Most everyone who walks or drives near the intersection of Sheridan and Hudson avenues can’t help but look up, and keep looking up.

Double park

How will Myriad Botanical Gardens renovations affect the MAPS 3 central park?


News

Clifton Adcock
Under a MAPS 3 timeline that has yet to receive the City Council’s stamp of approval, the $130 million park, located between what will be the future boulevard and the realigned Interstate 40 and Robinson and Hudson avenues, would be one of the last projects completed in the program.

Myriad of movies

Grab your blanket and lawn chairs, and spend some quality time with Indiana Jones, Sherlock Holmes and The Edge.

Recently reopened after Project 180 renovations, downtown’s Myriad Botanical Gardens at 301 W. Reno has ushered in its new digs with “Movies Under the Stars.” The weekly Wednesday series began last week with Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, and Shrek played last night, but several more screenings are scheduled, all free, all beginning at 9 p.m.

For the rest of the summer, expect:
• July 25, Grease
• Aug. 1, Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom (pictured, duh)
• Aug. 8, West Side Story
• Aug. 15, Never Cry Wolf
• Aug. 22, U2: Rattle and Hum
• Aug. 29, Sherlock Holmes

That’s quite a lineup compared to the usual suspects of such free film series, with U2: Rattle and Hum striking me as a particularly inspired choice. I have fond memories of seeing that music doc three times to a largely empty theater at the long-ago-closed AMC Northwest 8. (Yes, kids, this thing we call “you too” was the Justin Bieber and Katy Perry of my day: They were so big, they had their own picture show!) Suddenly, I have an itch to dig out the soundtrack.

Please note that coolers are permitted, but not open containers of *hic!* alcohol. For more information,  call 297-3995 or visit myriadgardens.org. —Rod Lott
