Hearing stories of a UFO that crashed into the sea, nine-year-old Hogarth, always on the lookout for mutant aliens, finds a huge, metal-eating robot with an insatiable curiosity and equally insatiable appetite. But the extraterrestrial’s presence unleashes a wave of Cold War paranoia that threatens to engulf Rockwell unless Hogarth and his 50-foot friend can stop it.

Old Dog, directed by Ann Marie Flemming
Since his partner passed away, Henry relies on his carer for companionship and help with life’s obstacles, from failing eyesight and unsteady legs to fatigue and incontinence. All dogs should be so lucky and so loved.


The Cinema Unbound Drive-In at Zidell Yards:
As part of the Portland International Film Festival put on by the Portland Art Museum’s Northwest Film Center, the Cinema Unbound Drive-In at Zidell Yards welcomes guests to safely gather and experience the power that truly radical and entertaining cinematic storytelling can bring. Featuring 10 films and 5 shorts exploring what the future can be, this year’s Drive-In experience won’t be one to miss.
Presented by MUBI.



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.
