Tin Pan Theater is Ready for Visitors

Tin Pan Theater is Ready for Visitors

Still as expertly curated as ever
A few weeks ago, I was afraid the magic of the theatrical experience had died for me. I went to the lovely Odem Theater Pub to see a movie and I completely failed to get caught up and swept away by the experience like I normally do. Odem is a wonderful space, so I thought just the act of going to a movie had been sullied for me by living in a COVID-19/murder hornet/police brutality kind of world.



The Quality and Quantity of A24

Can one production company save movies?
The older I get, the more I need to feel something from the movies I watch. Don't get me wrong, I still love a good disposable comedy or an almost instantly forgettable horror flick, but it's comforting to feel like the two hours you gave a movie was reciprocated somehow.


May the Source Be With You

June Edition
Hello you magnificent Oregonians and welcome to another entry into the May the Source Be With You canon, where I share some of the pop cultural things that are keeping me going as of late. We seem to be stuck in the middle of an episode of "Black Mirror" where everyone on Earth is trapped playing "Jumanji," and without some of our favorite podcasts, shows and movies, I think all of this would be even harder.


Where Can You Watch Movies?

Phase Two is officially in effect, but that doesn't mean every theater is open
The smell of popcorn and a giant soda in hand seems like a piece of nostalgia from long ago. And even as Deschutes County enters into Phase Two reopening guidelines, which gives theaters the green light, there are still obstacles preventing all of the theaters in the area from opening.


Not Back to Normal

Trying to have a staycation in a time of unrest
In January, I made plans with a lady friend to go on a little mini-vacation. We reserved three nights in May at McMenamin's Crystal Hotel in Downtown Portland and got tickets to see Girl Talk at the Crystal Ballroom.


Virtually Together ▶ (with video)

Tin Pan Theater and BendFilm celebrate one year together—and in the age of coronavirus, they also celebrate getting new movies on the same day as L.A. or N.Y.C.
Roger Ebert was once quoted as saying that movies are like a machine that generates empathy. Lately, it seems like that's something in short supply, with patience reaching an all-time low.


Filmmaking with Your Quaranteam

Local director Taylor Morden stays busy with "The Last Blockbuster" documentary and more
Taylor Morden never slows down. He's a multi-instrumentalist musician with a band focused on Weezer covers, a seemingly tireless filmmaker hoping to premiere his latest documentary, "The Last Blockbuster," at the Tower Theater in July, and a devoted cinephile who consumes movies like water.
