There was a time in the film industry when a movie was not wholly judged on its returns, when the merit of a film could be found in its effort to capture the spirit of an important moment in human history. They were called “epics,” they cost a lot of money, and they aren’t made very often anymore. How the West Was Won is an expansive treatment on Manifest Destiny utilizing a stunning all-star cast to recreate the great western expansion that laid the groundwork for the American century.

Sunday 9/30 $4-6, 2pm. The Paramount Theater, 215 E. Main St. 979-1333.
