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.

The film series will begin with First Cow, followed by Walking on Water (about Christo’s The Floating Piers project on Lake Iseo in Italy), MANHATTAN SHORT Film Festival 2020, and the multiple award-winning Honeyland.

In First Cow, director Kelly Reichardt trains her perceptive and patient eye on the Pacific Northwest, evoking an authentically hardscrabble early-19th-century way of life. A taciturn loner and skilled cook travels west to join a group of fur trappers in Oregon Territory. Once there, he only finds true connection with a Chinese immigrant who is also seeking his fortune. Soon the two collaborate on a successful business, although its longevity depends upon the clandestine participation of a nearby wealthy landowner’s prized milking cow. First Cow will be screened at 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 24, at the Magic Lantern Cinemas.

In the interest of community health and safety, SVMoA has adhered to CDC guidelines and the Governor of Idaho’s orders as it invites people back to its museum, classes, and film screenings. Attendees are required to wear face masks upon entry to the Magic Lantern, and seating will be adjusted to comply with physical distancing requirements. Anyone who feels ill or lives with someone who is ill should stay at home. A limited number of tickets will be sold in advance through the SVMoA website; tickets may not be available at the door. For those uncomfortable with an in-person experience, The Museum will post on its website how these films may be viewed from home (with the exception of MANHATTAN SHORT).

Tickets for all films are $10 for SVMoA members and $12 for nonmembers. For more information and to reserve tickets (limited seating), please visit or call 208.726.9491. There will also be further information about physical distancing on SVMoA’s website.
