Lights, camera, history!

Depending on the nature and time of year of your proposed filming project, Sainte-Marie among the Hurons may be an option. While we are busy serving general public visitors and groups throughout the day during our operating season, we may have some availability for film groups outside of our regular operating dates and hours where Sainte-Marie among the Hurons can provide the perfect setting.
During the late fall, winter and early spring select site locations and buildings may meet your filming needs. Opportunities may also exist during the operating season daily before 10:00 a.m. and after 5:00 p.m.

In addition to providing craft services for film groups (large or small), Restaurant Sainte-Marie can also be utilized as a location for base camp, make-up, wardrobe, or as a movie set. Based on your requirements, our restaurant operator can develop a customized package of services and costs to meet your needs. Please note there may be charges in addition to the regular restaurant Facility Rental base rates, as extra staffing, security, restaurant set-up or specialized room amenities may be required to meet filming needs. Contact the restaurant directly to discuss your requirements.
