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.

This Changes Everything

Narrated and inspired by the book by Naomi Klein

Poster art for This Changes EverythingDirected by Avi Lewis and produced in conjunction with Naomi Klein's best-selling book of the same name, This Changes Everything is an urgent dispatch on climate change that explores how our violent disregard for our planet has endangered both it and ourselves, and how resisting this abuse and opposing the forces that propagate it can have a profound – even revolutionary – impact upon the makeup of our society.

With Klein serving as narrator and guide, the film examines several individual cases worldwide – from ranchers in Montana dealing with floods and an oil spill, to grandmothers in Greece protesting the arrival of a Canadian gold-processing complex, from fishermen in India rejecting a coal-fired power plant to migrant workers in Fort McMurray drowning their sorrows – to show both the ravages of unchecked capitalist ‘development’ and some of the grassroots initiatives that have begun to combat them. Filmed on several continents over a period of three years, This Changes Everything argues that the greatest crisis we have ever faced also offers us the opportunity to address and correct the inhumane systems that have created it.
