Need Something To Do Wednesday?



Listen to the universe and it will probably tell you to head to the movies today. A slew of the day's most interesting events have to do with the silver screen, so you can pick which cinematic endeavor appeals most to you, grab a tub of popcorn, and get ready for some entertaining R and R.

Wanna hang out outside before it gets too chilly? Idaho Botanical Garden will conclude its Movies in the Garden series tonight with the Idaho-centric comedy Napoleon Dynamite. Watch Jon Heder in his role as quite possibly one of the most socially awkward individuals on the planet at dusk. Gates will open at 7 p.m., picnics are allowed or you can purchase snacks at IBG. Cost is $5 for adults, $3 for members and children ages 5-12 and FREE for children younger than 4.

The Boise Public Library branch at Collister Road will continue its Books to Film movie nights, as well, with the PG-13 action/adventure/sci-fi flick based on the book Dune. Light snacks are allowed and the event is FREE. Visit the library's website to get a look at the book behind the flick.

And finally, if you're feeling like a classic film, head to Edwards Downtown Stadium Nine or Edwards Boise Stadium 22 and IMAX to catch Alfred Hitchcock's The Birds. Turner Classic Movies host Robert Osborne will introduce the film, which debuted almost 50 years ago, and present an interview with the film's star, Tippi Hedren.

The event begins at 7 p.m. and tickets are $12.50. Buy yours in advance at
