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.

The King's Speech

Winner of four Academy Awards: Best Picture, Best Actor, Best Director, and Best Original Screenplay!

Poster art for The King's SpeechThe King’s Speech  turns the relationship between the stammering prince who would become George VI (Colin Firth) and his expat Australian speech trainer (Geoffrey Rush) into a charming little period piece.

The production assembles the tried-and-tested Oscar-baiting elements of big stars, crippling personal issues and regal pomp, as previously seen in Mrs. Brown and The Queen - with the added bonus of a war with Hitler looming in the background. But director Hooper uses inventive staging and surprising visual choices to goose the straightforward material, much as he did in last year’s The Damned United. He also brings out the best in Firth, Rush and co-star Helena Bonham Carter.
