Elektro Moskva @ 5th Avenue Cinema | Free Popcorn, Exploring the Underground Soviet Culture of Synthesizers Under Lenin’s Rule, Free Admission for Portland State University Students

Russian with English subtitles

FRIDAY, MAY 17TH AT 7:00PM & 9:30PM
SATURDAY, MAY 18TH AT 7:00PM & 9:30PM
SUNDAY, MAY 19TH AT 3:00PM
