X The Band @ Crystal Ballroom | Rock, Punk Rock

X
7:45 p.m. doors | All Ages

Three decades after the inception of X, one thing is clear: X was not only one of the most influential bands to crash out of the punk movement of the late ‘ 70s, but the band’ s music continues to be sonically groundbreaking today.

Mannequin @ 5th Avenue Cinema | Free Popcorn, 35mm Film, Portland 2017 Thanksgiving Weekend Events

Mannequin
Friday 7:PM & 9:30PM
Saturday 7pm & 9:30PM
Sunday 3pm
More info: 5thavecinema.com

SYNOPSIS:

To those that appreciate the aesthetic that 1980s consumerist culture has to offer, this film is for you. Mannequin is the definition of aesthetically pleasing with its pastel mall scenes, chic holographic clothing, and funky hairstyles —— a modern retelling of the mythology of Pygmalion, a sculptor who carved a woman and fell in love with her. Andrew McCarthy is our 1980s Pygmalion, Jonathan Switcher, who is surprised to find his work of art, a mannequin in a window display (Kim Cattrall), come to life. Despite the terrible reviews received from critics since its original release, Mannequin satisfyingly embodies the decade in which it was made. There’s no better way to watch this 1980s wet dream than on the big screen. (more…)
