THE AMAZING BUBBLE MAN

Louis Pearl has been thrilling audiences around the world for nearly 30 years with the art, magic, science and fun of bubbles. He is a favorite at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, where he has enjoyed eleven years of sell-out success.

Louis explores the breath-taking dynamics of bubbles, combining comedy and artistry with audience participation and enough spellbinding bubble tricks to keep everyone mesmerized. From square bubbles, bubbles inside bubbles, fog-filled bubbles, giant bubbles, bubble volcanoes, tornados and trampolines to people inside bubbles, the Amazing Bubble Man conjures shrieks of laughter and gasps of amazement from all ages. 

"Greatest bubble show on Earth." - SFGate.com

“This show will rearrange your molecular structure” (SE Examiner, Portland OR)

“The range and beauty of the effects really has to be seen to be believed and anyone who doubts that bubbles can fill an hour of stage time will be very pleasantly surprised.”  (Fest Magazine, Edinburgh)

“The thought….that I almost stayed home tonight instead of coming here….is dreadful”  (Audience Member, Portland OR)

Special Admission

ADVANCE: $10 general admission and $6 for children under 12. 

$15 and $8 at the door. Babes in arms and lap children get in for free.

There is a $1.75 service fee for the advance adult tickets and a $.99 service fee on the advance children's tickets. This is not paid to the theater, but to Seat Engine, the online system I use. If you've ever been to the theater, you know I am small, and I can only offer this service by using an outside provider. Thanks for understanding.

Church of Film is a weekly gathering for the reverence and worship of cinema. Our hope is to bring the long lost, forgotten, overlooked, obscure or unavailable to a hungry audience unable to get their fill from the local theater offerings. And in so doing, in the cozy darkness of our vintage theater, we build a like-minded community of the curious and the cine-obsessed. All are welcome, as are your creative suggestions.

Other locations include Century Bar on Sandy Boulevard and the North Star Ballroom. Check the CofF Facebook page for more information about other screenings.

Church of Film presents Russian Fairy Tale Animation

Vasilisa the Beautiful

A collection of wondrous short fairy tale films from the Soviet Union’s best animation studio, Soyuzmultfilm! Given free reign stylistically, and with no profit motive, Soviet animators created one of the most productive and groundbreaking animation studios in the world to rival Walt Disney! While many of the fairy tales echo Disney’s choice of material, Russian animators employed a broader technical diversity and approaches, and often more abstract, beautiful, and phantasmagoric representations.
