THE 10-MINUTE RULE
Seats for advance ticket and pass holders are held until 10 minutes before showtime, when any unfilled seats are released to the public. Thus, advance tickets or passes ensure that you will not have to wait in the ticket purchase line but do not guarantee a seat in the case of arrival after the 10-minute window has begun. Your early arrival also helps get screenings started promptly. We appreciate your understanding. Advance ticket holders who arrive within the 10-minute window but are not seated may exchange their tickets for another screening at the Ticket Outlet or obtain a cash refund at the theater. There are no refunds or exchanges for late arrivals or for missed screenings.

The Films of Bruce Baillie
The film center and 40 Frames (www.40frames.org)welcome legendary experimental filmmaker Bruce Baillie to Portland for two programs of his classic works. One of the seminal forces of the 1960s experimental film community in San Francisco and "New American Cinema" movement, Baillie's early films integrated a spiritual, lyrical sensibility with a sensitive regard for the qualities inherent in the film form. Co-sponsored by Portland State University English Department, Film Studies Minor.

"The career of Bruce Baillie has two central aspects which are also features of the whole American avant-garde film movement. First, his films are generally intensely poetic, lyrical evocations of person and places in which the subject matter is transformed by the subjective methods used to photograph it. Second, many of his films display a strong social awareness, describing attitudes critical towards, and alienated from, mainstream American society. In many cases, Baillie fuses these concerns within single films. Stylistically, Baillie's films are characterized by moments of haunting, evanescent beauty. An object will appear with spectacular clarity, only to dissolve away an instant later. Light itself often becomes the subject, shining across the frame or reflected from objects, suggesting a level of poetry in the subject matter that lies beyond easy interpretation. Baillie combines images with other images, and images with sound, in dense, collage-like structures. Thus, many of his films cut frequently between scenes, or superimpose objects on each other. One is constantly aware of a restlessness, an instability, which seems to result from his images' appearance and flow. It is significant, too, that many of Baillie's films contain, or are structured as, journeys." –Fred Camper
