About this Event

Women of Architecture | Capital Region (WOA!) and the Ottawa chapter of the Ontario Association of Landscape Architects (OALA) are proud to present the premier of City Dreamers at the ByTowne Cinema on September 11.

The film follows, "Phyllis Lambert, Blanche Lemco van Ginkel, Cornelia Hahn Oberlander, Denise Scott Brown – ​four trailblazers who became accustomed to being the only woman in the room. Each has an extensive list of accomplishments in architecture, planning and landscape architecture dating back 60+ years and has taught, mentored and inspired generations of professionals."~ City Dreamers

Prior to the movie, guests are invited to a pre-film social hosted at Rebel to relax after work and mingle with local professionals. Food and refreshments will be provided.

FAQs

1. Where can I pick up my ticket once purchased from Eventbrite?

Pre-purchased tickets can be obtained from a WOA! or LAO member at the pre-film social event at Rebel or at regular ByTowne Cinema box office.

2. If I am a ByTowne Member, can I purchase my ticket at this member's rate?

Yes, of course, but you will have to purchase your ticket at the ByTowne Cinema box office.

3. Can I purchase a movie ticket at the Pre-Film Social?

Yes, tickets will be available for CASH purchase at the Social, or at the Cinema.

4. How can I get to this area of town?

Well you have some options, as outlined by the ByTowne Cinema:

Transit: Four OC Transpo routes (routes 7, 12, 14 & 18) cruise frequently along Rideau St. and stop within steps of the ByTowne. And you can transfer to any of those routes at the Rideau Centre. If you get downtown via the Transitway, get off at the Rideau Centre stop and walk through the shopping mall to get to the Rideau St. routes.

Walking And Biking: Always the most inexpensive and eco-friendly way to get here, bikes and "boot leather express" work great. There are lots of bike racks along Rideau, too!

Free Parking: If you've arrived in good time, try for free street parking! After 6 pm, metered spots on Rideau are free (Sundays, too). And there’s lots of on-street parking on Besserer and Nelson.

Pay For Parking: Try any of the lots marked on the map. Our favourite is the covered parking garage at Loblaws, which is accessed from Nelson St., less than a block north of Rideau. It's well lit, clean and safe, and the prices are reasonable.

The flat rate at Loblaw's garage is just $4 after 6:00 pm, and all day Saturdays and Sundays. But note that you'll be 'on the clock' if you attend a weekday afternoon movie, and the price per hour can add up. There's a terrific workaround for that, though. If you shop at Loblaw's before or after the movie, the first two hours of your parking are FREE. For most films of ordinary length, that means you'll spend only about an hour or so at the hourly rate and you'll get some of your weekly shopping done, too!
