Excentris was a performing arts center and cinema located on Saint-Laurent Boulevard in Montreal, Quebec. The complex was conceived by Daniel Langlois as a laboratory for digital media production as well as a screening venue. It was opened in June 1999, after 2 years of construction, and covered 70,000 square feet (6,500 m2).

Excentris ran into financial difficulty in 2009 and was forced to shut down two of its three cinemas. However, it was revived as a three-screen complex in 2011, with the help of a $4 million loan from Quebec provincial film funding agency SODEC.[1]

The centre closed its doors on November 2015, citing financial difficulties. Cinéma Parallèle, the non-profit organization that ran the center, fell under bankruptcy protection in May 2015. [2][3]
