After a career spanning nearly 70 years, Lee passed away on June 7 at the age of 93. On Tuesday, June 30, the Hollywood Theatre pays tribute to acting legend Christopher Lee (1922-2015) with a double feature of two of his iconic films: Dracula and The Wicker Man.

Double Dragon

From the Hollywood Theater Website: Hollywood was still reeling from the disastrous Super Mario Bros. film when Double Dragon hit theaters in late 1994, narrowly beating the Street Fighter adaptation in a race to challenge audiences to sit through a 90-minute movie based on a game that’s just an endless series of punches and kicks.

Scott Wolf (you know, from Party of Five) and Mark Dacascos (you know, from nearly every low-budget martial arts movie released in the past 20 years) star...

Ultimate Star Wars

Ultimate Star Wars (DK), cowritten by Adam Bray, is an in-depth visual feast exploring the characters and storylines from the Star Wars galaxy. This beautifully illustrated guide is packed full of information about key characters and storylines from the Star Wars movie saga, The Clone Wars, and Rebels. Cloud City Garrison, a chapter of the 501st Legion of Stormtroopers, will join us for the event.

 

 

Paul Newman and Robert Redford set the standard for the buddy film with this western classic. Sundance (Redford) is a mighty quick draw, and his partner Butch (Newman) is a gifted get-rich-quick schemer. With the law on their trail, the two pack their guns, and, along with Sundance's girlfriend (Katharine Ross), head for Bolivia, away from the men trying to bring them to justice – and death.

This OMSI Reel Science presentation includes a talk and Q&A with Diane L. Goeres-Gardner, poet, author, historian, and fifth-generation Oregonian.
