Hitting the Jackpot in Portland

19 09 2011

On Tuesday September 27th, the film is being shown at the 8th annual Jackpot Music and Film Festival in Portland, OR.  The free fest is sponsored by Jackpot Records, a wonderful Portland record store (there are actually two) that are a great resource for records of all kinds, and also sponsor this very special festival:

We spend months wandering the celluloid highway looking for masterpieces. We’ve landed some genuine Portland premiers, had extremely colorful director appearances, and evaporated the minds of young and old alike with features that genuflect before no genre. We hope that you get as excited about this year’s week of wonders as we are.

The Bagdad Theater: “This marvelous relic of Hollywood’s Golden Age is a movie palace full of wonder and surprises. For nearly four generations now, the Bagdad’s Mediterranean/neon persona and daily films have made it an icon of Portland’s vibrant Hawthorne District. The interior is an attraction in and of itself, with barreled arches, ornate wrought-iron fixtures, brilliant mosaics and painted Mediterranean designs and characters.”

“Music and film often have a symbiotic relationship, as legions of great music documentaries attest. This stuff is priceless, and not only that, it’s free. Get to these screenings early if you want a seat.” THE PORTLAND TRIBUNE

I will be there, so if you’re in that part of the world hope to see you, and also expect to have some other exciting news from my Portland visit, but not quite ready to write about it just yet!

Many thanks to Isaac Slusarenko of Jackpot for making this all happen!
