The ByTowne is now closed.

It's possible that, after the pandemic has been brought under control,
new management will take over the space and offer big-screen wonderfulness again.

The building is being maintained, with all its facilities and equipment intact,
in preparation for that hoped-for day.

Inni

A visual and aural experience from SIGUR RÓS

 

Poster image for Inni, featuring Sigur RósThe soul-stirring fusion of joy and heartache that burns like a current through the music of Sigur Rós comes through loud and clear in Inni, the second concert film built around the massively popular Icelandic combo. Whereas 2007’s well-travelled Heima revelled in scenic color imagery of the artists’ homeland, this minimalist item strips the band down to its output, fashioning black-and-white performance footage into a uniquely spellbinding experience. 
 
Filmed during Sigur Rós’ November 2008 performances at London’s Alexandra Palace by French-Canadian filmmaker Vincent Morisset (who works extensively with Arcade Fire), Inni is shot in rough, high-contrast monochrome HD that almost encourages one to take the film in through closed eyes. Abstraction is the right approach for a group whose work is by turns soaring, bombastic, magisterial and unfathomable (the lyrics blur Icelandic with made-up tongue Hopelandic), ushering the listener into a state of near-celestial rapture.
