Special treat--brought to you on 35mm
"Nothing is put together for you, but all the pieces of the puzzle are there for you to create what you want. It's refreshing to see a movie that is completely out of the box, and doesn't follow any present forumla. THE WALL is a great rock opera." Austin Kennedy, Sin Magazine
This week's screening is a Fundraiser for Night Strike.
Night Strike is a community gathering that mobilizes volunteers/services, meets felt needs, and develops relationships that transform lives. It is a unique opportunity for people to spend time under the Burnside Bridge every Thursday night to love people because people matter. It is an opportunity for members of Portland’s homeless community to hang out, enjoy a hot meal, receive a free haircut or shave, have their feet washed and have their old shoes/clothes/sleeping bags replaced. It is also a chance for you to come down and share in the experience, help serve the needs of the homeless in our community, and more importantly, invest in lives and build relationships with the people you meet.
Join the Clinton Street Cabaret, Portland's oldest, best, and only Rocky Horror Picture Show shadow cast, for two nights of absolute pleasure in support of Sisters Of The Road Café! We will be supporting the Café on our April 29th and May 6th shows.
Experience the midnight show in all its splendor, complete with audience participation, callbacks, and the Clinton Street Theater live shadowcast, the Clinton Street Cabaret!
We will be asking for donations at the door, and all proceeds from prop bag sales will go to Sisters of the Road Café. Strap on your fishnets for a great cause!
Sisters Of The Road is a nonprofit Cafe in Portland’s Old Town/Chinatown neighborhood working to create systemic change that will end poverty and homelessness by providing nourishing meals in a safe, dignified space.
Since 1979 the Café has been a fixture in the community advocating for non-violent social justice and change. Sisters Of The Road exists to build authentic relationships and alleviate the hunger of isolation in an atmosphere of nonviolence and gentle personalism that nurtures the whole individual, while seeking systemic solutions that reach the roots of homelessness and poverty to end them forever.
The Clinton Street Theater, home to the longest running weekly showing of "The Rocky Horror Picture Show" in the world, has been thrilling, chilling, and fulfilling the Portland community since 1978.
Doors open at 11:30 PM Tickets are $8 Prop bags available for purchase (all sales go to Sisters Of The Road Cafe)

From EcoWatch: Granted, there were fewer people and more open spaces then, but it's still possible to grow a lot of food in urban areas, especially with composting and enriched soil techniques. Toronto plans to supply 25 percent of its fruit and vegetable production within city limits by 2025 and a study from Michigan State University concluded Detroit could grow 70 percent of its vegetables and 40 percent of its fruit on 570 vacant lots covering 5,000 acres of city land. One patch of Detroit land where 12 vacant houses were removed to grow food has supplied almost 200,000 kilograms of produce for 2,000 local families, provided volunteer experience to 8,000 residents and brought the area new investment and increased safety.
Cities needn't be wastelands of car-choked roads and pavement. Incorporating food production into ever-expanding urban areas makes cities more livable and enhances the natural systems that keep us alive and healthy.
Investing in small-scale farmers can help lift over 1 billion people out of poverty – UN report. - an estimated 2.5 billion people who manage 500 million smallholder farm households provide over 80 per cent of the food consumed in much of the developing world. Credit: IFAD
