Psychotronic Afterschool Special Vol 4

Most screenings are currently at 75% capacity. Some screenings will be at 100% and, if so, the page for that event will note that. Concessions will be available. Masks are required while in all common areas, including in your seat when not actively eating or drinking.

Assembled on 16mm film and hosted by Portland film archivist/programmer Greg Hamilton!

School's back in session and the PSYCHOTRONIC AFTERSCHOOL SPECIAL has returned with a visual explosion of films about feeding your head. Made up of mind-bending educational reels, animations and commercials from the 1970s and 80s, this culture mash-up takes the classroom learning experience and sets it on a subversive track with plenty of laughs and cringes. Whether it's learning where your food comes from, or avoiding the perils of computer hacking, this program has it all.  Don't miss this one-of-a-kind media massacre!

Featuring appearances by Morris the Moose, James Earl Jones, and the inconceivable Wallace Shawn.

Featuring three special films:

MORRIS GOES TO SCHOOL - Go to class with a moose and experience the most bizarre stop-motion animations ever made.

TILT - An amazing psychedelic animation that addresses industrialism, poverty, neo-liberalism and militarism.

HOW TO BECOME A PERFECT PERSON IN THREE DAYS - Afterschool special about Milo, who never seems to get it right until he learns the art of Perfectology from the intrepid Dr. Silverfish (Wallace Shawn).
