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.

KONELĪNE: Our Land Beautiful

Benefit for the 27th annual One World Film Festival. All seats $12.

Poster for the documentary KonelineNettie Wild’s astonishing, masterfully shot documentary and recent winner of the best Canadian Feature prize at Hot Docs takes its title from the Tahltan First Nation word that can mean both the land and the mind are beautiful. Wild stays true to that poetic purity in exploring the stunningly visual story of life in Northwestern British Columbia, juxtaposed with changes forced by progress and ramped-up copper and gold mining.

Equal parts sigh, song and cry, the film shows restraint in stepping out of the way to let people – from tribal elders to a wilderness hunting guide and miners – tell their stories, without passing judgment.

– Linda Barnard, Toronto Star
