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.

Those Who Remained

(Akik maradtak)

Part of our Spotlight on the cinema of Hungary

Barnabás Tóth intimate drama is a tribute to survivors of the Holocaust, and a most unusual love story.

Budapest, 1948: Aldo is a grim but kindly doctor, living a widower’s life and doing his best not to think about the past. One fateful day, a woman brings in her teenaged niece for examination: Klára is an angry misanthrope who scorns authority, but she’s nonetheless smitten with this much older man. Aldo becomes her tutor, friend, and father figure, but their relationship is a dangerous one, likely to be misunderstood by gossiping neighbours and Soviet authorities alike.

Károly Hajduk is superb as the downtrodden doctor, and Szőke imbues her teen rebel with a true radiance. Serious and often sad, yet also attuned to the joys of life, this is lovely film was shortlisted for the Academy Award for Best International Film of 2019.
