Famed Oscar award winning director, Quentin Tarantino, startled audiences at a local theater in Portland with a surprise visit on Tuesday, December 29th. Tarantino attended the 6:00pm and 10:30pm screenings at the Hollywood Theatre.
Tarantino was upbeat, sarcastic and opened with, “don’t you have anything better to do on a Tuesday night?” Listen to his second intro in the video linked below.
The screenings at the Hollywood Theatre, located in Portland’s east side, mark the return of Ultra Panavision 70mm. The film was released limited to theaters equipped with the older technology.
Two theaters in Oregon can screen the 70mm including Hollwood Theater and Regal Cinema’s Bridgeport Cinema 18.
“The Hateful Eight,” is Tarantino’s eighth film and heralds a bygone western setting with typical “Tarantinoesque” violence. The film will continue its 70mm run through at least January 7th at the Hollywood and a few weeks longer at the Bridgeport Cinema.
