Wake Of Vanport screening
The Hollywood Theatre, 4122 NE Sandy

Stories told by Vanport survivors and others closely related to the era, along with archival photo backdrops, will be screened at The Hollywood Theatre on Sunday, April 30 at 2:00 p.m. The stories focus on life in Vanport and the 1948 Memorial Day flood when a dike broke on the Columbia River. The rising waters completely destroyed Vanport, Oregon, the city built by industrialist and ship builder Henry J. Kaiser. Together, this touching collection of truly heartfelt remembrances paint a poignant portrait of a short-lived, idyllic oasis ­—Movie Critic Kam Williams Immediately following the screening there will be an opportunity for discussion about possible plans for a Vanport memorial. Admission is FREE, but space is limited and reservation is required.

Sponsors and partners: The Oregon Lottery, PCRI, Portland Prime, The Mt. Hood Cable Regulatory Commission, The National Endowment for the Arts: Art Works and The Regional Arts and Culture Council for project funding. Partners Portland Community Media, The Hollywood Theatre, The Oregon Historical Society, and The Skanner Newsgroup have made this project possible.
