Technical descriptions

The Auditorium of BAnQ Vieux-Montréal is a small auditorium whose distinctive and non-traditionnal architecture sets it apart from other venues.

The absence of a raised stage and backstage area, the large windows behind the stage and the steep slope of the tiered seating area are very specific to this venue. For all these reasons, we suggest that clients and event organizers visit the venue before they prepare their event.

Room

Maximum number of seats
Parterre : 117
(fixed tiered seats)
Dimensions
From the proscenium to the last row of the parterre: 7.03 m (23 ft 1 in)
Width of the Auditorium: 13.69 m (45 ft 6 in)

Entrance for set and equipment

Street-level loading dock, with loading height fit for trucks and vans.
Enter the dock through Rue Labelle.
The loading dock is taller than the stage by 1.02 m (3 ft 4 in).
You have to go through a corridor measuring 45.72 m (about 150 ft) before reaching the stage.
The width of the narrowest point measures 1.52 m (5 ft) and the overhead clearance is of 3.05 m (10 ft), except at the doors, where it is of 2.44 m (8 ft).

Given the location of the loading dock in relation with the parterre and the stage, getting some hefty pieces of equipment or parts of the set through the doors could be challenging.
