Tomorrow Theater Opens on SE Division St.

World-class artists bring the curtain up on Tomorrow Theater, a new space devoted to expanding what constitutes cinema, art and multimedia storytelling, opening Friday, November 3. The 250-seat theater’s programming is designed to inspire and surprise audiences and artists no longer content to be contained to a single medium, label or art form.
Opening week features legendary artist David Byrne taking over the theater with an interactive and live presentation of Reasons to be Cheerful, in a special Portland-themed edition. Founded by Byrne, Reasons to be Cheerful, is a nonprofit online magazine which aims to inspire curiosity about how the world can be better and to encourage people to be part of that change. He’ll guide audiences through the stories that inspire him to think differently on how to change for whom, by whom and how we approach the future.
Programming for November unfolds around the theme “unorthodox,” which celebrates artists pushing boundaries and challenging the status quo. In addition to Byrne’s performances, there’s FAM JAM//Missing Link Immersive, for the whole family, Friday, November 10, 6 pm. The film from Laika features the charismatic Sir Lionel Frost, who considers himself to be the world’s foremost investigator of myths and monsters. The trouble is, none of his small-minded, high-society peers seem to recognize this. The night includes behind-the-scenes goodness, coloring book sets and real puppets from the film. Tickets are free for both adults and kids, but must be reserved in advance (limit five per family).
For the 21+ crowd, there’s Blind Date Night with A24 Sunday, November 12, 6 pm. This one is for Nicolas Cage fans and surrealists, with hapless family man Paul Matthews discovering his life turned upside down when millions of strangers start seeing him in their dreams. When his nighttime appearances take a nightmarish turn, Paul is forced to navigate his newfound stardom. Is it a dream? Or is it a new reality? Tickets are free, but must be reserved in advance (limit two per household).
The diverse and eclectic screenings, events and happenings take place 24 nights a month, with many of them being one-night-only events. Find more information, a full line up of shows and tickets at tomorrowtheater.org. The theater is located at 3530 SE Division St.
