David Lynch is coming to town in October for an advance screening of his new film, "The Straight Story." The 5.9 million film got a standing ova- ion at Cannes last week The movie's about the late Alvin Straight the 73-year old iowa guy who drove his lawn mower to Wisconsin five years ago to make peace with his dying brother.
