Need Something To Do Wednesday?


Summer has entered the phase where it's kind of like a going-out-of-business sale: Get it while you can, because you don't know when it'll be gone for good. Float the river, eat some shaved ice, soak up those rays, and if you haven't made it out to Idaho Botanical Garden for an outdoor movie, do it tonight.

IBG kicked off its summer movie series July 11 with Mama Mia! and has since shown Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Arc, The Goonies and Hairspray. Tonight, you can catch the second-to-last film of the season, the 1959 flick Some Like It Hot.

Beginning at dusk, you can glimpse Tony Curtis and Jack Lemmon in drag alongside legendary bombshell Marilyn Monroe in a tale that's not short on romance, disguises or mobsters.

Blankets and picnics filled with movie candy are essentials for films shown at IBG. Food and beverage vendors will also be available. Gates open at 7 p.m. and tickets are $5, or $3 for IBG members and youth ages 5-12, and FREE for children younger than 4.

IBG will wrap up its outdoor movie series with the film that made small-town Idaho famous, Napoleon Dynamite, Wednesday, Sept. 19.
