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.

Top Down
Join us five stories up atop the Hotel deLuxe's parking structure (729 SW 15th Ave) to enjoy the magic of a balmy summer night in Portland (yes, we have them) with 360 degree, moonlit views of the city at its most urban and urbane. The evenings begin at 8pm with live music and refreshments. Gracie's Restaurant will offer easy-to-juggle meals, snacks and cocktails, and additional beverages will be available from TAZO and Sierra Nevada Brewing. The screenings start at dusk-around 9pm-depending on the somewhat predictable, but ever-changing, whims of darkness. Bring your favorite portable chair or blanket, but please, no pets or outside food, or drink. Admission $7. No Student, Senior, or PAM member discounts. Sponsored by Hotel deLuxe, Willamette Week, 97.1CharlieFM, 94/7FM Alternative Portland, KPSU, TAZO and Sierra Nevada Brewing.

WESTWORLD
DIRECTOR: MICHAEL CRICHTON
US
"Welcome to Westworld, where nothing can go wrong." A futuristic amusement park becomes a deathtrap when the androids begin to run amok. You can contemplate the psychosocial ramifications of technology out of control, or consider the American predisposition to indulgence, or you can just enjoy Yul Brynner's stoic performance as the whacked-out android sheriff in this 70s camp classic. ( 88 min )

THE KILLING
DIRECTOR: STANLEY KUBRICK
US
After spending five years in Alcatraz, Johnny Clay (Sterling Hayden) decides that if he's going to commit crimes, the risk had better be worth the punishment-so he masterminds a brilliant scheme to steal $2 million from a local racetrack. The beauty of the plan is that it's foolproof and "no one will get hurt..." Hitchcockian suspense and a fresh take on noir enrich this classic heist film from a young Kubrick, subject of a NWFC retrospective indoors) through August. ( 85 min )

HEROIC TRIO
DIRECTOR: JOHNNY TO
HONG KONG
The all-female, ass-kicking "Heroic Trio" are Tung (Wonder Woman), Chat (Thief Catcher), and Ching (Invisible Woman), played by three of Hong Kong's hottest action stars: Anitia Mui, Michelle Yeoh, and Maggie Cheung. Thrill to the adventures of the three super heroines-initially enemies-who team up to defeat an ancient monster that is stealing children of royal blood in an attempt to find a new Chinese emperor. With high- kicking, gravity-defying martial arts, syrupy melodrama, and swaddled infants flying in peril, what more could you ask? ( 88 min )

SULLIVAN'S TRAVELS
DIRECTOR: PRESTON STURGES
US
The King of screwball comedy spins the yarn of John Sullivan, a fellow film director of highly successful and frivolous fare (SO LONG SARONG, HEY-HEY IN THE HAY and ANTS IN YOUR PANTS OF 1939), who experiences a sudden pang of social consciousness. What the world needs, he surmises, is a serious epic examining the grim state of the extra-cinematic world: O BROTHER, WHERE ART THOU? will be his masterpiece. "This truly brilliant serio-comedy, which makes fun of films with 'messages,' carries its own paradoxical moral and its note of tragedy. Laughter, it says, is 'better than nothing in this cock-eyed caravan.' "-Bowsley Crowther, NEW YORK TIMES, 1941. ( 90 min )

KANSAS CITY BOMBER
DIRECTOR: JERROLD FREEDMAN
US
Roughhousing Roller Derby diva K. C. Carr (Raquel Welch)-"the hottest thing on wheels"-is reluctantly traded by her Kansas City team to slam for the "Portland Loggers." As divorcée K. C. tries to balance her climb to B stardom with the strains of single motherhood and sexual harassment, the difficulties of a gritty, nomadic lifestyle take their toll. Glimpses of Portland in the 70s (The Expo Center, Kenton Club and more) and the seedy world of a once-hot but dying sport provide atmospheric backdrop for hard-hitting, over-the-top derby action. BOMBER boasts a standout performance from Welch (who did her own skating, and even broke her wrist!) and an early glimpse of a nine-year-old Jodi Foster as her daughter. ( 99 min )


The Rose City Rollers will be in attendance! Music: Sexton Blake

BEACH PARTY
DIRECTOR: WILLIAM ASHER
US
"It's what happens when 10,000 kids meet on 5,000 beach blankets!" Anthropology Professor Robert Orwell Sutwell (Bob Cummings) and his secretary Marianne (Dorothy Malone) are studying the sex habits of teenagers. The surfing teens, led by Frankie and Dee Dee (Frankie Avalon and Annette Funicello) don't manage to accomplish much mating (this is a family film, after all) but they sing, battle bikers and dance to the fabulous surf twang of Dick Dale and The Del Tones. Cheese and beefcake in equal measure, with quick cameos from Vincent Price and Beach Boy Brian Wilson. ( 101 min )
