmaker Zaynê Akyol on February 16th.
Beau travail by Claire Denis will be presented on February 17th, Mistral Spatial by Marc-Antoine Lemire on February 23rd and This house by Myriam Charles on February 24th will round off this first month of programming. Quebec directors Marc-Antoine Lemire and Myriam Charles will accompany their films.
“Above all, the quality of the works motivates our decisions, we will be bold and surprising, recognizing both the rich history of cinema and its essential contemporary proposals,” said program director Jason Béliveau in a press release.
Tickets priced at $12 are available on the Antitube website. A fundraiser will be launched shortly to finance the final phase of the work, which will be completed by the end of 2023 and will expand the Côte d’Abraham room to seat 77 people.
The February program is online on the Circuit Beaumont Facebook page and on antitube.ca.
