You ever heard of the classic Oregon movie Sometimes a Great Notion, based on the Ken Kesey novel Sometimes a Great Notion?
Just a few days ago, ADL and DKC took a real long weekend on the central coast, visiting the film sites and drinking spots utilized by the production’s cast and crew. We’re currently putting together an audio production that will be a KAOH self-guided audio tour of these locations – and a chance for you to hear some of the stories behind the film. We’ll keep you updated, but look for that around the Labor Day Holiday.
Next, Oregon Film will be showing the movie, a 35mm print, at the Hollywood Theater on September 10th at 7:30pm. It’s not everyday that you get to see Sometimes a Great Notion on the big screen, so be sure to come check it out! More details about the viewing can be found HERE.
And finally, since the movie is not the novel. and in fact deviates form the novel quite a bit, we decided to do a podcast about Sometimes a Great Notion, The Novel! Look for that around the end of September.
