After many ups and downs and a ten-month closure, Ottawa’s beloved Bytowne Cinema will make it’s return this month. Former owner, Bruce White, had announced he was selling it to new owners earlier in the year. He said they would continue to screen indie movies, documentaries and international and Canadian films.
Speaking of, the upcoming screenings have a lot to offer. Oscar winners Nomadland, Minari and The Father will all screen. As well, classic international favourites, In the Mood for Love and Chungking Express are on the list of what’s playing. Meanwhile, Indigenous director, Tracey Deer’s impeccable film, Beans, about the Oka Crisis, will screen, too.
Bytowne Cinema opens back up September 8th. Check out the full list of What’s Playing here.
