Every Friday from 10:30 am - 11:00 am

Panel reviewing the latest films, from the multiplex to the art houses to the
Northwest Film Center, and streaming films.  Occasional special shows for
seasonal or current events.

Focus is on the artistic merit of the films, and the implied consumer
function, but political and social content will be discussed as well.

Our culture is pervaded with screens, big and small.  Movies and TV shows are
among the most-accessed popular arts.  This is true across all modern

The show is unique in the Portland area, to our knowledge.
It will conform with the programming charter, as an arts service.
