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

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

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

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

Help Your Historic Neighborhood Clinton Street Theater

Hi from the quirky Clinton Street Theater, doing our best to keep Portland weird. We have a simple mission--to support and build community through the power of independent film and live events.

We've hit a bit of a rough patch, and we need YOU to get through it. That's why we've started an Indiegogo Campaign. The dollars you contribute might fund a myriad of much needed projects like installing a 35mm changeover system to a retrofitted energy-efficient marquee, but first and foremost, you will help us keep the lights on.

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.

Clinton Street Theater The CST... Portland's oldest continuously running independent art house, and home to all Rocky Horror fans.

Portland Resistance Calendar Portland Resistance Calendar is a podcast/blog which covers Portland-area social justice events for the upcoming week. It's updated Friday afternoons.
