Network film screening benefitting Education Without Borderrs
Clinton Street Theater, 2522 SE Clinton

The Clinton Street Resistance Series will be showing Network on Monday, September 11.

In this lauded satire, veteran news anchorman Howard Beale (Peter Finch) discovers that he's being put out to pasture, and he's none too happy about it. After threatening to shoot himself on live television, instead he launches into an angry televised rant, which turns out to be a huge ratings boost for the UBS network. This stunt allows ambitious producer Diana Christensen (Faye Dunaway) to develop even more outrageous programming, a concept that she takes to unsettling extremes.

Tonight's nonprofit recipient is Education WithOut Borders (EWOB), Globalfam's partner organization, a federally recognized 501c3 non-profit. Globalfam Ent. and EWOB jointly conduct community projects in the U.S. and abroad, striving to develop social justice through education, expression and action. They currently run the following projects...

  • AYINET Burundi Computer Center
  • Afrikan Hip Hop Caravan
  • Portland Books for Prisoners

Clinton Street Resistance - Every Monday Clinton Street Theater in collaboration with Dot's Cafe, Lucky Horseshoe Lounge, La Moule, Atlas Pizza, Clinton St Pub, Clinton St Theater, People's Food Co-op and Off the Waffle will be showing a free movie with all donations going to support a different weekly non-profit.

Clinton Resistance Series presents "The Craft", a benefit for Oregon NOW
Clinton Street Theater, 2522 SE Clinton

THE CRAFT: Teenage witches on the loose! Just 5 bucks donation admission to benefit NOW- National Organization for Women.

Ostracized due to the untrue kiss-and-tell tales of football player Chris (Skeet Ulrich), Sarah reluctantly befriends a trio of self-styled outsiders: the horribly scarred Bonnie (Neve Campbell), the "trailer-trash" Nancy (Fairuza Balk), and Rochelle (Rachel True), a frequent victim of anti-black prejudice at the hands of Laura Lizzie (former Marcia Brady and future Mrs. Ben Stiller, Christine Taylor).

After exhibiting latent telekenitic powers in front of Bonnie, Sarah learns that her three new friends have chosen her as their "fourth corner," the final member of their supernatural coven. Using tools stolen from a local incense-and-candle-filled boutique for practitioners of magic, the quartet summons the power of Manon, a primitive deity, to exact revenge on their tormentors and transform their lives.

Drunk with power, they watch their spells get out of control, and the new coven soon realizes that with magic, "whatever you give comes back three-fold."

This mid-'90s horror flick scored first place at the box office its opening weekend despite its then-unknown cast and modest budget. TV star Neve Campbell, who didn't even receive top billing, would go on to become the '90s answer to '70s horror queen Jamie Lee Curtis in the Scream franchise.

Tonight's nonprofit recipient is Oregon NOW (National Organization of Women).

The National Organization for Women (NOW) is the largest organization of feminist activists in the United States. NOW has 500,000 contributing members and 550 chapters in all 50 states and the District of Columbia. Since its founding in 1966, NOW's goal has been to take action to bring about equality for all women. NOW works to eliminate discrimination and harassment in the workplace, schools, the justice system, and all other sectors of society; secure abortion, birth control, and reproductive rights for all women; and end all forms of violence against women; eradicate racism, sexism, and homophobia; and promote equality and justice in our society.

Clinton Resistance Series presents The Invisible Man, a benefit for Portland Homeless Family Solutions
Clinton Street Theater, 2522 SE Clinton

Wittily scripted by R.C. Sherriff and an uncredited Philip Wylie, and brilliantly directed by James Whale, The Invisible Man is a near-untoppable combination of horror and humor. Also deserving of unqualified praise are the thorouhgly convincing special effects by John P. Fulton and John Mescall. With the exception of The Invisible Man Returns, none of the sequels came anywhere close to the quality of the 1933 original.

Trivia alert: watch for Dwight "Renfield" Frye as a bespectacled reporter, Walter Brennan as the man whose bicycle was stolen, and John Carradine as the fellow in the phone booth who's "gawt a plan to ketch the h'invisible man."

Tonight's nonprofit recipient is Portland Homeless Family Solutions, a housing first program that empowers homeless families with children to get back into housing - and stay there.

If you want to reserve a seat, or simply make a $5 donation, please do so through the link provided.

Clinton Street Resistance presents Brazil, benefitting Books for Prisoners
Clinton Street Theater, 2522 SE Clinton

Terry Gilliam's 1985 film is a surrealist nightmare of a low-level bureaucrat in a dismal world of the near future.

Brazil is this unique amalgamation of ideas straight out of Terry Gilliam's head that results in something so strange and so unique that it's just genius with a conclusion that is undeniably haunting. -- Chris Sawin, Examiner.com

Tonight's nonprofit recipient is Books for Prisoners, a Seattle-based nonprofit organization whose mission is to foster a love of reading behind bars, encourage the pursuit of knowledge and self-empowerment, and break the cycle of recidivism. As one of the largest and oldest prison book projects in the country, Books to Prisoners works in partnership with other groups that support prisoner literacy and promote social justice. Though our headquarters are in Seattle, we have two associate organizations – Portland Books To Prisoners and Books To Prisoners Olympia – who offer opportunities for volunteers and donors outside of Seattle.

Little Women (1994) benefitting Rahab's Sisters
Clinton Street Theater, 2522 SE Clinton

This newest version of Louisa May Alcott's tender novel is considered to be among the best as it chronicles the lives of four sisters growing up in the mid nineteenth century. The story is set in New England during and immediately after the Civil War. The four March sisters Meg, Jo, Beth, and Amy are living alone with their mother Marmee. Their father has left to fight in the Union Army and their standard of living and social status has been greatly reduced. The story primarily focuses upon Jo, a budding writer of adventure and crime stories. As the seasons turn and years pass the girls grow up. Meg marries her former tutor Brooke, Beth is damaged by scarlet fever, and Jo spurns Laurie after he proposes. Marmee advises Jo to celebrate her independence and Jo moves to New York where she becomes a trashy novelist under the pen name "Joseph." In New York she meets Friedrich Bhaer a German philosophy professor. She feels an instant connection to him. Meanwhile Amy is in Europe studying art when she encounters Laurie who has become a playboy. After a family tragedy and at the behest of her mentor the professor, Jo changes her writing style and becomes Louisa May Alcott.

Director Gillian Armstrong's feminist spin on classic material retains the moving humanity of Louisa May Alcott's novel while reworking it with welcome freshness. -- TV Guide

Tonight's nonprofit recipient is Rahab's Sisters, whose mission is to offer “Radical Hospitality” to women in the Portland Metro area that have been marginalized by the sex industry, domestic violence, poverty, substance abuse, and homelessness.
