Showgirls the Musical
This November, Stumptown becomes Humptown as A Touch Too Much Productions brings the Paul Verhoeven cult classic Showgirls to The Hollywood Theatre as a two-hour musical spectacular!
Based on the “so-bad it’s good” film, Showgirls the Musical made it’s stage debut in Chicago during the fall of 2012. Salivating fanatics of the film—many of whom helped fund the project via Kickstarter–helped spread the word resulting in a sell-out show two nights in a row. After a successful run in the Windy City, producer John-Ryan Griggs moves the show to Portland where it has been recast with local talent and amplified to better fit the Hollywood Theatre.
Having both coincidentally cheated death on the same day, estranged twins reunite with the possibility of mending their relationship. Starring Kristen Wiig, Bill Hader, and Luke Wilson.

Re-Run Theater presents a 16mm print of Something Evil.
One of the few Steven Spielberg movies that has never been officially released on home video. An ABC made for TV follow up to his hit Duel, this is his second feature film. Telecast in 1972, three years before he would break all box office records with Jaws. Something Evil’s influence can clearly be seen on The Exorcist, The Amityville Horror, Spielberg’s own Poltergeist and virtually every child possession or haunted house movie made since.
A television ad producer (Darren McGavin) and his wife (Sandy Dennis) buy a farmhouse in the Pennsylvania country side to raise their young children. Slowly but surely, a demonic force makes itself known and takes possession of their oldest son (popular child star Johnny Whitaker). Even though it is devoid of gore and profanity as were the rules for TV at the time, SOMETHING EVIL is quite creepy and very well directed, clearly showcasing the young Spielberg’s incredible gifts as a filmma

Sound & Chaos: The Story of BC Studio
Director Ryan Douglas in attendance!
For over 30 years, Martin Bisi has recorded music from his studio in Brooklyn’s Gowanus neighborhood. After a chance New York encounter, the studio was founded with money from Brian Eno, who subsequently worked on the album On Land there.
Working with Bill Laswell and the band Material, Bisi recorded Herbie Hancock’s hit Rockit in this underground space. This was the first mainstream, popular song to feature a DJ and a turntable, utilizing ‘scratching’. Following that success, Bisi worked with many other influential musicians there, including Sonic Youth, Swans, Angels of Light, John Zorn, Foetus and the Dresden Dolls. He has recorded across many genres, from experimental music, to hip hop and indie rock in the old factory building by the contaminated Gowanus Canal.
However, the future of the recording studio is in question as it is squeezed in by the encroaching gentrification of the neighborhood. A new, massive Whole Foods supermarket across th
