Movies, dining and things to do / Spokane and North Idaho

Still time to get your Hitchcock tickets

It's still not too late to get a ticket to the SPR Goes to the Movies event, which will be held tonight at the Bing Crosby Theater. The place has some 750 seats, so little possibility exists that it will sell out. The doors are supposed to open at 6, which should give everyone a good chance to get liquored up (assuming that's the kind of thing you do, and it's certainly the kind of thing that Roger Thornhill would do).

As you can see from the schedule, we'll start a live taping of a special edition of "Movies 101" at 6:30. Following that, Leonard Oakland will give a little intro to the evening's main feature, Alfred Hitchcock's 1959 feature "North by Northwest," and then the feature will screen at about 7:30. (Roger Thornhill, by the way, is the character Cary Grant plays in the film.)

All for just $10, which goes to help sponsor the station. Not a bad deal, when you think about it.
