"Movies in the Pearl" Opens at Bridgeport Brewing Co. on July 29th

BridgePort Brewing Company, Oregon's oldest craft brewery, is teaming up with Asa Flats + Lofts to present “Movies In The Pearl”, featuring shorts from local area filmmakers commissioned by the Northwest Film Center. Movie trivia will be held from 7:30-8:30 p.m. followed by a collection of short films from approximately 9 – 10 p.m. every Wednesday night from July 29th to August 26th. The events will take place between Marshall and Northrup on NW 13th Avenue just outside of BridgePort Brewpub + Bakery in the Pearl.

Free and open to the public, movies are shown in an urban outdoor theater setting where guests are encouraged to bring their own chairs, as seating is limited. BridgePort Brewpub will offer guests an assortment of freshly baked pizza by the slice as well as a selection of signature BridgePort Brews. A portion of all beverage sales on movie nights will go to benefit the NW Film Center and its mission to encourage the study, appreciation, and utilization of the moving image arts.

Movies in the Pearl Films
The programs, curated by the Northwest Film Center, include highlights of 35 Northwest Film & Video Festivals—going back to early short films of Gus Van Sant, Jim Blashfield, Will Vinton, Joan Gratz, Todd Korgan, Mitchell Rose, and John Callahan along with more recent work from Andy Blubaugh, Nick Peterson, Vanessa Renwick, Henry Selick, Christopher Tenzis, Brian Libby, Chris Lael Larson, Claudi Morgado Escanilla, Clancy Dennehy, Tomas Soderburg, Calvin Lee Reeder, Chel White, Mike Wellins, and Rob Tyler.
