We need your help.

Newspapers and media companies nationwide are closing or suffering mass layoffs since the coronavirus impacted all of us starting in March. City Weekly's entire existence is directly tied to people getting together in groups--in clubs, restaurants, and at concerts and events--which are the industries most affected by new coronavirus regulations.

Our industry is not healthy. Yet, City Weekly has continued publishing thanks to the generosity of readers like you. Utah needs independent journalism more than ever, and we're asking for your continued support of our editorial voice. We are fighting for you and all the people and businesses hardest hit by this pandemic.

You can help by making a one-time or recurring donation on, which directs you to our Galena Fund 501(c)(3) non-profit, a resource dedicated to help fund local journalism. It is never too late. It is never too little. Thank you.

Life and Depp



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.
