I've mentioned it a bunch already—here, here, here—and I don't really feel like going into all of it all over again, so I'll just say this: You know part of what makes Portland awesome? That we have a slew of independent movie theaters, not just shitty corporate chains. And some of those independent theaters show movies for cheap, and also have beer, and are great places to watch movies—with dates, with friends, with family, with neighbors, with your stupid self, whatever. These are the kind of theaters that make Portland a better place to see movies than other places. These are the kind of theaters we should keep in business.
The Academy, one of SE Portland's best theaters, needs some help. Help them if you can, and do so in the next nine hours.
