Earth Girls Are Easy

clinton street resistance series logo

We are happy to announce the Clinton St. Resistance series is back! Here's how it works:

  • On select Mondays we offer discounted admission to films in the hope that as many people as possible will attend.
  • Proceeds after licensing costs from these screenings will be totaled at the end of the month and donated to a non-profit or community organization which we believe is doing good work in Portland and beyond.

That's it! You get to watch a great film for cheap and get an easy way to support an awesome organization that is supporting our community.

In June, we've selected the non-profit Black & Pink—a prison abolitionist organization dedicated to abolishing the criminal punishment system and liberating LGBTQIA2S+ people and people living with HIV/AIDS who are affected by that system through advocacy, support, and organizing.

In July, we've selected Sisters of the Road—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.

"A lighthearted and goofy musical comedy about a love affair between an extraterrestrial and a manicurist." -Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times

"It is a joyfully chaotic and wildly uneven work that shows Mr. Temple's roots in music videos." -Caryn James, New York Times

"Earth Girls Are Easy manages to both subvert and give in to the conventions of its time, creating a work so singularly absurd and campy, you can't not enjoy it." -Saffron Maeve, Film Inquiry

In this musical comedy, Valerie (Geena Davis) is dealing with her philandering fiancé, Ted (Charles Rocket), when she finds that a trio of aliens (Jeff Goldblum, Jim Carrey, Damon Wayans) have crashed their spaceship into her swimming pool. Once the furry beings are shaved at her girlfriend's salon, the women discover three handsome men underneath. After absorbing the native culture via television, the spacemen are ready to hit the dating scene in 1980s Los Angeles.
