A large laminated glass circle, an allusion to the old Cinéma de Paris sign, will be installed above the main entrance to Le Diamant.

About four months from its projected completion date, the ambitious Le Diamant “black box” theatre space is more than 70 per cent built. That’s what project officials reported last week at a media event organized to unveil the design of a work of art to adorn the new structure which incorporates the facades of the former YMCA and Cinéma de Paris buildings in Place D’Youville.
