(Posted Tuesday) Bit of a slow weekend for moviegoers, but then, the summer season is nearly over. Bring on the fall.
The week’s opening are as follows:
“The November Man”: Pierce Brosnan plays a retired CIA agent whose duty call-back involves taking on the kid he once mentored. What, Bruce Willis wasn’t available?
“As Above, So Below”: When an archaeological team explores the catacombs of Paris, they discover … horror! Another found-footage venture into … ooooh, kids, scary!
“Ghostbusters”: AMC brings back the 1984 hit comedy for a special run. “This city is headed for a disaster of biblical proportions.”
And at the Magic Lantern:
“Frank”: Michael Fassbender plays an eccentric leader of a band who insists on wearing a papier-mâché headpiece. (The Lantern will also pick up a second-run screening of Woody Allen’s “Magic in the Moonlight.” “The One I Love” has been pushed back to Sept. 5.)
(Posted Aug. 22) If you’ve noticed some sidewalk arts displays set up around Spokane over the past several months, you may not know what they’re about. I’m referring to the ones marked as the Spokane 50, an art/photo project, conceived and produced by Marshall Peterson, designed to honor that number of Spokane residents who are arts boosters.
You can find out more about the project by visiting www.facebook.com/SpokaneFifty. Or you can watch the embedded video we’ve posted at spokane7.com/blog, a production by the team behind the Spokane Film Project.
They all deserve a round of applause: the 50, the Spokane Film Project and Marshall himself.

(Posted Thursday) The Sept. 20 concert by LeRoy Bell and His Only Friends at the Bing Crosby Theater has been canceled because of a schedule conflict.
