Al Gore, movie star

There’s no talk of an Oscar yet for nearly-president Al Gore, but there’s lots of buzz in the local environmental community about his new feature-length documentary on global warming, “An Inconvenient Truth.”

Climate Solutions, a Seattle-based group advocating “practical solutions to climate change,” urged everyone on its email list today to see the movie when it opens Friday in two Seattle theaters. The group’s “action alert” calls it a “must-see” movie and notes that a strong opening weekend is vital if the movie is to have a long local run.

Talk about packing the house. The flick is expected to play at Tacoma’s Grand Cinema, but no word yet on an opening date.
