And what about Spokane's vaunted arthouse movie theater, the Magic Lantern? What will open there on Friday?
Nothing new, as it turns out, though still a trio of interesting selections. The Lantern will bring in "Midsommar," the horror film from Ari Aster — the guy who gave us last year's creepy thriller "Hereditary." Aster's film, which is a revenge-flick, domestic-squabble study (one that the writer-director himself described as a "breakup movie") and which played earlier this summer at AMC River Park Square.
In reference to the Morrison movie, it's important to note that the Novel Prize-winning author died on Aug. 5 at the age of 88. As another great American writer, Kurt Vonnegut, would say, "So it goes."
The Lantern is scheduled to open the Australian film "The Nightingale" on Aug. 30.
