ByTowne Theatre

Viewing: Photo | Street View

The 770-seat (originally 940 seat) Bytowne Cinema opened as the Nelson Cinema back in 1947.

The Nelson Cinema had a successful forty year run, and the theater closed in 1987. It was taken over by the independent operators who had operated the Towne Cinema after its lease had expire. It was renovated and reopened in June 1989 as the ByTowne Cinema.

Today, the ByTowne Cinema is Ottawa’s premier venue for first run art, independent, and foreign films.
