What’s Up Missoula: Weekend Update
March is gone and April is here. As 2017 flies by, we’ll continue to keep you up to date on the best weekend events in and around Missoula.
New movies in theaters include the long-delayed remake, “Ghost in the Shell”, and family-friendly “Boss Baby” featuring Alec Baldwin as the titular toddler, but if you’re looking to catch a flick this Friday night we recommend you take advantage of a special screening of “The Big Lebowski”. The Wilma Theater is hosting a free screening of the Coen Brothers’ cult classic at 8 PM. Doors open at 7 and you can take advantage of The Wilma’s full bar service. We recommend pairing the film with a White Russian.
