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.

Part of Portland Mermaid Week!

"Understated in its subversion of, and then canny adherence to, its chosen folklore." -Nick Schager, Lessons of Darkness

"Some complexities of story will be lost on audiences not tuned to the regional Irish brogue that is the mother tongue of this little fishing community. But Christopher Doyle's dark lush photography plucks the green coast of Cork like a harp." -Jonathan F. Richards, Film.com

"It's impossibly romantic; Farrell and real-life partner Bachleda exude a tamped-down longing that intensifies as the movie draws to its conclusion." -Connie Ogle, Miami Herald

"Ondine is dipped in whimsy and might have drifted out to sea, but it's bounded on four sides by love stories - between a father and a daughter, a man and a mermaid, an actor and his co-star, and a director and his country." -Joe Williams, St. Louis Post-Dispatch
