Because I’ll be on vacation in July, I’m recommending a whole month’s worth of films at the ByTowne and the Mayfair. As usual, the ByTowne has published its entire schedule for the month, but I’m in the dark about most of Mayfair’s July offerings. Nevertheless, both offer a wide variety, including a slew of classics at the ByTowne and a bunch of new films.
From body horror to Inuit horror, and a lot of classic films in between, here are Barbara’s picks for the must-see films at the Mayfair and ByTowne.
It’s a busy June of movies, ranging from classic Cronenberg body-horror to romances from Ryûsuke Hamaguchi, a very early documentary film, and yes, everyone’s new favourite Batman film.
Lots of variety the next two weeks at the ByTowne and the Mayfair. My favourite film from 2021 continues its run, there are films from acknowledged masters and up-and-comers, and a big basket of free European short films. Rounding everything out are two exciting classics.
A jam-packed two weeks at the ByTowne and the Mayfair! My favourite film from 2021 has finally come to Ottawa, as well as some award winners, interesting films that fly under the radar, and the last movie in a Ukrainian Film Festival whose net proceeds will go to a Ukraine charity. Rounding everything out are three classics.
Plenty is happening at the ByTowne and the Mayfair: award-winners and films that fly “under the radar,” two free films to celebrate Canadian Film Day, and a Ukrainian Film Festival whose net proceeds will go to the National Bank of Ukraine’s Fundraising Account for Humanitarian Assistance to Ukrainians. Plus, a couple of famous classics on May 1.

The Academy Awards on March 27 were… interesting. If you ignore the drama in LA’s Dolby Auditorium and focus on the drama in the films, you can catch many of the nominees and winners at Ottawa’s two independent cinemas, the ByTowne and the Mayfair.
