Join us next week for our very first Movies + Conversations where we revisit the history of Vanport, the largest flood in U.S. history prior to Katrina!

We are very excited to be partnering with Vanport Mosaic, Spirited Justice, and McMenamins.

Sliding Scale

We have created sliding scale tickets for community members who are unable to pay the general ticket admission price. We recognize that financial circumstances shift and appreciate people accessing the sliding scale on an as-needed basis.

We would appreciate anyone who is able to make a donation toward our sliding scale and community-supported tickets to do so. We rely on your generous contributions to support this work and keep it available to all community members.

Community-Supported Tickets:

We are pleased to announce that we offer free, community-supported tickets. These tickets require a verification process. Start the verification process here. Please allow up to 5 business days for us to review your submission.

There will be no same-day event sales for the community-supported tickets, so make sure to get your tickets in advance.

Community-supported tickets are available to:

  • Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC)

Video of the live event will be available to view for 30 days after the event.
