Brief Points for Sept. 24


Because of a scheduling conflict, the lineup for this weekend's installment of Mountain Movie Fallfest has been changed to "The Door in the Floor" and "DeLovely." Both films run today through Thursday.

Fallfest has been extended one more week to include a rock 'n' roll-themed pair: "Metallica: Some Kind of Monster" and "Festival Express." Both films run from Oct. 1 to 7.

"Festival Express" tells the story of a chartered train that crossed Canada in 1970 carrying members of The Grateful Dead, Janis Joplin, The Band, Buddy Guy and others.

Film festival cards are on sale to offset freight costs. Cards are $5 and give the buyer access to all Fallfest films for $5 each. Films regularly cost $7 or $5 for seniors.

For more information, visit Calendars and cards are available at the Mountain Movie box office, 1870 Ski Time Square Drive. Call 879-7299.
