Clinton Street Theatre is a cool place to relax and beat the summer heat with great entertainment. It’s air-conditioned, and alter-abled accessible too. They feature movies, music and live theatre just like they have for the past hundred years and is a SE neighborhood landmark. Here are several July events.
• Friday-Sunday July 19-21 at 7 pm – Zilla and Zoe. A comedy directed by Jessica Scalise. Ten-year-old Zoe obsessed with making horror films, has a deadline for a contest coming up. She is determined to win, but her father orders her to stop making horror films and instead, film her sister’s wedding. To win the contest, she will have to turn her sister’s wedding into a horror film. This indie comedy is about family, weddings, the city of Portland and the importance of accepting ourselves for who we really are.
• Thursday, July 25, 7 pm – World Premiere of Gracias, Santiago! Carnival De Santiago Cuba, directed by Andrew Pritchard and Oryan Peterson-Jones. Portland residents Pritchard and Peterson-Jones, spent five weeks in Cuba filming music-related documentaries. Gracias, Santiago! is a documentary about the Carnaval in Santiago de Cuba, one of the largest Carnavals in the world. Due to decades of friction between Cuba and the US, Americans have not had the opportunity to experience this first-hand and the film takes you into the midst of the music and revelry. The directors will be on hand for a Q & A after the screening.
