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.

Must-See Cinema! Celebrate the 100th anniversary of Kurosawa’s birth!

Yojimbo, original Japanese poster artMet at the entrance to a seemingly deserted village by a stray mutt sauntering past with a severed hand in his jaws, grubby unemployed samurai Toshirô Mifune, after a suitable double take, realizes a skilled yojimbo (bodyguard) could rake in a few ryo in this town. And after checking out the sake merchant’s thugs squaring off against the silk merchant’s goon squad, he hires out to both sides. Venice Festival acting prize to Mifune, with Tatsuya Nakadai as the pistol-waving killer.
