Re-Run Theater presents Soul Train Express! This event is part of the Portland Black Film Festival.
Every Saturday for almost three decades, the Soul Train would roll into town on syndicated TV and bring American audiences the best in Soul and R&B. From Marvin Gaye to Chaka Khan to Ike & Tina Turner to Stevie Wonder to the Delfonics. In honor of this groundbreaking show and it’s host Don Cornelius, Re-Run Theater presents Soul Train Express. Featuring some of the best samples of this legendary program with amazing performances, Don Corneluis’s ever changing hair style and of course those Afro Sheen commercials that sponsored the whole event. Come down to the Hollywood Theatre, board the Soul Train, and get down to these blasts from the past! Dancing in the aisle is strongly encouraged.
The Portland Black Film Festival is funded in part by the Regional Arts & Culture Council.
