The last picture show
People around Beach, N.D., are bracing for what could be the last picture show at the Bijou Theater, a fixture in the town of 1,000 near the Montana line.
The Bijou's owner, Margaret Walz, plans to close the theater after showing the animated feature "Cars," a movie run that begins today and ends Sunday.
The 74-year-old widow is ailing from arthritis and can no longer manage the theater, which has been in her family since the 1930s.
