Murder...At The CIRCUS

Ottawa premiere of a very local film! Pay What You Can Admission!

"A unique emphasis on the artistic and the fantastic."

– Eddie Spuhghetti, Horror/Retro Host

Title graphic (??) for Murder... At The CIRCUS!Murder... At The CIRCUS! is a locally made short film which harkens back to the era of silent film with an experimental approach, evoking early David Lynch in a Guy Maddin universe on an Ed Wood budget.

A tale of the macabre, Murder... At The CIRCUS! employs clever theatrical stage tricks to tell a mysterious story about a travelling Big Top show and the people behind the scenes. Starring and created by past and present ByTowne staffers, Murder... was filmed, in part, at the ByTowne Cinema between 2011 and 2012.

Admission: Pay what you can.
