The large dome-shaped structure outside the Palais Montcalm, sponsored by the Charlevoix Casino, was a popular gathering spot for festival-goers.

The first weekend of the Festival de cinéma de la Ville de Québec kicked off last Friday night at the opulent Palais Montcalm. The Québécois film L'autre maison, a story of two very different brothers who take care of their father stricken with Alzheimer's disease, was followed by Don Jon - a boisterous American sex comedy.
