Sci-fi and fairy tales
It may look like a "Terminator" rip-off, but "I, Robot" is actually an adaptation of an Isaac Asimov novel that predates most of the classic robots-gone-wild movies. Will Smith leads the human resistance. Meanwhile, there's no resisting teen sensations Hilary Duff and Chad Michael Murray, who put a modern spin on a classic fairy tale in "A Cinderella Story." Both films open Friday at Movies 10 at Westgate.
The Jaques Art Center in Aitkin unveils a new gallery with a grand opening celebration at 10 a.m. Saturday. The Francis Lee Jaques Gallery will appropriately feature Jaques' works in its first exhibit. Guest speakers from the University of Minnesota and the Arrowhead Regional Arts Council, along with glass blowing demonstrations by Jon Offutt, are among the offerings.
