Oregon Tradeswomen, Inc. is thrilled to announce a new benefit for members of OTI: two for one entry into general screenings at the historic Clinton Street Theater in Southeast Portland!
The mission of the theater to support the community through the power of independent film and live events. They accomplish this by creating a safe and welcoming environment where people can be true to themselves while learning about the world around them. They value direct contact with each other in an effort to build a collective, social experience, encouraging a world rich with diversity and unique points of view.
A landmark of Portland cinema history, The Clinton Street Theater is one of the oldest operating movie houses in the United States. Opening in 1915 as the Clinton, the theater became the 26th Avenue Theatre in 1945 and the Encore in 1969. In 1976 it reverted to its original name.
Famous for its long-standing exhibition of the Rocky Horror Picture Show, the theater is currently a magnet for independent / revival films. In April of 2012, the Clinton Street Theater was purchased by Roger and Lani Jo Leigh. It has a revolving cast of volunteers and film freaks who enjoy helping support its existence. Most recently, the CST has been visited by local celebrities Chuck Pahlhinuk, Tom Potter and Gus Van Sant.
