‘You Are Here’: Some 9/11 stories warm the heart

Two area Regal Cinemas theaters are holding special-event screenings at 7 p.m. Wednesday that commemorate the anniversary of an unforgettable event:

"You Are Here: A Come From Far Away Story": This 2018 documentary explores the various stories that occurred following the events of Sept. 11, 2001, when some 6,500 passengers from 38 airlines were stranded in Newfoundland. Yes, Canadians are nice.

The documentary, which served as the basis for the musical "Come From Away," took Best Documentary Program and Best Picture Editing honors at the 2019 Canadian Screen Awards, the 2018 Audience Choice Best Documentary Award at Cinefest Sudbury and the jury prize at the BANFF World Media Festival.

The film will play at the Real theaters at Northtown Mall and Coeur d'Alene's Riverstone Stadium.

As for the coming week of movies, the schedule looks to be rounding out, what with a couple of amendments/additions:

"Brittany Runs a Marathon": This film about a young woman (Jillian Bell of "Sword of Trust" fame) training run a marathon will open at AMC River Park Square and, as I've previously noted, the Magic Lantern. Running has its rewards, or so they say.

"Dream Big, Princess: Beauty and the Beast": AMC River Park Square continues its "Dream Big, Princess" series with this screening of the Oscar-winning (Best Song, Best Original Score) 1991 animated adaptation of the classic fairy tale. "Be our guest, be our guest …"

I'll continue to post changes, additions, etc. In the meantime go, see a movie And enjoy.
