Under ordinary circumstances, the Hollywood and Movie Madness Miniplex regularly host screenings from local filmmakers, showcasing the diversity and breadth of filmmaking talent in the region. While we're currently closed due to Covid-19, we still want to keep a spotlight on local filmmakers: On this page we're proud to feature a selection of short and feature-length films made in Oregon and presented by our local partners.
In 1942, Japanese pilot Nobuo Fujita catapulted his seaplane off of a submarine, flew over the Oregon coast, and became the only pilot to bomb the U.S. mainland during WWII. He never dreamed he would one day be invited back to the region, where he would begin a lifelong friendship with the people of a small Oregon town. This online screening of SAMURAI IN THE OREGON SKY is co-presented by the Hollywood Theatre and the Oregon Historical Society. The film was produced with the support of the Hollywood Theatre's fiscal sponsorship program.
