The lights will come on again!


The ByTowne is now closed. But there's good news!

After the pandemic has been brought under control,
new management will take over the space and the ByTowne will re-open.

It may take a while for pandemic restrictions to be eased enough
that a feasible number of patrons can be allowed to watch a movie again,
but the new owners are working towards that day.

Kayak To Klemtu

When Dave Ellis (Evan Adams), a prominent Kitasoo/Xai’Xais activist, passes away, his 14-year-old niece Ella (newcomer Ta’Kaiya Blaney) makes it her mission to take his ashes home to Klemtu. While there, she also plans to stand in his place at a community gathering against a proposed pipeline that would bring oil tankers through their beloved homeland waters.

Poster for the indigenous coming-of-age drama Kayak To KlemtuArmed with her determination and youthful spirit, Ella embarks on the kayak journey through British Columbia’s Inside Passage, along the beautiful shores of the Great Bear Rainforest. Along for the trip are her aunt, cousin, and cranky uncle Don (Lorne Cardinal). It’s a race against the clock, as the four paddle to make it in time for Ella to give the speech of her, and her community’s, life.

Writer-director Zoe Hopkins’s first feature film is a delightful adventure that speaks to our heart and minds about the importance of protecting our lands for the generations to come.
