The City in Cinema Live in Portland, January 25, 2015

Screen Shot 2015-01-05 at 7.21.26 AM

On Sunday, January 25, 2015, I’ll appear live at Portland, Oregon’s Hollywood Theatre to give “Portland and Los Angeles: The Cities in Cinema”, a talk on and a screening of my City in Cinema video essays. The evening will include not just new, never-before-seen video essays on Los Angeles films, but the world premiere of Portland: The City in Cinema, a long-form exploration of the Oregonian metropolis and the roles it has played in such movies as Cold WeatherZero Effect, and My Own Private Idaho. I’ll also discuss the contrast in cinematic depictions of the City of Angels and the City of Roses, so make sure to bring along all your thoughts on the matter, urbanist-cinephiles.

You can find time, location, and ticket details at the Hollywood Theatre’s site. (And if you didn’t catch it back in 2012, why not have a listen to my Notebook on Cities and Culture interview with head programmer Dan Halsted?)
