EverOut is The Mercury's new website devoted to things to do in Portland and across the Pacific Northwest. It has all the same things you're used to seeing from Mercury EverOut, just in a new spot!
It's a particularly nerve-shaking week here in Portland and on Earth, what with a historic number of votes still being counted in key battleground states. You've gotta take a break at some point to keep from perishing into a pile of anxiety-ridden dust, so here are this week's best movies streaming online and showing in person at select theaters and drive-ins, like the new Frederick Wiseman documentary City Hall (screening through Cinema 21), a drive-in double-feature of Toy Story and National Lampoon (at 99W), and Alice Gu's directorial debut The Donut King (available for private screenings at Cinema 21 and Living Room).
If you've seen one too many slice-of-life dramedies lately and are just itching to be overwhelmed by 89 minutes of action-packed shenanigans filmed in 1980s Texas, John Stewart (not to be confused with TV host Jon Stewart) has your ticket with this cinematic calamity.
