It's Happening Tonight!

Posted by Alison Hallett on Wed, Jan 2, 2013 at 2:13 PM


PROMISED LAND—When a natural gas company swoops in on a small town, locals are torn between environmental concerns and the promise of a big payday. Gus Van Sant's newest, Promised Land, is definitely cannon fodder for anyone who thinks Hollywood is too liberal, but the cast is great: John Krasinski is perfect as a smug environmentalist, Matt Damon does a solid everyman impersonation, and Frances McDormand is a goddamn national treasure.

Various theaters, see Film times for details

MORONI—South Park creators/geniuses Trey Parker and Matt Stone became the toast of Broadway with The Book of Mormon—the most popular, award-winning, critically raved-about play since Phantom Cats of the Producers. The Portland run sold out in hours, so if you're incredibly wealthy—or lucky enough to win a ticket lottery—you can see what everyone's talking about! EH
Keller Auditorium, 222 SW Clay, Tues Jan 1-Fri Jan 4, 7:30 pm, Sat Jan 5, 2 & 7 pm, Sun Jan 6, 1 & 6:30 pm, show up 2.5 hours before each performance to enter into ticket lottery to win a chance to buy two tickets for $25 cash each (this system is ludicrous, but what else are you going to do?)
