June 22 kicked off another season of The Image Mill, the free, hourlong multimedia presentation on the harborfront grain silos in Quebec City. Created by Robert Lepage and Ex Machina, the presentation is the largest projection ever made, measuring roughly 650 yards wide by 32 yards high. It brings to life Quebec City's history and heritage, zipping through hundreds of years with engaging -- at times mind-boggling -- images accompanied by sound. It can be seen Tuesday through Saturday beginning at 10 p.m. through July 31; beginning at 9:30 p.m. through Aug.; then at 9 p.m. Sept. 1-6. Later dates and times have yet to be confirmed. Best viewing is from the docks between the Old Port Market, Dalhousie Street, and Quay Saint-André Street. It's outdoors, so dress for the weather.
