1984 - A Benefit for Causa Oregon

Cinema 21, 616 NW 21st
616 NW 21st Avenue
Portland, OR 97209, US (map)



Cinema 21 is participating in a nationwide event to screen 1984–the film based on George Orwell's novel–on April 4th. Orwell's portrait of a government that manufactures their own facts, demands total obedience and demonizes the press and foreigners, has never been timelier. April 4th is the day Orwell's protagonist, Winston Smith, begins rebelling against his oppressive government by keeping a forbidden diary

A portion of ticket sales will benefit Causa Oregon (http://causaoregon.org/), which works to improve the lives of Latino immigrants and their families in Oregon. The current political environment has brought immediate and significant threats to marginalized and underserved communities in our country. Causa’s work has become more crucial in a time when the livelihoods of Latino immigrants in Oregon and across the nation are most vulnerable. Causa fights for the civil and human rights of our Latino immigrant neighbors, friends, co-workers, and families.

NOTE: 1984 screens in its original theatrical version featuring a soundtrack by the Eurythmics.
