The Hollywood Theatre’s bimonthly program QUEER HORROR returns with 1981’s SHOCK TREATMENT! Hosted by Portland’s premier drag clown Carla Rossi, this shockingly underrated sequel to THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW returns to the big screen for one night only in glorious 35mm! Made by the original team of Jim Sharman & Richard O’Brien, SHOCK TREATMENT follows Brad & Janet as they return to their hometown of Denton, USA and compete in a game show to test their marriage – after all, Denton isn’t just the “home of happiness,” it’s also a newly-corporatized TV studio where every citizen is either on camera or in the audience at all times. Starring Jessica Harper (Suspiria, Phantom of the Paradise), Barry Humphries (Dame Edna), and featuring the return of Rocky Horror’s unholy trinity of Patricia Quinn, Little Nell, and Richard O’Brien, SHOCK TREATMENT predicts reality TV and Kardashian-era celebrity through a killer rock ‘n’ roll score in the strangest, loudest, and most electrifying sequel you’ve never seen. Thursday, December 17 at 7:00 PM | $8 | hollywoodtheatre.org | thecarlarossi.com BUY TICKETS: http://hollywoodtheatre.org/queer-horror-shock-treatment/ ABOUT QUEER HORROR: QUEER HORROR is a bimonthly festival of genre works by queer artists, performers, and filmmakers questioning horror’s relation to queerness and what it means to identify with the monster. Maybe it’s the fact that queer people are so often relegated to shadows of otherness that the horror genre is more immediately relatable for us. We grew up with boogeymen. We’ve lived with boogeymen. Goblins and ghosts are a welcome escape from real-life monstrosities. From the work of James Whale and John Waters to Patricia Highsmith and Clive Barker, horror has deeply impacted queer culture and sensibilities and QUEER HORROR asks why. QUEER HORROR is programmed and hosted by Portland’s premier drag clown Carla Rossi and her human avatar Anthony Hudson, with artwork by resident artist Jason Edward Davis. http://www.facebook.com/events/1688767904691462/

In May of 2013, MarchFourth Marching Band was honored to do a US State Department cultural exchange tour in China, sponsored jointly by the United States Embassy in Beijing, Sias International University, Sias Foundation, and the Government of Henan China Cultural Affairs. This film traces the band's path through Henan, a relatively remote province of China often referred to as the "Cradle of Chinese Civilization," as they present an American musical experience in concerts, workshops, parades and civic events, promoting peace and goodwill through art and the common language of music. The freaky and urban MarchFourth juxtaposed against Henan's traditionally more rural community not only reflects an unusual slice of modern Sino-American relations, but also provides a unique glimpse into a part of China that most Americans don't see. http://www.facebook.com/events/613211488722234/
