Clinton Street Resistance presents The Last Dragon, benefitting Operation Refugee Child
Clinton Street Theater, 2522 SE Clinton

In New York City, a young man searches for the "master" plus obtain the final level of martial arts mastery known as the glow. Along the way, he must fight a martial arts expert corrupted with power, and rescue a beautiful singer from an obsessed music promoter.

"There are three things that you can always count on in a memorable 80s flick: the guy always gets the impossible to get girl, the good guy wins the big fight at the end, and finally the main narrative is just a simple everyday homily. With quotable dialogue beyond my allotted word count and a soundtrack from the King of Motown, The Last Dragongets my “Reboot Ready” Stamp of approval." Jarrett Kruse, Den of Geek

Clinton Street Resistance presents TOP GUN benefitting Feed The Hungry, Inc.
Clinton Street Theater, 2522 SE Clinton

Devil-may-care navy pilot Pete Mitchell (Tom Cruise) is sent to Miramar Naval Air Station for advanced training. Here he vies with Tom Kasansky (Val Kilmer) for the coveted "Top Gun" award. When not so occupied, Mitchell carries on a romance with civilian consultant Charlotte Blackwood (Kelly McGillis). Shaken up by the death of a friend, Mitchell loses the Top Gun honor to Kasansky. Worried that he may have lost his nerve, Mitchell is given a chance to redeem himself during a tense international crisis involving a crippled US vessel and a flock of predatory enemy planes.

The story wasn't new in 1986, but Top Gun scored with audiences on the strength of its visuals, especially the vertigo-inducing aerial sequences. The film made more money than any other film in 1986 and even spawned a 1989 takeoff, Hot Shots. An Academy Award went to the Giogio Moroder-Tom Whitlock song "Take My Breath Away." ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Director: Tony Scott Country: United States Year: 1986 Runtime: 110 minutes

There are elements that hold up - especially Cruise's blinding charisma. The aerial scenes are still thrilling, and perfectly suited to a giant screen. Everything else? Well, that depends on how nostalgic you're feeling. -- Elizabeth Weitzman, New York Daily News

Clinton Street Resistance presents Born On The Fourth of July, a benefit for Unite Oregon
Clinton Street Theater, 2522 SE Clinton

The second of three films by co-writer/director Oliver Stone to explore the effects of the Vietnam War (Platoon and Heaven and Earth are the others), Born On The Fourth Of July tells the true story of Ron Kovic (Tom Cruise), a patriotic, All-American small town athlete who shocks his family by enlisting with the Marines to fight in the Vietnam War. Once he is overseas, however, Kovic's gung-ho enthusiasm turns to horror and confusion when he accidentally kills one of his own men in a firefight. His downfall is furthered by a bullet wound that leaves him paralyzed from the chest down. He returns home, spends an appalling, nightmarish stint in a veterans' hospital, and follows an increasingly disillusioned and fragmented path that ultimately leaves him drunk and dissolute in Mexico. However, Kovic somehow turns himself around and pulls his life together, becoming an outspoken anti-war activist in the process. The film is long but emotionally powerful; many consider it Stone's best work and Cruise's best performance. Both were nominated for Oscars, as was the film itself, but only Stone, who co-wrote the film with Kovic from the latter's book, won for Best Director. ~ Don Kaye, Rovi

Hi from the quirky Portland Resistance Calendar! We love the Clinton Street and their plucky dedication to both refreshingly fluffy eye-candy and very political films to aid us in the Resistance. Please give to this fundraiser. Please.

Just Eat It film screening
Clinton Street Theater, 2522 SE Clinton

Did you know our FOOD WASTE is a major driver of Climate Change? Come see the film JUST EAT IT. Shocking, crucial, and hugely entertaining! Grant Baldwin and Jenny Rustemeyer conduct an experiment to eat only discarded food for six months, highlighting an environmental crisis evidently fed by wasteful North American eating habits, but in a cheeky, accessible way. The cornucopia they discover inside dumpsters will leave audiences gobsmacked, and will have them mopping up their dinner plates with renewed vigor.

Clinton Street Resistance presents Night of the Living Dead, a benefit for Oregon Music Hall of Fame
Clinton Street Theater, 2522 SE Clinton

A cult classic--one that can stand the test of time, even if Vincent Canby didn't realize it in 1968.


By Vincent Canby Published: December 5, 1968

Night of the Living Dead is a grainy little movie acted by what appear to be nonprofessional actors, who are besieged in a farm house by some other nonprofessional actors who stagger around, stiff-legged, pretending to be flesh-eating ghouls.

The dialogue and background music sound hollow, as if they had been recorded in an empty swimming pool, and the wobbly camera seems to have a fetishist's interest in hands, clutched, wrung, scratched, severed, and finally—in the ultimate assumption—eaten like pizza.

The movie, which was made by some people in Pittsburgh, opened yesterday at the New Amsterdam Theater on 42d Street and at other theaters around town.


Tonight's nonprofit recipient recognizes all former artist inductees and, once a year, elects new inductees into the Oregon Music Hall of Fame based their contributions to music in Oregon as well as their impact on music around the world.

While honoring Oregon’s musical heritage, OMHOF helps develop Oregon’s talent of today and tomorrow by hosting periodic Emerging Artist Showcases and introducing Oregon audiences to the State’s hottest new bands and solo acts.

OMHOF also takes an active part in promoting musical education in Oregon schools--first through scholarship money for selected Oregon high school seniors who are continuing their musical studies in college. Secondly, as music programs are being cut from Oregon grade and middle schools, OMHOF, helps raise funds to keep the music flowing.

Dakota 38 Screening and Fundraiser for Sioux Nation Relief Fund
Clinton Street Theater, 2522 SE Clinton

In the spring of 2005, Jim Miller, a Native spiritual leader and Vietnam veteran, found himself in a dream riding on horseback across the great plains of South Dakota. Just before he awoke, he arrived at a riverbank in Minnesota and saw 38 of his Dakota ancestors hanged. At the time, Jim knew nothing of the largest mass execution in United States history, ordered by Abraham Lincoln on December 26, 1862. "When you have dreams, you know when they come from the creator... As any recovered alcoholic, I made believe that I didn't get it. I tried to put it out of my mind, yet it's one of those dreams that bothers you night and day."

Four years later, embracing the message of the dream, Jim and a group of riders retraced the 330-mile route of his dream on horseback from Lower Brule, South Dakota to Mankato, Minnesota to arrive at the hanging site on the anniversary of the execution. "We can't blame the wasichus anymore. We're doing it to ourselves. We're selling drugs. We're killing our own people. That's what this ride is about, is healing." This is the story of their journey- the blizzards they endured, the Native and Non-Native communities that housed and fed them along the way, and the dark history they are beginning to wipe away.

Donations will be accepted for the Sioux Nation Relief Fund, which provides program services that benefit the Sioux Indians in the Northern Great Plains. Its MISSION is "To help Native American people improve the quality of their lives by providing opportunities for them to bring about positive changes in their communities."

No one turned away.
