NEWS
popcorn bucket image WE'RE TRYING SOMETHING NEW AT DARKSIDE CINEMA (BECAUSE WE SUCK LESS)
This Friday, May 29, from 6pm to 8pm, you can get a bucket of Darkside popcorn and a couple of canned sodas for only $10. The $10 deal includes one bucket of freshly made popcorn PLUS your choice of:
• two canned sodas or
• one bottled soda or
• two small candies or
• one large candy.

Additional candy/pop is available for sale and can be added to your order.

*** All sales limited to items on hand.

WILL IT COST ME MY FIRSTBORN?

You can pay with cash or credit card or one admission ticket from your previously purchased Darkside ticket book—or we'll accept a Darkside gift certificate and mark it with the adjusted value accordingly so you can use the rest of it another time.

HOW DOES THIS WORK?
This is for in-person ordering and pickup. We have a new sales counter just inside the door at the sidewalk. One person will be admitted at a time. If there is a line, it will run south toward Coffee Culture and we ask that you stay 6 feet apart from others in the line. After you make your purchase, a popcorn elf will bring your order down to you in our waiting area.

*** IMPORTANT: The upstairs areas are not open to the public at this time, so please do not use the stairs or elevator.

WHAT'S NEXT?
This Friday is a trial run to ensure we can make this safe for everyone. If this works out, we’ll expand the program.

WHAT IF I HAVE QUESTIONS?

Please text (541) 250-0441 if you have questions. Thank you for your continued support of the Darkside and our community. We love you back.

While we are temporarily closed you might want to:

• Watch a virtual cinema movie (links below)

• Buy a T-shirt and get free delivery or pickup!

• Donate to help us prepare to re-open when it's safe

• Support other local businesses in our community

REGGAE BOYZ –NR
May 29 - June 18

Jamaica has one of the highest murder rates in the world. But on November 16, 1997, when Jamaica's national soccer team – a.k.a. the 'Reggae Boyz' – qualified for the 1998 World Cup, not a single bullet was fired in the country.

As the Reggae Boyz embark on their 2014 World Cup campaign, an amateur player named 'Tuffy' Anderson dreams of playing on the national team. Tuffy works in a steel factory by day and plays in the local amateur league by night, refusing to give up his dream of one day playing on the national team.

On the soccer field Jamaica's big dream comes crashing to a halt. After a devastating losing streak, the coaching staff resigns. To revitalize the mission, Jamaica hires the colorful Winfried Schäfer, a journeyman coach who is known in his native Germany as 'Winnie Wahnsinn' ('Wacky Winnie'). Seeking knowledge about the local culture and sensing how much music and soccer are intertwined in Jamaica, Winnie meets the local newcomer band 'Nomaddz' and visits Bunny Wailer - the lone survivor of 'Bob Marley and the Wailers'. Bunny introduces him to the 'benefits of herb' and suggests "putting Tuffy on the team will change your fortunes." Winnie puts Tuffy on the team who promptly rewards him by scoring a last-minute goal that keeps the campaign alive a little longer. While Jamaica's World Cup dreams don't come true in the end, Tuffy's goal and his courage to keep a dream alive, against all odds, inspires Jamaicans of all stripes and sets the national team on a path to success that culminates with Winnie coaching Jamaica to their first-ever Gold Cup Final.

WILD HONEY –NR
May 29 - June 11

button to watch trailer
This debut feature from artists Ava Porter and Farhad Akhmetov presents a rare view of the ethnic groups of five regions across Russia: the Bashkirs of the Ural Mountains, the Cossacks of the Caucasus, the Molokans of the Southern Steppe, the Ashkenazim and Krymchaks of the Black Sea, and the Altaians of Central Siberia.

While on the surface these groups appear to differ, varying in location, religion, and language, they are united through their connection to music — for all of them, song is an expression of everyday life, each note a trace of the ancestral past, each beat a conduit to the future. Ultimately, the harmonious universality of musical expression is revealed through this rapturous ethnographic look at traditional folk music.

The multi-ethnic Bonin Islanders grew up on an island in the Pacific Ocean as Japanese nationals, under a U.S. Navy occupation following the Second World War. Having obtained at least a narrow view of American life that was complicated by their own mixed heritage, these islanders faced the painful task of having to accept the reversion of the islands to Japan in 1968. BETWEEN TIDES explores the stories of a postwar community torn apart and re-bonded by history.

YOURSELF AND YOURS –NR
June 5 - 25

button to watch trailer
“Immensely satisfying… A wise and gently absurdist allegory about how best to approach relationships.” –Scott Tobias, Variety
 
"An essential chapter in the big book of Hong... For those who haven’t yet been introduced to this singularly idiosyncratic Korean auteur, Yourself and Yours is as good a place to start as any.” -David Ehrlich, IndieWire

One of Hong Sangsoo’s most delightful comic mysteries is now available in the U.S. When painter Youngsoo (Kim Joohyuk) learns that his girlfriend, Minjung (Lee Yooyoung), was recently seen having drinks with another man, he can’t help but question her about it. It doesn’t go well and they part on bad terms. The next day, Youngsoo tries to find her, but can’t. As he wanders and frets, Minjung has a series of encounters with other men. But to them it seems she’s not herself.

Featuring a supporting cast of Hong regulars including Kwon Haehyo, Yu Junsang and Kim Euisung, YOURSELF AND YOURS is a pleasing puzzle full of mistaken identity, excessive drinking and lots of he-said, she-said. As the rumors pile up, Hong asks: In a relationship, how important is it to know everything?

Subtitled Korean
Drama/Comedy

OPENS JUNE 5: The film will open in New York on the same day and will be part of a month-long Hong celebration in partnership with Film at Lincoln Center.

LOOK AT OUR VIDEO. LOOK AT IT!

We’re one of the millions of businesses temporarily shut down due to Coronavirus.
So of course we have a video.

Darkside Cinema is temporarily closed. This is our Covid-19 video.

About Darkside Cinema

Open since April 2005, Darkside Cinema is the only independently owned and operated movie theater in Corvallis. Except for this COVID-19 mandated closure, WE ARE OPEN EVERY NIGHT, playing independent, foreign, and art films you won't find at the local megaplex.
