THE DEATH OF STALIN
Like many small businesses in Portland…
…and across the country, Cinema 21 has been forced close by Covid-19 since March. While we’ve found ways to bring in a small amount a revenue, it has not covered our fixed operating expenses. Until very recently, we hoped to reopen on July 10. But now that appears unlikely and there’s considerable doubt that Portland will move into Phase II of reopening in the near term.
The films are:
Werner Herzog’s CAVE OF FORGOTTEN DREAMS in 3D, the survival docudrama TOUCHING THE VOID, Alfonso Cuarón’s bawdy but tender coming-of-age road trip film Y TU MAMÁ TAMBIÉN, and the satirical black comedy THE DEATH OF STALIN.

We are dedicated to theatrical exhibition, but while we are shut down, we’ve partnered with distributors and filmmakers to offer streaming of first-run indie and art film. This will help support the theater through this crisis. We’ll share in the revenue with distributors.

JOHN LEWIS: GOOD TROUBLE
Using present-day interviews with Lewis, now 80 years old, Porter explores his childhood experiences, his inspiring family and his fateful meeting with Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. in 1957. In addition to her interviews with Lewis and his family, Porter’s primarily cinéma verité film also includes interviews with political leaders, Congressional colleagues, and other people who figure prominently in his life.
In 1981, it was still illegal to be gay in France. Today, same-sex marriage is recognized and has paved the way for legalizing the adoption of children by LGBTQ families. Proud tells the story of Charles, Victor and Diego, three generations of the same family who represent the seismic social changes that took place in just three decades.
When he was only eight, Guor Mading Maker (known as Guor Marial) ran from capture in war-torn Sudan to eventually seek safety in the US. In his new life, Maker began running again, participating in high school track and field and eventually becoming a sensation and qualifying for the 2012 Olympics. But because the newly formed South Sudan was not recognized by the International Olympic Committee, Maker had to fight to compete independently, refusing to run for Sudan and taking a stand against its oppression.
