Experience the birth of Montreal and Notre-Dame Basilica in the most astounding sound and light show in town.

Amazing light on our heritage

This magnificent show uses today’s most advanced multimedia techniques to (literally) highlight the Basilica’s historical, cultural and architectural legacy...and its many outstanding works of art.

“And Then There Was Light” represents the work of 150 artists and skilled technicians. During the show 26 silent motors move the screens, projectors and curtains in this superb, highly automated production.

Out of sight, out of mind...

Despite the vast technical resources the show requires, after each presentation all physical features, including the giant 18 x 21 metre (59 x 69 ft.) main screen, disappear from view...until next time...
