red and black cafe

i hope you all had a happy july 4th. i apologize for the lack of posts but i was computer challenged last week so i hope to make it up to you this week.

two weeks ago, there was a great article in the willamette week written by alex peterson that listed cafes around town that show films on a regular basis. as i very much enjoy cafes and films, i thought i would pass on the key points of his article in case you didn't see it. the article was called cafe du cinema (june 24th).

i don't know what it is about us here in portland but we are a very spoiled bunch when it comes to drinking, dining and watching films so what better than to combine all three in your favorite neighborhood cafe.

here is a list of some of my favorite cafes that are now showing films.

mother's velvet lounge 212 sw stark 503.464.1122

the press club 2621 se clinton 503.233.5656
showing every sunday night. they have a top-of-the-line projector and great atmosphere.

so head over to your favorite cafe and sip some wine, eat a great meal and see a film. i'll be over at the press club!
