Food documentary hits Magic Lantern

By The Spokesman-Review
 

A new documentary exploring genetically modified crops is coming to the Magic Lantern Theatre.

In “GMO OMG,” director Jeremy Seifert searches for answers to questions about how genetically modified foods affect the planet, people’s health and food choice. His quest to see what’s on people’s plates takes him as far away as Haiti and Norway.

The film shows at 7:30 p.m. Thursday. A discussion is planned following the screening.

The film will also run at 5 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and 7 p.m. Sunday, Monday and Tuesday.

Tickets are $7. The Magic Lantern is at 25 W. Main Ave.
