Greek hero Jason (Todd Armstrong) and the crew of the Argo set out to recover the legendary Golden Fleece in this mythological Greek epic brought to life by stop-motion master Ray Harryhausen’s inventive special effects and a stirring score by Bernard Herrmann. “Another Harryhausen animated masterpiece. Only Sinbad [also showing May 19] has as many great scenes. . . Jason encounters purple-winged harpies, Triton the merman, a seven-headed hydra whose teeth turn into amazing skeleton warriors, and the bronze giant Talos. A classic fantasy.”—The Psychotronic Encyclopedia of 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.
