1. SEE A THRILLER
Local movie used to mean unwatchable movie. Not anymore. Filmed in Boise, "3 of a Kind" is an award-winning psychological thriller that confronts domestic violence. Watching the trailer, you get the feeling Boiseans may be cheering at the screen during the Idaho premiere. The showing at 7 p.m. Saturday at the Egyptian Theatre is part of a planned 17-city tour with proceeds going to local domestic violence shelters. Actress Margot Kidder, who plays Claire, says, " '3 of a Kind' is an extraordinary film, and to shoot it in Boise was a wonderful experience."

Potential for success seems solid at the 2,200-capacity Revolution Center — at least based on response from about 600 Capital High students who danced the night away for homecoming Sept. 28.
