Thank You, Ottawa!


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.

The Bang Bang Club

It's not always black and white.

Poster art for The Bang Bang ClubThe Bang Bang Club asks important questions about photojournalism: Should a photographer try to stop something horrible from happening or just get that great shot? What are the implications of white shooters making hay from black struggles? And what emotional price do photographers in war zones pay? Silver’s hyperkinetic, tension-filled film about the titular group of journalists capturing the hostilities in 1994 South Africa for Johannesburg’s The Star is extremely vivid. It has a great cast – Ryan Phillippe keeps doing great work and check out the breakout performance by riveting Taylor Kitsch. Be sure you stay for the Club’s archival photos that run alongside the closing credits.
