A hub of artistic and cultural effervescence, the Phi Centre rents out its rooms for events of all kinds including presentations, cocktail parties, fundraisers, and business meetings. Fully restored and modernized, our heritage building is located in the heart of Old Montreal, close to downtown.
All facilities are flexible-format, inter-connected, and equipped with state-of-the-art audio-visual equipment. The Phi Centre also offers access to its immersive exhibition Particles of Existence, its boutique and installations. Our event coordinators are committed to meeting the needs of clients and creating unique and memorable experiences for guests.
When not used for screening films, our movie theatre has everything needed for general meetings or presentations of all kinds. Its 86 bleacher seats are retractable, so the room can be configured for dinners, cocktail parties, and gala events. Space B is our most multi-functional room.
Our gallery is at your disposal in the evening for cocktail parties, launches, or networking activities. Our exhibitions are constantly changing, and our permanent installations devoted to Canadian short films and virtual reality are available to you free of charge. These exhibits make great ice breakers and conversation pieces.
With a private entrance on Saint-Paul Street, Espace Plateau creates an intimate setting. Hidden (or not) behind collapsible walls is a fully-equipped kitchen that facilitates the holding of gourmet dinners and cocktail buffets. This room is particularly well suited for launches, small planning meetings, and team building events.

For event organizers who wish to make nearby housing accommodations available to their guests of honor, the Phi Centre has lofts available just across the street.
