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

Watch, then talk about, ‘Hannah Arendt’ tonight

Some moviegoers enjoy post-screening discussions. That's one of the treats that film festivals such as the Spokane International Film Festival offers. Director Pete Porter always tries to book someone who can introduce a film, and the filmmaker when possible, and then lead a post-screening Q&A/commentary.

On an occasional basis, the Magic Lantern does it, too. Tonight at 6:30, the Lantern will present a special screening of "Hannah Arendt," the bio-pic of the German-born political theorist, author and academic (directed by Margarethe von Trotta). The film will be co-introduced by Jody Stewart Strobelt, professor of Modern Languages and Literature at Eastern University, and by Sally Winkle, the director of EWU's Women’s and Gender Studies department.

Tickets are $8, $5 for students. Click here for more information.
