It's the last day of school at a high school in a small town in Texas in 1976. The upperclassmen are hazing the incoming freshmen, and everyone is trying to get stoned, drunk, or laid, even the football players that signed a pledge not to.
The Mission Theater -- the place that first put beers into the hands of Portland theater-goers so many years ago -- has proudly introduced a new line of programming, dubbed "The Assembly."
While retaining its relaxed environment, comfortable seating and matchless sightlines, the Mission is dropping its second-run movies, stepping up its food and beverage offerings, and -- best of all -- evolving the theater's programming dramatically. The core of The Assembly features film screenings with related lectures, interviews, and performances that bring cinema to life. And fans of Mortified, Miz Kitty and live music will be happy to learn that many of the live performances that we've all loved over the years will continue. After all, The Assembly's primary mission -- engaging audiences with events that are both enriching and entertaining -- has few boundaries!
So get your curiosity on and gather with us at The Assembly. There's a lot of world out there.
