Movies 101

KPBX: Friday 6:30pm-7pm | KSFC: Saturday 1pm-1:30pm

The program began mid-1999, as KSFC started establishing itself as a separate news and information service. As KSFC as matured, so has Movies 101. The show has also been picked up on KPBX and has a loyal fan base, Friday evenings at 6:30pm.

Movies 101 is produced by Spokane Public Radio Music and Arts Producer, Jim Tevenan.

Thanks to those who joined SPR for the 50th Anniversary presentation of the Beatles Help! on Thursday, August 20 at 6:30pm at the Bing Crosby Theater.

Originally released July 29, 1965, Help! was the second feature film release by the Beatles following the success of A Hard Day's Night.  The film is a parody of the James Bond films while pitting the beloved rock stars against a couple of mad scientists and a cult.

Movies 101's Nathan Weinbender and KPBX music host/film buff Leonard Oakland host.

The 1979 film "Alien" inserts horror into gritty science fiction, and Spokane Public Radio brings it back to the Bing Crosby Theater's big screen for one night on October 8.
"SPR Goes to the Movies: Alien" includes a Movies 101 taping, where hosts Dan Webster, Mary Pat Treuthart, and Nathan Weinbender discuss the film, the Alien film franchise, and the work of director Ridley Scott.
