**FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE**
HOLLYWOOD THEATRE AND OSCILLOSCOPE’S CIRCLE OF TRUST PRESENT: NOT YOUR TYPICAL BIGFOOT MOVIE
(Portland, OR), Sept. 16, 2011 – For one night only the Hollywood Theatre brings you Not Your Typical Bigfoot Movie, followed by a special panel of local Bigfoot researchers and moderated by Sarah Mirk of the Mercury. The panel will feature Thom Powell, author of “The Shady Neighbors,” and Guy Edwards, founder and editor of the Bigfoot Lunch Club, and there could even be prizes for audience members!
Director Jay Delaney produced a short about Dallas and Wayne ten years ago, and became so engrossed he had to come back and make a feature. Through Dallas, Wayne, and their amateur Bigfoot research, Delaney explores and explodes the American Dream; the result is a film “masterful for the dignity it infuses into the duo’s lives” that offers new perspective on unusual passions. A compelling documentary about the trials and triumphs of life in the Appalachian foot hills, the documentary portrays the power of a dream to forge friendships that provide hope and meaning to transcend the harsh realities of a dying steel town. Oh, and Sasquatch, too.
“Not Your Typical Bigfoot Movie” has received multiple awards, including Official Selection at SXSW Film Festival, the Independent Film Festival of Boston, and the Athens International Film Festival. The Hollywood Theatre screening will feature special guest experts, and some surprise elements as well!
WHEN: October 17 at 7:30pm
WHERE: The Hollywood Theatre, 4122 NE Sandy Blvd.
