“Strip City’s Storied Sex Workers’ Specters… a.k.a. Portland’s Dead Prostitutes”

Join us for a history of Portland’s brothels of the past, presented by Doug Kenck-Crispin. There will also be a costume contest – dress as a “lady o’ the evening” or a pimp (from any era in history) and maybe you’ll win a prize.

Following his presentation, stay to watch a rare 35mm screening of Midnight Cowboy, starring Jon Voight and Dustin Hoffman.

As always, food and drinks will be available for purchase.

Midnight Cowboy (R) [1969]

Texas greenhorn Joe Buck arrives in New York for the first time. Preening himself as a real hustler, he finds that he is the one getting hustled until he teams up with a down-and-out but resilient outcast named Ratso Rizzo.
