And then there was one.
Hayden Cinemas, an independent movie theater located in the Prairie Shopping Center in Hayden, will close after today.
The cinema’s owners announced the closure on their Facebook page.
The cinema, which has been open for 15 years, has been running a mix of first- and second-run features on its six screens.
That leaves only one movie theater in Kootenai County – the Regal multiplex at Riverstone in Coeur d’Alene.
“Different Drummers,” a made-in-Spokane movie that finished shooting this past fall, had its world premiere April 18 at Worldfest-Houston International Film Festival, where it walked away with a couple of awards.
The drama, a true story about the friendship between two Spokane boys – one a “hyperactive fireball” and the other who has muscular dystrophy – won a platinum Remington Award in the family/children theatrical features category. Brayden Tucker of Spokane, who plays Lyle, one of the two boys, won a critics choice award for best young actor, according to a news release from producers.
The film was written and directed by Lyle Hatcher and Don Caron.
The Northwest Museum of Arts and Culture has won an Award of Excellence from the Washington Museum Association for its “David Douglas: A Naturalist at Work” exhibit.
According to a MAC news release, the winning museum “must have exhibited the ability to set standards of leadership through outstanding service, established precedent, fulfilled mission and purpose, showed marked improvement, and provided an extended level of service to the community served.”
The award will be presented at the association’s conference in June, in Ellensburg.
The exhibit, which runs through Aug. 25, was created by senior curator of history Marsha Rooney and guest curators Jack and Claire Nisbet. After its run at the MAC concludes, the exhibit will travel to the Washington State History Museum in Tacoma, where it will be on display from Sept. 21 through Feb. 23, 2014.
The Panida Theater in Sandpoint will join in the inaugural Idaho Gives campaign Thursday, with an eye to continued restoration of the 1927 facility.
The campaign is a one-day online event to benefit Idaho nonprofits. Panida supporters aim to use funds collected for “long-term improvements, restoration and repairs of the theater,” according to a news release.
