At this month’s Montavilla Neighborhood Association meeting, there was an interesting presentation about Rocket Empire Machine, the building at 6935 NE Glisan St that’s being rehabilitated as a hub for small businesses.

We’ll have the video from the meeting ready next week.


There’s also discussion of a fabulously late Pride street party event for Montavilla. Contact folks at the MNA for how to help make that happen.

Movie series:

Again this year, Academy Theater is hosting a Summer Repertory Series that began last week. This weeks showings are “The Thing” (1982) and “Singing in the Rain” (1972).

“We are once again doubling down on “classic” titles all summer, showing two every week, including 5 movies on 35mm film, 2 in classic anaglyph 3D (red/blue).”
