    Promised Land at Portland EcoFilm Festival

    The Hollywood Theatre

    Benefit screening: 100% of ticket sales donated to Chinook Indian Nation's legal fund! PROMISED LAND centers on two indigenous tribes of the Pacific Northwest: the Duwamish and the Chinook Indian Nation, as they both fight for the restoration of treaty rights still legally denied to them by the US government. The film is an exploration of the inseparability of identity and place, the ways society and government look at tribal sovereignty, and a deep look at whose land we inhabit.

    Presented in partnership with Tall Firs Cinema, the Oregon Chapter of the Sierra Club, Columbia Riverkeeper, Greenpeace Pacific Northwest, Oregon Physicians for Social Responsibility, and Climate Solutions. All tickets sales will be donated to the Chinook Nation's legal fund. If you wish to make an additional donation to the fund: http://www.chinooknation.org/contribute-paypal.html

    Mississippi Records Presents "Being There", a benefit for the Social Justice Fund

    The Hollywood Theatre

    Mississippi Records Music & Film Series presents BEING THERE!

    Hal Ashby (director of HAROLD & MAUDE, THE LAST DETAIL, COMING HOME, etc.) makes a pitch-perfect movie adaptation of Jerzy Kozinski's novel. Peter Sellers plays Chance the Gardener, a naive white man in a suit who manages to scale to the highest echelons of power in the USA despite the fact that he only knows the world through the lens of what he has seen on television. (Sound familiar?) Just by being a conservative-looking white man in a white mans' world, Chance (renamed Chauncey Gardener) rises and rises - in a matter of days - by repeating vague nonsensical rhetoric. Co-staring Shirley McClain, this is as timely a comedy as we could get.

    A portion of the proceeds from this screening go to The Social Justice Fund, a foundation working at the front lines of social change. The Social Justice Fund leverages the resources of its members to foster significant, long-term social justice solutions throughout Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Montana and Wyoming.

    Wake Of Vanport screening
    free

    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.
