Missoula’s Roxy Theater taking a step into the past

The Roxy Theater has been a sentinel on Higgins Avenue for almost 80 years, showing 2,000 movies a year and hosting the International wildlife film festival.

The iconic theater is almost ready for her close up. The Roxy Re-Deco campaign, a $200,000 historic restoration on her façade, will take her back to 1937 when the theater first opened.

Certain Women Trailer … and Introducing Lily Gladstone

Enjoy the new trailer for Kelly Reichardt’s CERTAIN WOMEN. The film was one of the most acclaimed offerings at Sundance this year, and you can catch it at the Montana Film Festival, October 6-9.

“Certain Women” reunites Reichardt with actress Michelle Williams who starred in her films “Wendy and Lucy” and  “Meek’s Cutoff.”  Rounding out the main trio are Laura Dern and Kristen Stewart.  The film also stars The Roxy’s own Lily Gladstone. The film takes place in Montana, where three intersecting narratives bring the characters together.  The film is based on Maile Meloy’s short-story collection “Both Ways Is the Only Way I Want It.”
