Magic Lantern 31st Annual Fall Film Festival @ Magic Lantern Cinemas
12:00 am
The Magic Lantern is delighted to announce the beginning of its 31st Annual Fall Film Festival starting Friday, September 25th.  It’s going to be an unusual Festival this year.   The Festival will go on for the entire month of October and the films are going to be booked for full week runs so there will be ample opportunity to see them. The event will open with three diverse films.  The Dark Divide a life-changing expedition across one of America’s largest undeveloped wildlands, Washington’s Gifford Pinchot National Forest.  It’s a beautiful, quiet, lyrical, funny wilderness trip, and a meditation on loss and picking up the pieces staring David Cross and Debra Messing.  The Burnt Orange Heresy is an erotic thriller set in the high-end art world loaded with plot turns with Italy’s Lake Como serving as a lavish background. The first week’s final entry is a modern classic.  The 1976 Oscar-winning satire on the television news business, Network, which turned out to be frighteningly prescient of television news today. Currently, the festival line up includes Warren Miller’s bio-epic Ski Bum, a quirky British mystery/comedy Sometime Always Never, the third marvelous travelogue with Rob Brydon and Steve Coogan, The Trip to Greece, ...

In this Livestream program, Richard Fife of the USS Idaho Commissioning Committee will discuss the new fast attack nuclear submarine, USS Idaho, currently under construction and scheduled for commissioning in 2023. The USS Idaho (SSN-799), a Virginia-class submarine, will be the fifth U.S. Navy vessel named for the state of Idaho. The last time a ship was commissioned as USS Idaho was in 1919. The USS Idaho BB42 was a battleship that saw service in World War II and had a central role in the Battle of Iwo Jima. Fife will share the history of these ships named for our state, as well as Idaho’s rich Naval history that spans from Camp Farragut in Northern Idaho to Naval Reactors Facility at the Idaho National Lab.

SVMoA Film Screening - Obit. @ Magic Lantern Cinemas | Ketchum | Idaho | United States
4:00 pm
Sun Valley Museum of Art (SVMoA) is pleased to jump back into presenting films with the reopening of the Magic Lantern Cinemas. New this fall, The Museum will screen films weekly, starting Thursday, Sept. 24, and continuing through December. THURSDAY, OCTOBER 29, 2020 – 4:00 PM (first showing) It’s a shame no one wants to talk to them at parties because obituary writers are a surprisingly funny bunch. Ten hours before newspapers hit neighborhood doorsteps–and these days, ten minutes before news hits the web–an obit writer is racing against deadline to sum up a long and newsworthy life in under 1000 words. The details of these lives are then deposited into the cultural memory amid the daily beat of war, politics, and football scores. OBIT. is the first documentary to explore the world of these writers and their subjects, focusing on the legendary team at The New York Times, who approach their daily work with journalistic rigor and narrative flair. Going beyond the byline and into the minds of those chronicling life after death on the freshly inked front lines of history, the film invites some of the most essential questions we ask ourselves about life, memory, and the inevitable ...

Please join us for ninety minutes of generative writing exercises based on the current exhibition. Experiment with new ways to view art and play with language. Everyone is welcome; the workshop is open to all levels, from beginner to advanced. This class takes place Wed, Nov 4, from 6–7:30 pm. Age and ability: 14yrs and older, beginners welcome!
