Venice: Infinitely Avant-Garde
August 7 & 10
Venice: Infinitely Avant-Garde(2022)
THIS DOCUMENTARY EXPLORES VENICE AND ITS OPENNESS TO THE WORLD, AND TO THE FUTURE, THROUGH ITS ART AND ITS MUSEUMS, ITS CANALS AND ITS NARROW STREETS.
This tour of the city takes in masterpieces by Tiepolo, Canaletto, Rosalba Carriera and the intellectuals who fell in love with Venice: from Canova to Goethe, Byron to Walter Scott, down to the great Hollywood stars drawn to its unique, yearly Film Festival. 1600 years after its legendary foundation, Venice continues to be unique: for its urban environment, made of stone, earth and water, and for its history, that has entered the realm of legend.
But above all, Venice is unique for its identity, which combines contrasting DNA blueprints: the charm of decadence and the excitement of being on the cutting edge. Cosmopolitan from the outset, Venice has always been a city of commercial and cultural exchange with the East and, taking into account its fragility, has always had vision and been inspired by the future.

Jodie Comer (Killing Eve) makes her West End debut in the UK premiere of Suzie Miller’s award-winning play.

Tessa is a young, brilliant barrister. She has worked her way up from working class origins to be at the top of her game; defending; cross examining and winning. An unexpected event forces her to confront the lines where the patriarchal power of the law, burden of proof and morals diverge.

Prima Facie takes us to the heart of where emotion and experience collide with the rules of the game.

Justin Martin directs this solo tour de force, captured live from the intimate Harold Pinter Theatre in London’s West End.

WarGames
August 19 & 20 & 21 & 22 & 23 & 24 & 25
WarGames(2022)
Filmed in the Pacific Northwest Series.

A potent and thoroughly ‘80s cold war thriller.

Matthew Broderick is an old fashioned teenage computer nerd who hacks into the US missile-defense system and accidentally triggers a simulation that threatens to end life on earth. Along with his girlfriend, Ally Sheedy, Broderick has to go on the run from the military and track down the system's antisocial creator by using landlines, dot-matrix printers and gigantic floppy discs.

Why, just in the opening scene of this 1983 reminder about the potential (inevitable?) nuclear annihilation of all mankind, two missile commanders (Michael Madsen and John Spencer!) are ordered to launch a world-ending bomb and nearly kill each other arguing what to do.

It's a classic Cold War nightmare scenario, and even if that's all WARGAMES had going for it, it would still be a potent reminder of the technology that's still out there waiting to kill us all. But this movie is also about other timeless themes such as internet privacy, the arrogance of power and the perennially potent "growing up in the 1980s.”

Primary filming of WarGames took place in various locations around Washington State.
Rated PG

August 26 & 27 & 28 & 29 & 30 & 31 & September 1
Short Circuit (1986)(2022)
Part of our Filmed in the Pacific Northwest Series.

The '80s were the heyday for movie robots, from cute droids like R2-D2 to cold-hearted killers like the Terminator and ED-209.

But none of the decade's big screen robots have a place in our heart like Johnny 5, the mischievous machine from Short Circuit.

After a lightning bolt zaps a robot named Number 5, the lovable machine starts to think he’s human and escapes the lab. Hot on his trail is his designer, Newton, who hopes to get to Number 5 before the military does. In the meantime, a spunky animal lover mistakes the robot for an alien and takes him in, teaching her new guest about life on Earth.

Primarily filmed in Astoria, Oregon but also at Bonneville Dam, Cascade Locks, Portland and Crown Point.

Goonies, The
September 2 & 3 & 4 & 5
The Goonies(2022)
Part of our Filmed in the Pacific Northwest Series.

Let’s face it, THE GOONIES never gets old (and they never say “die”). With its endearing cast of quirky kids and a plot filled with swashbuckling adventure, it serves as the ultimate fantasy for anyone who feels stuck in the mundane humdrum of everyday life.

The Goonies shot almost entirely in sequence in Astoria, Oregon on a 5-month shooting schedule. Other locations, like the tunnels and the cave with One-Eyed Willy’s pirate ship, were shot on massive sound stages in Burbank, California.

National Theatre Live: Straight Line Crazy
September 10 & 14
National Theatre Live: Straight Line Crazy(2022)
Ralph Fiennes (Antony & Cleopatra) leads the cast in David Hare’s (Skylight) blazing account of the most powerful man in New York, a master manipulator whose legacy changed the city forever.

For forty uninterrupted years, Robert Moses exploited those in office through a mix of charm and intimidation. Motivated at first by a determination to improve the lives of New York City’s workers, he created parks, bridges and 627 miles of expressway to connect the people to the great outdoors.

Faced with resistance by protest groups campaigning for a very different idea of what the city should become, will the weakness of democracy be exposed in the face of his charismatic conviction?

Captured live at the Bridge Theatre in London, Nicholas Hytner directs this exhilarating new play.

A-Ha True North
September 15
A-Ha True North(2022)
90km above the Arctic Circle, Norway’s very own a-ha recorded their first collection of music since 2015’s Cast in Steel. “True North is a letter from a-ha, from the Arctic Circle, a poem from the far north of Norway,” says Magne Furuholmen. Accompanied by a film, the conceptual collection combines the band’s visions and the talent of Norwegian orchestra, Arctic Philharmonic, to weave a narrative showing our collective connection to the environment. In recurring vignettes, the multidimensional film follows this narrative arc through actors portraying life in the North as well as documenting Magne, Morten and Paul recording music over two days in Bodø, Norway. This is a unique release from a-ha, a multimedia experience with a powerful narrative.

October 22
Suspicion (1941)(2022)
Presented by Camas Antiques.

Charming scoundrel Johnnie Aysgarth (Cary Grant) woos wealthy but plain Lina McLaidlaw (Joan Fontaine), who runs away with him despite the warnings of her disapproving father (Cedric Hardwicke). After their marriage, Johnnie's risky financial ventures cause Lina to suspect he's becoming involved in unscrupulous dealings. When his dear friend and business partner, Beaky (Nigel Bruce), dies under suspicious circumstances on a business trip, she fears her husband might kill her for her inheritance.

"At times even the audience believes as the woman does. At other times doubt intrudes. This is where Suspicion shines as especially deft and adroit, and loyal also to Hitchcock precedent for keeping both characters and spectators guessing."-Los Angeles Times
