Google's machine translation is a useful starting point for translations, but translators must revise errors as necessary and confirm that the translation is accurate, rather than simply copy-pasting machine-translated text into the English Wikipedia.
Do not translate text that appears unreliable or low-quality. If possible, verify the text with references provided in the foreign-language article.
A movie theatre built in 1915, the Théâtre Saint-Denis' mission changed in the 1980s and has since focused exclusively on performing arts. It hosts musicals, plays, music concerts and numerous stand up comedy shows during the Just for Laughs festival.
The theatre contains two halls, Théâtre St-Denis 1 and Théâtre St-Denis 2. Théâtre St-Denis 1 has 2,218 seats (1,328 on the floor, and 890 on the balcony) and Théâtre St-Denis 2 has 933 seats (665 on the floor, and 268 on the balcony).
On May 10, 2016, the borough of Ville Marie announced that the theatre would be renovated with a new facade that will expose more of historic theatre design.
