Today's featured event: A Michael Moore preview in Boulder
Love him or leave him: Michael Moore is either a political tastemaker an acquired taste, depending on which side of the spectrum you stand on. But one thing's for sure -- with each new film, he will always stir up a discussion, often a heated one, and you never know when the people involved are gonna start throwing food.
A little bit of all that will be on the agenda tonight at the Present Tense Films and Discussion series in Boulder, where a preview of Moore's Capitalism: A Love Story will be screened at the Boulder Theater, 2032 14th Street, both in tribute to Ellen Maslow, the late series director, and as a Present Tense fundraiser. The food? Well, technically it won't be thrown, but it will be collected: Donations of such items as cereal, peanut butter, baby food and any other canned protein sources for Emergency Family Service are requested. A not-to-miss for you Moore die-hards. To get tickets, $13.50, visit www.bouldertheater.com or www.presenttense.com.
