Hecklevision at the Hollywood Theater

  • The Hollywood Theater 4122 Northeast Sandy Boulevard Portland, OR, 97212 United States (map)

Continuing the tradition of box office smashes obsessed with natural disaster, SAN ANDREAS plays to the well-accepted fact that the West Coast of the US is at high risk for a monumental earthquake. Giant quakes ravage all of California and much of Nevada, and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, who plays a Los Angeles firefighter, never puts his family obligations on the backburner and spends the whole movie rescuing his estranged wife and daughter. We see our hero navigate disaster by helicopter, plane, truck, and boat, complete with skydiving and underwater rescue.

The whole point of this epic calamity is that no amount of strife and adversity can extinguish the human spirit, and the will to keep a family together. As great Californian cities crumble around our characters, the rescue story unfolds with a script about as eloquent as The Rock’s classic wrestling dialogue.

This special screening is presented in Hecklevision: Through the magic of MuVChat technology, your jokes, heckles, and commentary are encouraged—in TEXT form! Tap out your wittiest wisecracks with your phone, and they’ll appear instantly on screen!
