We are opening up little by little over the coming weeks and months. Please do your part to keep us all safe, so wear a mask and socially distance when in public and GET YOUR VACCINE. Everyone over the age of 16 is now eligible in Oregon.
First up, LET'S DO THE TIME WARP AGAIN!!!!
ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW @ the historic Clinton Street Theater has BIY SHOWS every weekend (COVID numbers willing) for a maximum of 50 PEOPLE. You need to purchase your ticket in advance, and, like the bars and restaurants in our state, we are required to close by 11pm. This means we still have Rocky Horror at midnight, only it's GVT (Greenwich Village Time). Doors at 8pm, pre-show at 8:30pm, and the movie begins at 9pm.
Emcee Nathan is your host for the preshow, and each week we have a very special burlesque performance!
Our food concessions have always consisted of only popcorn and candy, so, you are welcome to bring your own snacks and theater-approved props. Please remember that we're short staffed, and don't throw enough rice on the floor, as my mother would say, to feed an army.
Dress up!!! Wear a costume!!! Don't be shy; LET YOUR FREAK FLAG FLY!!!!
Come see TETSUO: THE IRON MAN....Thursday, May 6 @ 8pm; Friday, May 7 @ 9:30pm; Sunday, May 9 @ 4 & 7:30pm
...combines early Lynch's monochrome industrial landscapes, Cronenberg's body horror, Ballard's obsession with crashes and wounds, and Svankmajer's frenetic stop-motion oddity (and staccato editing), but it nonetheless remains a singular monstrosity...

COMING NEXT WEEK: THE CLEANERS on May 12 @ 7pm
When you post something on the web, can you be sure it stays there? Enter a hidden shadow industry of digital cleaning, where the Internet rids itself of what it doesn’t like. Who is controlling what we see… and what we think? Find out in THE CLEANERS, a documentary focused primarily on the work of digital cleaners, while also looking at the related debate in the USA.
Presented in partnership with the Portland German Film Festival as part of it Monthly Screening Series.
The Historic Clinton Street Theater is open for private rentals of up to 15 people. If you are interested, please contact us: firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you can't come to the theater in person, and you want to make sure we survive, you can support us in a few different ways:
Dan responded to the Covid crisis by creating a mind-bending performance of eye-popping online magic called SHAZOOM! It’s up close and personal, and it beams from Dan’s Magic Parlor directly into your home, office or school. Interested? Just say the magic word—SHAZOOM!—and contact Dan. The virtual party runs approximately an hour.

We live in unprecedented times.
With COVID-19 wreaking havoc across the world and disproportionately affecting people of color, federal relief failing to reach the most vulnerable businesses and national outrage over systemic racism and police brutality, Black owned businesses in Portland are hurting. These businesses are part of what makes Portland great and your support is more important now than ever.
