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!
Buckle in for another COVID-era award show: the Golden Globes are streaming on NBC this Sunday. Though they're not without their share of controversy (see: Music, Emily in Paris), many of the nominees are worth watching and are currently streamable, like Nomadland and Trial of the Chicago 7. If you've already seen those and are looking for some fresh options, we've got picks for you, too, like Night of the Kings (streaming via Northwest Film Center) and Seventeen (streaming via Hollywood Theatre). We've also included some films playing in theaters at Living Room and, starting Friday, Century 16 Cedar Hills and Eastport. Plus, don't forget that the Mercury's amateur stoner short film fest SPLIFF is accepting submissions through March 5! And while we're giving reminders, be sure to get tickets for next weekend's Cinema Unbound Drive-In and its affiliated Portland International Film Festival.
LOCALLY STREAMING: NEW & NOTEWORTHY
Night of the Kings
A young man is sent to a prison in the middle of the Ivorian forest ruled by its inmates and, as tradition goes with the rising of the red moon, must tell a story to the other prisoners. Learning the tragic fate that awaits him if he fails to engage his audience until dawn, he settles on the mystical life of the legendary outlaw Zama King. Philip Lacôte's Night of the Kings is this year's official Oscar submission from the Ivory Coast.
