New Gorge Amphitheatre Documentary To Be Screened In Spokane
The Gorge

GEORGE, Wash. — A new documentary about the rich history of the Gorge Ampitheatre will hit theaters nationwide in July.

The documentary tells the story of the Gorge through the eyes of some of the biggest artists who have graced the iconic amphitheater’s stage. According to its filmmakers, “Enormous: The Gorge Story” details how a family-owned Washington winery, with a makeshift plywood stage, eventually became “The Gorge,” an internationally renowned concert venue that has attracted more than 7 million fans and the world’s biggest musicians.

“Enormous: The Gorge Story” was scheduled to be screened last year, but COVID safety restrictions put plans on hold. In celebration of movie theaters reopening — and live music returning to the Gorge — the film will now be screened on July 21, with additional screenings in select locations.

Fairchild Cinemas – Queensgate 12 Richland will show the film at 7 p.m. on July 21 & 22, as will Fairchild Cinemas – Moses Lake. Cinemark Grand Cinemas in Walla Walla will screen the movie for one night only, on July 21 at 7 p.m.

AMC River Park Square in Spokane and Regal in Spokane Valley will also be showing the documentary. North Idaho moviegoers can catch the film at Riverstone STM in Coeur d’Alene.
