The first installment of True Crime in Portland, presented by the Jim Elkins Appreciation Society and McMenamins Mission Cinema Society, features a screening of the 1957 noir film Portland Exposé on Wednesday, June 12, 2013 at the Mission Theater (1624 NW Glisan).
Portland Exposé is a pretty mediocre B movie, but before the screening long time Portland journalist and true crime writer Phil Stanford, author and professor of history Robert Donnelly, and KBOO radio host Wade Hockett discuss the film and mid-century Portland’s reputation as a hotbed of crime and corruption.
The doors open at 6 p.m., the discussion begins at 7 p.m., and the film starts at 8 p.m. Must be 21 or over to attend. Admission is $7.00.
