Downtown Boise's Egyptian Theater - presenting an ever-widening array of concert, lecture, and film fare - has a interesting choice for its movie this coming week. You can go see An Inconvenient Truth, Al Gore's Oscar-winning documentary on global warming, on the big screen for $4 October 12-18, with showtimes at 3, 5:15, and 7:30 p.m.
Why this movie? Why now? Well, Al Gore is atop the short list for possible winners of the Nobel Peace Prize, which will be announced Friday in Oslo. And even if Gore doesn't take home the prize, we could all benefit from another viewing of this film before the winter inversion season hits. Hmmmm ... maybe I'll get tickets for the clueless neighbor who insists on warming up his big honkin' truck engine for ten minutes starting each morning, even when it's 60 degrees out.
Update: Gore won the Nobel, and tickets are only $2!
