Every Monday night, come to the Clinton Street Theater, enjoy a film on the big screen (the way it should be seen!), make friends, have a few laughs, scream, cry and raise money for a good cause.

THE DARK CRYSTAL

Crystal is a miraculous rush of innovation and storytelling patience, and, in the last 25 years, the film has grown from a 1982 misfire, to a cult wonder, to a bona-fide classic that's timeless in stature and masterful in execution.

pear-mentorTonight's nonprofit partner is p:ear, an organization that builds positive relationships with homeless and transitional youth through education, art and recreation to affirm personal worth and create more meaningful and healthier lives.

On any given day in Portland, there are hundreds of homeless youth on the street. For the individuals affected, homelessness is personally devastating. For our community, the financial and opportunity costs are infinite. Together, as a community, we can work together to create solutions. We can effect lasting, systemic change.

At p:ear, our work starts with the realities of today. It ends when young people find and embrace tomorrow. Our beauty—our core essence—is in everything in between. It’s in the kids, their daily experience, their struggles, and triumphs. It’s in their journey. We believe every homeless youth has a future.

And we believe that together we can change lives.

We know it’s possible. How? Our p:ear youth show us every day. At p:ear, we meet today’s needs. We offer love, build trust, and create hope. And then, through mentorship and experience, we support youth on their journey to tomorrow.

Another planet, another time. 1000 years ago the mysterious Dark Crystal was damaged by one of the Urskeks and an age of chaos has began! The evil race of grotesque birdlike lizards the Skeksis, gnomish dragons who rule their fantastic planet with an iron claw. Meanwhile the orphan Jen, raised in solitude by a race of the peace-loving wizards called the Mystics, embarks on a quest to find the missing shard of the Dark Crystal which gives the Skesis their power and restore the balance of the universe.
