Event Description: Vietnam: A Land of Surprises (by Buddy Hatton)
Influenced by Chinese and French cultures, the Vietnamese have maintained a strong sense of their own uniqueness. Experience the warm hospitality, natural beauties, and surprises that await you in exciting Vietnam.
The[masked] season marks World Cavalcade's 33nd year. They call their films travelogues. In the tradition of ancient storytelling, the filmmakers narrate each show live from the stage. You'll hear his or her travel experiences presented in a lively yet intimate manner. The[masked] series begins its span of the globe on October 10, 2007 as we cruise from Prague to Paris, and concludes on May 14, 2008 when we visit New Zealand. Other destinations this season are Vietnam, America?s Gulf Coast, Rio de Janero via the Queen Mary 2, a visit with the Dalai Lama and West Africa. For more information, go to their website World Cavalcade Travel Films
LOCATION: World Cavalcade returns to the comforting confines of the historic Scottish Rite Center. Built in 1902, the center features an elegant auditorium which seats 600, yet still provides an ideal level of intimacy for the travelogue experience. Located in downtown Portland at 1512 SW Morrison, between SW 15th & SW 16th Avenues,the center is situated on the MAX Light Rail Line, and is within a half mile of some of Portland?s finest dining. The center is handicap accessible from street level.
TICKETS: Ticket prices listed on their website are for last season ($12 main/ $13.50 balcony), so prices may be slightly higher. We will meet at the ticket counter between 7 pm and 7:15 pm and buy our own tickets. The movie begins at 7:30 pm. I will be there with my MeetUp red and white button on. Call my cell phone if you need to reach me that evening (the number is listed in the event location).
There are several places in the immediate area we can go for a drink or a bite afterwords.
