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. DONATE

Spend your Independence Day weekend being frightened at the discount theaters--perhaps intentionally, perhaps not. ---

Coming to multiple locations is Priest, based on the graphic novel about a spiritual warrior against a vampire plague in a post-apocalyptic world. While it was generally a disappointment at the box office and with critics, our MaryAnn Johanson called it "magnificently lean." Find out for yourself this weekend.

The Cinemark Valley Fair offers a couple of additional options for your bargain viewing pleasure. The first was the surprise horror success Insidious, about a family whose new home may be haunted; our Eric D. Snider praised it for its "good old-fashioned nightmares." And speaking of nightmares, Cinemark Valley Fair also debuts Tyler Perry's Madea's Big Happy Family. You know what you're in for by now, folks. Tyler Perry, Madea picture. Whaddaya want, a road map?
