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.

This Is Spinal Tap

Must-See Cinema! More spectacular than Stonehenge!

Poster for This Is Spinal TapI expect most of you reading this have had the Spinal Tap experience at one time or another. But just in case, here goes with the plot: England’s legendary heavy metal group Spinal Tap (formerly the Thamesmen, formerly the Originals, formerly the New Originals) formed in London’s Squatney section in the early ’60s. Deluded, pompous but punctual frontmen David St. Hubbins (Michael McKean) and Nigel Tufnel (Christopher Guest) survived many incarnations – and many more doomed drummers – over the next 20 years. Now they’re embarking on a ‘comeback’ tour of America with the third corner of their musical triangle, bass player Derek Smalls (Harry Shearer, voice of both Burns and Smithers on The Simpsons).

The tour does not go well. Dates are cancelled. Venues are not quite as advertised. Luncheon meats do not fold as they should. Tempers rise. Members storm off. And hilarity rules.
