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.

MY DOG TULIP
DIRECTOR: PAUL & SANDRA FERLINGER
US, 2010

Christopher Plummer, Isabella Rossellini, and the late Lynn Redgrave provide the voices in the Ferlingers’ witty and touching animated film which author J.R. Ackerley’s 14-year relationship with an unruly, undisciplined, but beautiful Alsatian bitch. The distinguished British man of letters was well into middle age when Tulip came to him, and to his surprise, the dog turned out to be the love of his life: “She offered me what I had never found in my life with humans: constant, single-hearted, incorruptible, uncritical devotion.” With its bittersweet nostalgia and frank observation of canine mating and bodily functions, MY DOG TULIP is directed toward adult audiences yet remains warm and whimsical throughout. It is also the first animated feature to be entirely hand-drawn and painted utilizing paperless computer technology. (82 mins.)

AND EVERYTHING IS GOING FINE
DIRECTOR: STEVEN SODERBERGH
US, 2010

Spalding Gray (1941-2004) was a brilliant, haunted playwright and actor, best known for his dazzling, distinctive monologues out of which he crafted an art all his own. Revealing himself through his comic, tragic, and everything-in-between revelations, his unforgettable play “Swimming To Cambodia” secured him a lasting place in the history of American theater and performance art. Soderbergh, who collaborated with Gray on GRAY’S ANATOMY (1996), relies entirely on Gray’s own words—captured from scores of recordings, interviews, and performances—to craft this insightful, entertaining portrait that is part homage, part posthumous memoir. “A story of art-making and mental illness and the sometimes thin line in between.”—Variety. (89 mins.)

AN EVENING WITH DEBORAH STRATMAN

VISITING ARTIST—Deborah Stratman is a Chicago-based artist and filmmaker interested in landscapes and systems. Her films pose a series of problems, and through their at times ambiguous nature, allow for a complicated reading of the questions being asked. All, in their own way, address belief. Tonight she introduces a program including: THESE BLAZING STARS (2011, 15 mins.), a film about comets and their historic ties to divination; IT WILL DIE OUT IN THE MIND (2006, 4 mins.) and HOW AMONG THE FROZEN WORDS (2005, 1 min.), which hail from a trilogy of films addressing confluences of the metaphysical and the rational; and O’ER THE LAND (2009, 52 mins.), a meditation on the milieu of elevated threat addressing national identity, gun culture, wilderness, consumption, patriotism, and the possibility of personal transcendence. (72 mins.)

On Monday, February 7 at 7:30 p.m., Stratman will talk more about her work in Portland State University’s MFA Lecture Series, 1914 SW Park, Room 198. Lecture admission is free.

CHILDREN OF PARADISE
DIRECTOR: MARCEL CARNE
FRANCE, 1945

One of the triumphs of French cinema, CHILDREN OF PARADISE is a dazzling and moving evocation of the forces of romanticism and social change in mid-19th century Paris. While set in the 1840s, Jacques Prevert’s screenplay offers a courageous response to the German occupation of France during World War II as it deals with themes of artistic freedom and expression. With epic scope, Carne creates a swirling world of passions and larger-than-life characters in a world of art and artifice where fate takes control. (190 mins.)

Tonight’s screening is co-presented with Portland Opera, whose double-bill production of “L’Heure Espagnole” and “L’Enfant et les Sortileges,” opening on April 1, further explores the worlds of fantasy, farce, and ultimate imagination.
