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.

(Compulsive Liar)

Poster for the Quebec comedy Menteur (Serial Liar)La quatrième comédie d’Émile Gaudreault avec Louis-José Houde propose du plaisir décuplé… par une nouvelle dimension. Effets spéciaux en sus. Le récit s’appuie sur une théorie aussi loufoque que séduisante. Menteur compulsif, Simon (Houde) ne se rend pas compte du mal qu’il fait à ses proches, en premier lieu à son jumeau Phil (Antoine Bertrand). Une fois Simon puni par des forces supérieures, ses mensonges deviennent réalité et provoquent un chaos parfois gênant, parfois drôle.

Simon (Louis-José Houde) is an aviation executive who lies about everything: the reasons he’s late, the reasons women should sleep with him, the fact that his parents used to beat him, the fact that his sister-in-law is in love with him. Simon’s self-serving lies are so abundant that the universe (governed by a handful of Buddhist monks, it seems) decides to teach him a lesson by making all of his lies reality. 

A high-concept comedy from Quebec that’s partially about sponsorship scandals and the looming threat of a plant closure…Director Emile Gaudreault (a former sketch comedian) takes the business of being funny very seriously.
