Tickets are now on sale for the ByTowne's biggest annual event. The Best Of The Banff Mountain Film Festival is an awesome collection of award-winning short films about, well, mountains: climbing up them, skiing and boarding down them, kayaking their white water, hiking and biking in mountain countryside, and more!
Shows are January 12, 13 & 14 this year. All three shows last year sold out, so get your tickets now!

When we printed the Nov./Dec. ByTowne Guide, we marked some screenings "To Be Announced" in the week of December 26th to January 1st.
We're now pleased to announce that we'll be playing the much-anticipated WWII drama The Imitation Game that week (and continuing to January 11th).
The Imitation Game stars Benedict Cumberbatch as unsung war hero Alan Turing, who headed up the team of cryptographers tasked with breaking the Nazis' infamous Enigma code.

The ByTowne doesn't have a parking lot of its own, but denizens of downtown can usually find street parking in Lowertown or Sandy Hill neighbourhoods fairly easily.
If you're not keen to troll for a parking space, or if you're running late, we recommend the parking garage at Loblaws. It's covered, heated and safe – and just half a block from the cinema. The best part: they charge just $3 flat rate after 6pm, and all day on Saturdays & Sundays.
One favour, though: to keep the spaces near the doors available for grocery shoppers, Loblaws asks that you park on Level 2 (blue markings on pillars) if you're staying for more than 2 hours.
