The Verdun Auditorium is very much in demand for the Montréal filming of hockey-related movies and television shows, because of the arena’s unique locker room: the visitor’s locker room, commonly called “locker room No. 2” is the only one in Montréal with plywood partitions, giving the players their own space and their own little locker. Today, hockey players generally use locker rooms where this partition may be found only in the little locker and not in the player’s space. The locker room was therefore used for such Québec movies as Les Boys 4 and Pee-Wee 3D : L’hiver qui a changé ma vie.
