Based on Neil Gaiman’s international best-selling novel, Coraline’s heroine is an adventurous girl (Dakota Fanning) who discovers a doorway to a parallel world in her home. She thinks this strange universe is better than her own until the button-eyed Other Mother (Teri Hatcher) reveals her plan to keep Coraline trapped there forever. It’ll take every bit of the young heroine’s courage to escape back to the world she left behind. LAIKA’s first feature film earned Academy Award and Golden Globe nominations for Best Animated Film.



The Northwest Film Center recognizes and honors the Indigenous peoples of this region on whose ancestral lands the museum now stands. These include the Willamette Tumwater, Clackamas, Kathlemet, Molalla, Multnomah and Watlala Chinook Peoples and the Tualatin Kalapuya who today are part of the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde, and many other Native communities who made their homes along the Columbia River. We also want to recognize that Portland today is a community of many diverse Native peoples who continue to live and work here. We respectfully acknowledge and honor all Indigenous communities—past, present, future—and are grateful for their ongoing and vibrant presence.
