What we’re about
We're the original and largest film club in Oregon. Setup like a book club, we select one movie and meet to watch and then discuss the film. We prefer a variety of new and old films; which means we will meet at movie theaters, private homes and special locations for screenings.
The group meets at predetermined location for a particular film. Come to one or come to them all. There is no requirement to attend all meetings. Movies and views are diverse. It is always a great time to meet new people and to simply get to 'see' Portland in its finest.
The real enjoyment in the group is being able to sit around a few tables to chat about the films we have watched together and learn the incredible truth of differing and diverse opinions. Many of our discussions help others decide on whether they want to watch a movie or not. Join us for what is usually a pleasant and laughable time.

With unparalleled access to their intense, daily struggles and triumphs, this film, directed by the acclaimed Victoria Bruce, offers a deeply personal and inspiring look into the lives of those who stand on the front lines of humanitarian justice.

So Misunderstood • Directors: Seretse Njemanze and Jehnovah Carlisle
This film focuses on the nuanced work norms and cultural facets that are difficult to pin down and challenge.
