Starting on Friday, March 4th and running through Thursday, March 10th, the Hollywood Theater will present Bag It, a humble documentary that makes a lasting impression about the prevalence of plastic in our daily lives.

This run could not be any more timely – just last month, legislation banning single-use plastic checkout bags in Oregon was introduced in the Oregon Legislature. Oregon could become the first state to ban the bag – but not without your help!

Join us for one of the Bag It viewings starting on March 4th.

WHAT: Bag It Oregon! The Movie, The Bill, The Chance

WHEN: 7pm Friday 3/4 – Thursday 3/10, plus 5pm on Saturday 3/5 and Sunday 3/6

WHERE: The Hollywood Theater, 4122 NE Sandy Blvd. Portland, OR

COST: $7 (seniors and kids $4)

The grand premiere – on Friday March 4th – will include a talk-back after the show with local leaders, Junk-to-funk fashion, live music, and a raffle. Visit the website for more information.

Proceeds from Bag It will go to the organizations working hard to ban the bag – OLCV, Environment Oregon, the Surfrider Foundation, Willamette Riverkeeper, Tualatin Riverkeeper, Recycling Advocates, and the Audubon Society.

Hope to see you there!

P.S. The Surfrider Foundation Portland Chapter will be tabling at the event on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. If you are interested in volunteering contact Chapter Chair Staj at
