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.

Friday Film Club

 

The theme of our second Friday Film Club discussion series is PORTRAITS—literal, narrative, existential and cinematic. Friday Film Club screenings are presented monthly when the Portland Art Museum’s galleries are open late on Friday evenings. Each screening is accompanied by a post-film discussion led by Film Center staff and Art Museum docents, in which a work from the Art Museum galleries is utilized to spark dialogue and debate about the film. Special Admission: $5. 

Sponsored by Pacific University Master of Fine Arts in Writing.

LAURA
DIRECTOR: OTTO PREMINGER
US, 1944

 

Widely hailed as one of the most influential and expertly crafted film noirs ever made, LAURA is also one of the greatest products to come out of the classical Hollywood studio system. The film was produced under difficult conditions at 20th Century Fox under the supervision of legendary producer Darryl F. Zanuck, who held a long-standing grudge against director Otto Preminger. Despite these difficulties, however, the film became an immediate critical and box office smash upon release. Laura Hunt (Gene Tierney), a young advertising executive, turns up dead one evening and cavalier New York City detective Mark McPherson (Dana Andrews) is assigned to the case. McPherson begins investigating those closest to Laura, including her mentor, eccentric dandy Waldo Lydecker (Clifton Webb), and her fiancé, soft-spoken southerner Shelby Carpenter (Vincent Price). The investigation leads McPherson through Laura’s diaries and letters as well as a series of rose-tinted stories recounted by Waldo, Shelby, and others—all of whom have something to hide. Against the jaded cop’s best instincts, he finds himself falling in love with a ghost... watched over all the while by the haunting and transcendent portrait of Laura hanging on her living room wall. Winner of the 1945 Academy Award for Best Cinematography. (88 mins.)
