Canada/Montreal, Montreal Forum!
Montreal Forum (Le Forum de Montréal), the most storied building in hockey history, was an indoor arena located facing Cabot Square. It was the home of the Montreal Canadiens - HABS - from 1926 to 1996. The club's official name is le Club de hockey Canadien. The Forum was built in 159 days. Located at the northeast corner of Atwater and Ste-Catherine West, the building was historically significant as it was home to 24 Stanley Cup championships (22 of the Canadiens and two of the Montreal Maroons, for whom the arena was originally built). 
It was then completely gutted and converted into a downtown entertainment center called the Pepsi Forum, consisting of an AMC Theatres multiplex theater (now Cineplex Odeon), shops and restaurants. Center ice has been recreated in the center of the complex complete with a small section of the grandstand, along with a statue of a fan leaning forward in delight, while original seats are used as benches throughout the complex.
