This season will feature 11 concerts and 7 master classes of some of the greatest guitarists in the world including living legends Pepe Romero of Spain on February 22 and Carlos Barbosa Lima of Brasil on March 8 . The series will also feature international stars such as Ana Vidovic, Judicael Perroy, Benjamin Verdery, Eduardo Fernandez, and David Leisner .

The new venue will be the historic Eliot Center located in the cultural rich center of downtown Portland. This charming facility takes up an entire city block and features multiple spaces perfect for the series such as the intimate Eliot Chapel (featuring outstanding acoustics and room for up to 250 people), the elegant Main Street Sanctuary (seats 700 and has been recently renovated with upgraded sound and seating) and the charming Channing and Fireside rooms which are perfect for master classes.

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. (more…)

Limelight (35mm) @ 5th Avenue Cinema | Free Popcorn, See One of Charlie Chaplin’s Last Films, Free Admission for Portland State University Students

From Our Sponsors


More info: 5thavecinema.com

Limelight (35mm)
Dir. Charles Chaplin (1952); USA, 137m
Starring: Charles Chaplin, Claire Bloom, Nigel Bruce

Limelight, one of Charlie Chaplin’s last films, can be considered autobiographical in its nature. The film follows a washed-up stage actor who performs as a clown named Calvero. As times change Calvero is forgotten and his act is seen as obsolete. Around the time of the film’s release in 1952, Chaplin’s other films received poor reviews. Limelight is a poetic farewell to his most beloved character, the tramp, and to slapstick. We see Chaplin come to terms with his life through Calvero and the results are a strong mixture of melodrama and hilarity. Perhaps the most touching moment is when Chaplin is joined by fellow silent film comedian Buster Keaton, where the two perform a sentimental ode to the slapstick routines they once popularized.

About 5th Avenue Cinema
Oregon’s only student run cinema has been operating non-profit since 1989. Our goals are to provide further education for PSU students interested in film, as well as a fun place for people to see something they wouldn’t ordinarily get to see on the big screen. The general public is always invited to attend and there is FREE POPCORN at every show. Our feature films are presented on 35mm film, with the occasional screening on our rare Norelco 16mm projector.
