It’s like to children's story: "The Little Engine That Could." The Sisters Movie House scored a coup by landing an opening day screening of the Coen Brothers' remake of “True Grit". Owner Lisa Clausen says since Sisters has a reputation for being a cowboy town, it made perfect sense to have the movie debut here.   "You know we have people who come out here from all over Central Oregon actually to experience what the Sisters Movie House is all about. And “True Grit” it sort of personifies what kind of film does really, really wellhere and people have come to expect from us." Clausen says they started lobbying the studio for the movie over the summer. They were able to demonstrate how popular the Movie House is, and that made a big impression on the distributors. This remake of “True Grit” is said to be truer to the novel rather than the John Wayne movie. Opening night is Wednesday.
