Today At The Clinton Street Theater
Division/Clinton Street Fair Celebration of THE WIZARD OF OZ
"....if I ever go looking for my heart's desire again, I won't look any further than my own back yard. Because if it isn't there, I never really lost it to begin with!"
After the parade and the fair, stick around for a special all ages "Sing Out!" of the beloved musical THE WIZARD OF OZ.
Share with friends and family this classic tale of friendship, adventure, transformation, and the eternal truth that "there is no place like home."
Costumes and fancy dress are encouraged and all dressed up guests can join in a costume parade before the film at 2pm.
In this charming film based on the popular L. Frank Baum stories, Dorothy and her dog Toto are caught in a tornado's path and somehow end up in the land of Oz. Here she meets some memorable friends and foes in her journey to meet the Wizard of Oz who everyone says can help her return home and possibly grant her new friends their goals of a brain, heart and courage.

We've heard tell that a bunch of drunken Santas might be dropping in on us. Not sure what we'll be doing, but it will be legal and involve a reindeer or two.
Please wear a Santa suit, or some part of it, or some sort of weather-appropriate version of Santa, Christmas themed costumery, or at the very least something that will make the story better for any one walking by in the neighborhood.
Interested? Intrigued? Come on by!

The Rocky Horror Picture Show "BIY"
Every Saturday night since1978, the historic Clinton Street Theater has played host to The Rocky Horror Picture Show.
Before Gaga told us it was o.k. to be "Born This Way" we had the fishnet clad sexual liberation of Frank-n-furter teling us, "Don't Dream it, Be it."
It is in the spirit of over 30 years of this liberation that we invite you to come "Be It" Yourself.
The Rocky B.I.Y. nights turn the attention on YOU the audience.
You bring the costumes!
You bring the dance numbers!
You bring the fun!
So unpack that French Maid's dress from that box behind the kids' old toys and dust off your tap shoes. Whether you are are a virgin or a veteran you'll delight in this cinematic right of passage and cherished Portland tradition.
Doors open at 11:30pm
We're not going to explain this one - you just have to see it.
