Friday’s openings redux: Three at the Lantern

As for the Magic Lantern Theater, its week of playing host to the 2020 Spokane International Film Festival is over. And the arthouse plans to open three new films on Friday.

The films are:

"Extra Ordinary": Irish stand-up comic Maeve Higgins stars in this offbeat story about ghosts, exorcisms, music and comedy. Nice bit of blending, eh?

"Portrait of a Lady on Fire": When a woman painter is contracted to paint the portrait of a reclusive woman about the be married, sparks fly all over the place. But who or what gets consumed?

"The Woman Who Loves Giraffes": One of the hits of 2020 SpIFF, this documentary tells the story of Anne Innis Dagg, a Canadian woman whose field work in Africa on giraffes predated Jane Goodall's work on chimpanzees.

That's all for the moment. I'll continue to update as needed.
