Great Films Made in Montana
In celebration of the beautiful state we are proud to call home, Art House Cinema in conjunction with North By Northwest will be presenting four outstanding films that feature Big Sky country in unique and engaging ways with a Montana-Made Film Series at the historic Babcock Theatre. Films kick off Friday, September 13th with the highly-acclaimed A River Runs Through It (1992), based on Montana author Norman Maclean’s 1976 novel and filmed primarily in Livingston by film legend Robert Redford. On Saturday we’ll take a more nuanced look at Montana, Billings specifically, in Alexander Payne’s deeply moving dramatic-comedy Nebraska (2013); followed that evening with a showing of Jared Moshe’s indie take on the American western filmed in Southwest Montana with The Ballad of Lefty Brown (2017). And to close the series on Sunday, we’ll screen the gripping documentary Dark Money (2018),Montana director Kimberly Reed’s deep dive into political corruption and Montana’s role in the fight to preserve fair politics. Four excellent films we are proud to have been made in Montana and thrilled to be able to highlight at this historic theatre in Downtown Billings!
