La Petite Vie
From December 5, 2018 to April 7, 2019
La Petite Vie celebrates its 25th anniversary!
An opportunity to look back at the show’s wacky world
Know the crazy plot of each of La Petite Vie’s 59 episodes by heart? Were you a hard-core fan of Ti-Mé, Jacqueline, and their unusual tribe? To celebrate the 25th anniversary of this cult TV series, Pointe-à-Callière is inviting you into the Paré family home and giving you an opportunity to take a look back at their wacky world as part of an out-of-the-ordinary immersive experience.
Making your way through the eccentric apartment, you’ll get a chance to interact with characters, costumes, and objects from the show—like the famous family car with a television set on the hood—and get your photo taken in the renowned vertical bed!
You’ll also take part in various interactive activities. Have you always dreamed of being Popa or Moman… or of donning one of Creton’s outfits? Think you know all there is to know about the series? Well then, come test your knowledge at the Museum!
You’ll see several bloopers and never-before-seen videos from the show. Lastly, you’ll learn all about the origins of the series and take a look at its writing with series creator Claude Meunier.
Claude Meunier, writer of the cult series La Petite Vie, will be waiting to meet you at the Museum for a free autograph session on Sunday, March 17, 2019, from 1:30 pm to 2:30 pm. To learn more
A tribute to the creators, artisans, and actors
Executive Director Francine Lelièvre is delighted to have the Museum contribute to the renown of this television series, which is decidedly rooted in Québec’s popular culture. “In recreating the famous Paré family’s apartment in an entertaining and immersive setting, we first wanted to pay tribute to the creators, artisans, and actors who have kept it up all these years.”
Series creator and actor Claude Meunier expressed how happy he was to see the sets brought back to life at a site dedicated to the preservation and showcasing of Montréal heritage. “Together with Pointe-à-Callière, we wanted to take advantage of the 25th anniversary to give the gift of La Petite Vie to the show’s many fans. Whether they were with us in the studio or in front of their small screens, they played an important role in the success we enjoyed, and I am very grateful to them.”
We’re waiting for you! Hilarity and belly-laughs are guaranteed.
