Film Events 5/6-5/13 | Film Events | Bend | The Source Weekly - Bend, Oregon

Coverage for Central Oregon, by Central Oregonians.
100% Local. No Paywalls.

Every day, the Source publishes a mix of locally reported stories on our website, keeping you up to date on developments in news, food, music and the arts. We’re committed to covering this city where we live, this city that we love, and we hear regularly from readers who appreciate our ability to put breaking news in context.

The Source has been a free publication for its 22 years. It has been free as a print version and continued that way when we began to publish online, on social media and through our newsletters.

But, as most of our readers know, times are different for local journalism. Tech giants are hoovering up small businesses and small-business advertising—which has been the staple for locally owned media. Without these resources, journalism struggles to bring coverage of community news, arts and entertainment that social media cannot deliver.

Please consider becoming a supporter of locally owned journalism through our Source Insider program. Learn more about our program’s benefits by clicking through today.

Sprout Film Festival

The ninth annual Sprout Film Festival comes to the Tower Theater. The films focus on developmental disabilities and all try to shine a light on the personalities and plights of some of these people. Some of the films include A Time For Georgia (following six months in the life of a four-year old with autism), Acting Normal (about a performing arts studio for the developmentally disabled), Beyond Borders (a poetic narration following three people of different ethnic backgrounds all suffering from disabilities), and Close My Eyes (documentary about an Australian rock band where five members have disabilities).

Friday, May 8. 11:30 am and 7 pm. Tower Theatre. 835 NW Wall St. $6-$10

Queens of the Roleo

A documentary about 11-time world log rolling champions out of Lewiston, Idaho. All female, all badass, all really good at balancing on floating logs that are spinning in water. Funded by a Kickstarter and produced by local journalist and former TV executive Dave Jones, this film picks up an otherwise footnote of regional history and expands it to the importance its deserves—a story about competition, coaches, and the fading logging industry.

Thursday, May 14. 6 pm. Mcmenamins, St. Francis. 700 NW Bond St. $10

Rifftrax Live: The Room

It is here! The greatest bad film of all time is being shown at Old Mill with the old MST3K crew tearing it to shreds for our listening pleasure. Hands down the worst movie I have ever sat through, The Room truly feels like it was shot in another dimension, one close to ours, but where everything is just the tiniest bit off. Horrible sex scenes, tons of playing catch, more greetings than you can shake a spoon at, The Room is a must-see for anyone fascinated by film as an art form.

Tuesday, May 12. 7:30 pm. Old Mill Stadium. 680 SW Powerhouse Dr. $12.50
