Two free movie screenings tonight cover a pretty broad spectrum: from corporate agri-business, to Johnny Depp in bondage gear.
At the Fort Douglas Post Theater tonight at 7 p.m., the SLC Film Center presents Robert Kenner's documentary Food, Inc. It covers developments in agricultural and food production practices that are having profound effects on our health, our environment and on the way the market is carved up. As we head into Farmer's Market season, it's a great chance to think about exactly where the meal on your table is coming from.
From the troubling to the fantastic, there's the City Weekly Free Movie Night at Brewvies presentation of Tim Burton's Edward Scissorhands. The director's early-period fascination with outcasts and oddballs may have reached its summit in his story of a manufactured boy (Depp) whose appendages weren't quite complete before his creator died. He's pretty nifty at topiary and hairstyling, but having a girlfriend could get tricky. Join our crew at 8 p.m. tonight.
