On May 27, the ByTowne’s proprietor Bruce White released some very good news, lightening the gloom of the pandemic’s third wave lockdown.
After the pandemic has been brought under control, he announced, new management will take over and the ByTowne will re-open. The new owners plan to continue the tradition of the ByTowne and operate an indie cinema that will offer international films, documentaries and Canadian movies.
Meanwhile, the theatre’s marquee is still open for business. A Sandy Hill resident commissioned the message shown above at the beginning of June, applauding the hardworking staff of the community health centre across the street.
