Welcome to this week’s edition of Back Lot 605’s Coming Soon column! This week brings us all sorts of Movies for Guys Who Like Movies… as well as everything from a musical to a kids’ horror flick! Here’s what coming soon for the week of September 17th, 2021:
Featured Title: Cry Macho
Not even the pandemic could keep 91-year-old Clint Eastwood from making movies at his typical near-annual pace… and not only did he direct this movie late last year during the height of COVID, but he stars in it as well! He plays a washed-up rodeo star who’s recruited by his ex-boss (Dwight Yoakam) to retrieve his teenage son (Eduardo Minett) from Mexico. Also, the kid ha a pet rooster… allowing Clint to get away with the line of dialogue that ends the trailer below! (Opens Friday, September 17th in theaters nationwide, including the Century Stadium 14 & XD, the Century East at Dawley Farm, and the West Mall 7 in Sioux Falls.)

(Showing Thursday, September 16th, Saturday, September 18th and Saturday, September 19th at the State Theatre.)
