“Lorraine Hansberry was a Black writer, communist, feminist, lesbian, and outspoken trailblazer at the height of the Civil Rights Movement. She led an active life, befriending James Baldwin, inspiring Nina Simone, breaking barriers from Broadway to Hollywood, being monitored by the FBI, and seeking love on her own terms, all before her untimely death at age 34. Drawing upon multiple archives, the film goes deep into the stage and screen productions of Hansberry’s landmark work A Raisin in the Sun, about at Black family in her hometown Chicago. We hear from Sidney Poitier, Ruby Dee, Louis Gossett Jr., and others involved in its productions. For audiences who know Hansberry mainly for that work, Strain deepens our understanding of the writer’s history, politics, and personal life. The film title comes from Hansberry’s view that “one can not live with sighted eyes and feeling heart and not know or react to the miseries which afflict this world.”—Toronto International Film Festival. Tracy Heather Strain will be on hand to talk about her film.

Escapism Portland is proud to introduce our seventh escape room experience: Malice Manor, Portland’s only haunted escape room!

Secrets can be hidden, but never destroyed. This was the harsh lesson learned by the members of the Randle family, whose cursed bloodline came to a tragic and mysterious end nearly a hundred years ago. Since then, tales of ghostly voices, doors that open themselves, and visions of a little girl have haunted the home. The locals call it Malice Manor and avoid it at all costs, though certain brave souls have ventured inside and lived to regret it. Now it’s up to you to unravel the mysteries of the Randle family, and of the child whose soul remains trapped there.

This haunted experience is best suited for 2-10 players. Please visit escapismportland.com for bookings!
