#OregonMade “Point Break” at the Tomorrow Theatre Feb 24

To welcome in the King Tide tubes and help the ex-presidents finance an Endless Summer, the Tomorrow Theatre is screening “Point Break” as part of its “Night of 1000 Swayze’s” programming.  Join us to celebrate the rain of the Oregon Coast (specifically Indian Beach in Ecola State Park and downtown Wheeler) with Katherine Bigelow’s classic surf-thriller.

Oregon is the home to a drenched Swayze/Reeves fight on the north coast sands while waiting for a closed out set that came in from Hawaii but plays as Australia (our locations are just that flexible).

#OregonMade Doc “Downwind” Featured on OPB

OPB recently interviewed the filmmakers and featured participants of the locally produced documentary “Downwind.”

“Downwind” looks at how miscalculated wind forecasts, government proclamations that radiation exposure wasn’t a serious health threat, and revelations from now-declassified documents referring to those who lived near the test site as a “low use segment of the population” potentially contributed to illnesses suffered by Americans who were never warned about the dangers of living near the test sites. It was produced and co-directed by Portlander Mark Shapiro.

Netflix has just closed a deal in the $17 million range for worldwide rights to It’s What’s Inside, the thriller written and directed by Greg Jardin that has been one of the Sundance Film Festival’s buzziest titles.
