About Last Night: Cult Classic Vision Quest at 30

About Last Night. Fun to attend the 30-year anniversary screening of the cult classic film, Vision Quest at Fox Theater (Spokane, Washington) with actor Mathew Modine and author Terry Davis. 

A word to describe Mathew Modine is genuine. He is truly a nice guy who was generous with his time and so appreciative of the author, coach, cast and Spokane. He was sweet, funny and very much like the lovable Louden Swain.

It was interesting to hear the behind-the-scene take on the making on Vision Quest, such as which scenes they came back and shot after the film wrapped up and what was really happening off the set. Forrest Whittaker was an extra and Mathew was in Spokane for 5 months prior learning how to wrestle with Mead High School wrestling coach, Cash Stone. Stone played a ref in the film. Loved seeing all the shots of Spokane bridges, downtown and Palouse. Looks like Spokane has grown up as well.
