Aperçu

Join the Ten Oaks Project for a screening of The Miseducation of Cameron Post, winner of the Grand Jury Prize at the 2018 Sundance Film Festival. This event is a fundraiser, and all proceeds from ticket sales go directly to the Ten Oaks Project's camp programs for the children and youth of 2SLGBTQ+ identities, families, and communities!

"Based on the celebrated novel by Emily M. Danforth, The Miseducation of Cameron Post follows Cameron (Chloë Grace Moretz) as she is sent to a gay conversion therapy center after getting caught with another girl in the back seat of a car on prom night. Run by the strict and severe Dr. Lydia Marsh (Jennifer Ehle) and her brother, Reverend Rick (John Gallagher Jr.) — himself an example of how those in the program can be “cured” — the center is built upon repenting for “same sex attraction.” In the face of intolerance and denial, Cameron meets a group of fellow sinners including the amputee stoner Jane (Sasha Lane), and her friend, the Lakota Two-Spirit, Adam (Forrest Goodluck). Together, this group of teenagers form an unlikely family as they fight to survive." (https://campostfilm.com)

Tickets

Tickets are $12/person and can be purchased online in advance and a tax receipt will automatically be emailed to you. They will also be available at the door (cash only - there is an ATM in the lobby - and tax receipts will not be issued) if they do not sell out ahead of time.

Accessibility

The ByTowne auditorium and washrooms are fully accessible for patrons in wheelchairs. Both washrooms (which will be all-gender for this event!) have accessible stalls, but there is no automated door opener for either, and the door on one bathroom is the old 30" standard width. When you first arrive, ask an usher for the locations of the wheelchair ‘parking’ spots. There are several different locations you can choose from.

For hard-of-hearing patrons, the ByTowne has an FM Audio Assist system. Receivers are available free of charge from the candy bar staff. The receiver clips on your belt or waistband and relays the sound to your ears via an earphone (you can use the one supplied, or for a better fit, bring your own earbuds; anything with a standard 3.5mm mini stereo plug will work). Patrons who have a hearing aid equipped with a T-coil should ask us for an induction loop (it fits easily around your neck) that sends the sound to your hearing aid.

Getting to the Bytowne

Check out the Bytown Cinema's website for information on getting to the theatre by car or public transit, and for nearby parking options.
