Have ‘Tea With the Dames’ at the Magic Lantern

The Magic Lantern, Spokane's traditional screener of art movies, has announced its coming lineup. Opening on Friday are:

"Tea With the Dames": The "Dames" in question — Maggie Smith, Joan Plowright, Judi Dench and Eileen Atkins — discuss their long and distinguished careers in this documentary directed by Roger Michell ("Notting Hill").

"Colette": Though having opened last week at AMC's River Park Square, this second-run screening should still attract a crowd that prefers to see such historical dramas played on on the Lantern's screen. Keira Knightley stars as the French writer, whose early works were credited to her husband (evilly played by Dominic West).

Changes to the overall schedule are still coming. So stay tuned.
