On Sunday, October 29, Café Atomic will host the fourth edition of Home Movie Day in Montreal. Organized by the Center for Home Movies and ARCMTL among other partners, this annual event showcases the overlooked and important contribution to popular history that amateur home movies provide. This year, all montrealers are invited to contribute their own home movies to the event, whose theme is Expo 67!

Being held on the 50th anniversary of Expo 67’s closing weekend, what better way to celebrate than to spend an evening watching the home movies that so well documented the experience !

A mix of 8mm and 16mm projections, slides and digitized montages will be shown, accompanied by the music of the era in the magnificent retro-design atmosphere of Café Atomic. If you’d like to contribute your own home movies about Expo 67 or Terre des Hommes, you can email us in advance and-or bring them to the event: .

16h – 19h : Projections, demonstrations, mingling.
19 – 20h : Presentation – discussion on the topic of the Expo 67 home movies being projected.
20h – 23h : Projections, 8mm – super 8mm – 16mm – digital.
